some standalone dvd players are able to read divx, but I don’t know if are able to read also XVID files (your seem a xvid, not a divx)

however, to play this movie on a standalone dvd player you must first convert it in dvd format (ie convert xvid file into vob files)

to make this conversion you need a specific software. there are many softwares to do this, some freeware other at payment

to find a tool try to search here

after this conversion (can be a long process depending on your CPU power) you can burn resulting files onto a DVD with nero choosing

new compilation --> DVD video

remember:
a standalone DVD player need to have the movie title ALL IN CAPITALIZED LETTERS and all words must be separated with underscore “_” (no spaces) and all vob files must be inserted into VIDEO_TS directory

hope this can help

It looks like your sample is a TV episode , judging by the time (42mins).

I tend to make these VCD or SVCD & burn onto CD-RW, just to watch them & then overwrite. This is obviously a cheaper & far quicker option , especially if you have , say, 24 of them to watch. The quality is fine for this length of video clip.

The link above is still good though.

vso divx to dvd nice, fast and free, but doesn`t add chapters.

avi2dvd doesn`t support as many formats as vso but has more options and is also free.

i tend to use avi2dvd most.
