maybe it will support DivX too (after a little hack :wink: )

yeah! DivX :wink: support would be a much appreciated addition with upgradeable software via cd! :stuck_out_tongue:

If you want a DiVx player, then make one out of a computer. I made one with old parts lying around. You just need a descent video card with a S-Video out (better quality that way) and there you go. I even have a black desktop case and a black DVD-Rom so it blends in with the stereo and tv. Its real easy to do. :slight_smile: Sort of like a X-box you could say.

Yes you need an os. I use Win98 SE. I put my a program called Micro DVD Player in the “Start” Menu. The program is set to auto play and CD inserted. So after that all you have to do is put the cd in before you turn it on or just hit the reset buton and it will auto play the movie in full screen. :4
