For you pros this must be a very "simple" question, but very hard to find the answer!
All I want is a home, stand alone player that can play simple unmodified "wmv" or "mpg" (mpeg) or "avi" video files, such as those you download from a website with a product demo or tutorial.
I've gone to http://www.videohelp.com/dvdplayers and see a load of formats [VCD SVCD CVD mini/cDVD XVCD XSVCD DivX/XviD/MPEG-4 MPEGISO DVD-MPEGISO JPG Images DVD-JPG Images] but this doesn't answer my question.
I have a zone free player that plays DVD, VCD, CVD, JPG, etc. etc. but it won't play any MGP or WMV video files off my computer when they are burned onto a DVD or CDR.
I'm sure that there are plenty of conversion programs to modify my files so they can be burned and played.
I was considering the Neuston DVX-1201 until I saw it was discontinued (and a little pricey). Is there a cheaper solution to play the basic WMV & MPG files "as is" in a stand alone box?
