First you have to upgrade to real player plus to play avi, witch you have to pay. You can play your avi file with jet audio. It’s free. You can also check out vlc, it’s also free. Remember, avi is what format DVD uses. reply

Hello everyone,

Problem and one solution.

I am searching for the cause of why some AVI’s will play in my DIVX player and not others. I have broken down the files and looked into the codec’s used to compress the audio and the video (for newbies out there “codecs” are what allow you to see and hear different file formats, AVI, MPEG, WMV etc...on your computer and each program has different kinds of codecs) and found no difference at all. In fact the only difference I could see was that some of the AVI’s had a video bit rate of 12 and others had 24. That didn’t seem to matter. I also changed my region setting on my ONYX dvd/DIVX player to 0 (zero) for no region specific just in case. No good, but that was a desperate measure anyway. lol

So here is the solution I’ve come up with, the only one I can figure so far.

I got AVS video converter and I take the file that won’t play, load it, select to change it to an AVI (no special settings) and an hour and a half later (slow laptop) I have an AVI file that will play in all of my players on the laptop (windows player, Realplayer, VLC player) and on my ONYX dvd/divx player.

Now, the file I loaded was AVI and the file that came out was AVI. If you break them down they are the same all the way through. The only difference I can find is that the original is compressed slightly (8% average) more than the file that comes out when done. That’s the part I’m trying to figure out. Hope this helps others.

By the way, if you get a file that the audio doesn’t match up with the video (out of sync) then use VirtualDub program. Use it to open video file, choose video and click on “direct stream processing”. Then video again, and click on “frame rate”, then click “change so audio and video durations match”, then click “ok”. Go to file, and click “save as AVI”. That will fix it. IF you get a warning screen at the beginning when you first load the video into VirtualDub that you should use “Full processing Mode” don’t bother. Run it through AVS video converter first and then if it is still out of “sync” with audio and video, then at this point run it through VirtualDub. If you still get a warning, then likely the file was compressed wrong.

Hope this helps some people, it does work for me. I likely won’t be back here again, I’m continuing my quest for answers elswhere. Good luck. reply

WAIT WAIT WAIT!

I am back and more importatnly I have found the answer.

Ok, so some people are using what is called an AVI BOVP/packed bitstream. What is it you ask? WHO CARES! LOL Actually it is a way of SUPPOSEDLY saving space for the transfer of the file. So how much space does it save? About 2% to 4%, hardly worth it. That might amount to 2 mins or a little more of download time. Rediculous and problematic for many.

My original post still stands for a lot of AVI’s, BUT if you get the MediaInfo program (it’s free) and open the video file, then you select to view the selection as a “sheet”, you will see (or not see) in the information below that it is an AVI file with or without "(BOVP/packed bitstream)". If it has that then it won’t play in anything other than VLC media player on your computer as most other devices and programs don’t support it. So why pack it in the first place? I don’t know...the world is full of d**ks. Now, using the AVS video converter as I mentioned before will do the work of “un-packing” the AVI so it will play. It is still the same in every respect but just a hair bigger in size.

OR, instead of taking 1.5 hours to do this I have found a program on the net called “MPEG4 modifier” (MPEG4 is just another name for AVI). This nifty little program will open your AVI file and then you can select the aspect ratio (4:3 for basically a square image, like on older televisions) or 16:9 for wide screen tv’s. If you are unsure as to the aspect ratio of the movie, play it on the VLC player and see if it is wide or not.
Next you have to know is it 4:3 PAL or 4:3 NTSC and the same choices for 16:9. If you are in Canada, USA or Japan it is NTSC, everywhere else in the world is PAL.
Next, click on “unpack” and click “save”.

That’s it. It has removed the STUPID, BOVP/packed bitstream in an overall time of around 10 mins from start to finish. Much better.

Ok everyone, again, I hope this helps.

Cheers,

HI GUYS SORRY TO BURST YOUR BUBBLES BUT THE MOVIES THAT SAYS AVI AND DOESNT PLAY ARE ACTUALLY FAKE DOWNLOADS. THE REFERRING SHORTCUT THAT TAKES YOU TO DOWNLOAD SITE IS TAGGED AND THE OWNER OF IT GETS PAID FROM THE DOWNLOAD SITE LIKE RAPIDSHARE ,TURBO BIT , HOTFILES ETC...LOOK AT THE DOWNLOAD NAME AND REPORT TO THE SITE YOU FIND THE MOVIES AT. reply

OK well I am just an old lady back in school, I am taking a bus tech course and I am doing a power point assignment. the Video clip provided is from the course materials, and its CD. So I know it isn’t a fake video clip. The problem is when I insert the video clip to Power point I get a white box, no video. It also will not play on windows media player. I have no problem watching videos ie: youtube, FB etc. I have updated all my drivers with still no luck. Now remember when answering I do not have a clue about computer systems and how they work,. I need a keep it simple stupid explanation of what I can do. Thanks reply
