Default Divx Player

Hey fellas I am thinking of buying a Divx player because when I use Nero or ConvertXtoDVD, it takes too long to make a DVD. Also I can put 6 700MB movies on 1 DVD!!!!!!!!!!!!! As far as I can see, the quality is the same between watching a Divx movie on my TV or a DVD made with NeroVision. My question is how long does it take to make Divx? I am looking at buying Philips DVP5140.

Depends on your computer's specs. Mainly the processor.

Burning a avi of 700MB is FASTER than converting to a DVD(4.7GB) then burning it. So this has nothing to do with pc specs.

true but you have to convert it to divx from avi first which can take a long time depending on your cpu. if your system is old enough this could take hours.
you would also need to buy a converter(or find a crack)

You could do what i do and use a media streamer such as a netgear EVA8000. This just connects to your pc and TV and you can stream the films direct, so your not wasting discs.

Nero 7 does take a bit of time to convert and burn your files, but if you want a quicker way but a little bit more fiddly (not much) then i would suggest using win avi to convert your film( only takes half the time as Nero) then use super DVD creator to burn them, this in my opinion has the fastest burn engine I have ever used.
