Hi guys, can you please give me more detailed information on what a Divx file is? what re the advantages of converting video files into Divx? Is the picture quality reliable? Thanks

Divx is one of the many avi file types avalable. The picture quality is generally not as good as dvd though it is decent and the file size is substantially smaller for the same amount of video. Wheather there is an advantage to converting video files to divx kind of depends on what kind of video files they are to start with as well as what you are going to try to play them on. You might want to consider mpeg4 formats. If I am not mistaken, I think they are beter than divx from a quality vs size standpoint.
