Divx is still the best low end form of video conversion. How else can you get that big 7 gig file on a little cd disk? I bought 4 Philips DVD players with divx built in, over a year ago. I hardly ever use discs anymore, flash drives have replaced the use for them. And if that doesn’t work, HDMI can go from computers straight into TV’s, totally bypassing and video device. This is NOT the way they want you to move, not needing their precious vhs/dvd/blu ray players. I saw USB’s on a lot of players for a year or 2, then they stopped. Guess they got smart, and saw what was happening.
