fourcc change

posted in Video Codecs

does anyone know how to use the fourcc change program available at

I need to change from xvid to divx so i can run my files on a standalone divx/dvd player.
Everytime i try, the sound works fine, but the screen is a multicoloured mess!!
Anyhelp would be great
thanks reply

Changing a fourcc for compatibility doesn’t just mean changing the fourcc (let me elaborate). XviD and DivX are different flavors of MPEG-4, and MPEG-4 has specifications on encoding based on levels, profiles, and other things. Therefore even if you change the fourcc, but the level/profiles don’t match the ones your standalone divx player is capable of decoding, it won’t work. reply


I assume that you are using an aenertxl Hard Drive with this.Is it formatted as NTFS? if so, this probably won’t work. It will need to be in FAT32 format.I don’t reckon there will be any firmware updates for the DVD player. reply
