DivX files
DivX is the name of a revolutionary new video codecwhich is based on the new MPEG-4 compressionstandard for video. Whether DivX files play correctlyon your player or not depends on the preparationand production of the audio and video files, thecodecs and the type of recording equipment used, aswell as on your computer’s parameters. It is thereforepossible that you cannot play a DivX file or that partor all of it is defective. It also sometimes happens thatyou can play the images (video) but not the sound(audio).DivX disc compatibility with this player is limited asfollows: The maximum resolution of the DivX file is below720x576 (W x H) pixels. • DivX filenames should not exceed 56 characters.• If the video and audio structure of the recordedfile is not interleaved, either video or audio isoutputted. • If the file is recorded with GMC, the unit supportsonly 1-point GMC. GMC is the acronym for GlobalMotion Compensation. It is an encoding toolspecified in the MPEG4 standard. Some MPEG4encoders, like DivX or XviD, have thisoption.There are different levels of GMCencoding, usually called 1-point, 2-point, or 3-point GMC.• DivX files with subtitles in .SRT, .SUB and .SMIformats can be played. Correct playback of alllanguages may not be possible as somecharacters may be missing.
