Playback problem of MPEG4 file format

#1

Hello friends!

I have a DVD player that supports MPEG4 and I have been watching a lot of MPEG4 contents in it, both downloaded stuff as well as home shot videos.

Recently I marked that some of MPEG4 contents fail to play in the player. I brought a DVD yesterday and converted it into XVID using AutoGK, but was unable to run it in my player. Then I converted the same movie to DIVX (thinking it may work now) but failed again. Just to check if the player is working fine, I tried some old MPEG4 contents in my collection and they all worked fine.

I am just not able to understand why is it not working. I am posting the details of the file so that you may understand the codec better…

DIVX

XVID

Please help…

Maybe try a different brand of media, or a different conversion program… I’m betting it’s the media… Only use verbatim or Taiyo Yuden…

check your player specs and someone must have encoded the stuff, so ask him/her too.

It could be the file size if it’s an older machine. Some didn’t support anything over 1gb which I guess this is once you add it all up!
