    You need mpeg4 modifier to remove the packed bitstream on the the divx files before you burn them.

    If the files your getting have packed bitstream then yes strip it out and it will play smoothly.

    Is it very easy (and fast?) to strip the Packed Bitstream with Mpeg4 modifier? If so do you lose quality?

    No you don't loose any quality.

    Damn, I just posted in the other thread I was decided on the LG DVX9900H. But the Pioneer players look better quality, and if packed bitstream is easy to get rid of before you burn files it might be a better choice.

    Still, I have a lot of old files..........is packed bitstream a new thing, so only recent files I'd have to muck about with, or is it likely to affect even older files?

    We have a Pioneer 470 (same as 575 fimrware wise) and LG players. IMO the LG have better menus, screen layout and plays things PB no worries and is cheaper!

    So some DivX players actually play PB's (no judder) without the need to unpack?

    Phillips 5960 has firmwares with packed bitstream support also Peekton 6006 plays them.

    You may come across GMC/QPEL problems with some divx files use this guide for removal:-

    My Tevion does too - it has a Zoltan chip in it which out performs most mediatek ones.

    Get hold of Gspot to quickly check AVI files to see which has packed bits, GMC, QPEL, etc quickly.

    If I've a directory or so of files I use MPEG4Toolkit, which is based on Mpeg4Modifier, but has a different interface including the option to batch process all files in a directory (copying them to a subdir, best as after all Mpeg4modifier isn't always perfect).
