    Hi,

    I've made back-ups of my movies into divx format and was wondering whether there is a way that I can play them on a normal DVD player...

    If not, can you buy players that support this format?

    Thanks in advance for any replies,

    Steve

    No they cannot be played on an ordinary DVD player but you can now buy DVD players that will play Divx.

    Just to let you know this thread might get closed as it could be seen as condoning piracy. :nono:

    If not I'm sure you can get some PC software to encode the DivX back to DVD Mpeg format - try vcdhelp.com

    Needs a DVD writer for your PC mind.
