Dvd converters

Hi everyone

I have converted some dvd’s to .avi files using Cucusoft Ultimate DVD and Video Converter Suite. They play fine on my computer using VLC player, however, when I transfer them to my Sumvision Cyclone multimedia player (which works perfectly) it only plays the audio with no picture.

Any advice? there aren’t many settings to change, only the quality which effects the size of the output file. Should I try a differnet output format or can anyone recommend a good conversion software.

thanks

Welcome to CD Freaks :slight_smile:

.avi files are just a container for particular video and audio encodings. We need to know which ones you selected in the Cucusoft program (eg XviD or DivX for video, .mp3 for audio), and whether those can be played by the Sumvision.

Hi thanks for reply
my player supports these formats
Supported media files:

  • Video: VOB (DVD file), MPEG, MPEG4 (AVI, DivX v3.11/4/5, XviD)
  • Audio: MP3, WMA
  • Image: JPEG

I had Divx codec selected but didn’t notice what version it was could this be the problem??

Try making the output an MPG4… with either the Xvid or the Divx.
