Okay, so I have a dillemma.

My friend gave me a flash drive with (the new) Halloween movie on it. My girlfriend is coming by in about an hour to watch it with me.

Here's the problem: Its a Divx file, so if I just burn it to a dvd as it is, it wont play. Is there any way I can take the file and convert it to a file that can be played on my DVD player? I don't think its very romantic or fun to watch the movie on my computer with her.

An hour? Erk :/


You can try downloading and installing ConvertXtoDVD [will probably need to torrent it], but depending on the size of the film, it's likely to take at least an hour to convert and then another while to burn. Or at least, it does on my PC.


EDIT: Or can you just burn the DivX file as a VCD?

If your DVD player doesn't read Divx the quickest way your gonna be watching that on your DVD player is to convert it to a KVCD (will take about 2 hours.) You could burn it as a DVD but it will be choppy and bad quality, also it will take about 6 hours to burn. Google "Avi to kvcd" and download a legit looking program.

Can't you set your computer up so it shows whats on the screen on your TV? So you can watch the movie off your computer ON your TV with no burning or downloading involved.

If your girlfriend is comming in an hour that's the only way your going to be watching it. Run, don't walk, to Future Shop to pick up a cable.

I've put AVIs to DVD and the quality didn't change.
