Z110bt - Divx via USB?
Posted 03 July 2009 - 02:07 PM
I checked the manual, and it specifically says that it will play DivX files via cd and dvd and states that USB can play Video but only lists mpeg4 and not specifically DivX.
(My JVC AVX800 works beautifully to play Divx files via usb, and i have ripped most of my dvd's to divx and play them from a portable hard drive. I don't want to loose that functionality, and want to find out if the new Pioneers can do the same thing before I throw down the $$ on a unit like this. )

I guess I'm going to have to stick with JVC... I'd have preferred to go with Pioneer...
If anyone from Pioneer is reading this, take a look at your low-end competitors and get up to speed already...

For one thing, my divx library is all 852x480, and about 3GB per movie. So that won't work on a FAT formatted drive anyway. Also, it's a waste of space to have the videos in the same quality for watching on a 42" screen, for watching on a 7" screen. I'm going to have to reencode everything to shrink it down, so no big deal to put it in mpeg4 I guess.

With the listed 16GB limit getting those file sizes down would be a good idea.

But I thought Mpeg4 and DivX were inter-compatable. If it plays mpeg 4 files via USB, shouldn't it work with DivX files too? (DivX IS an mpeg4 format)
Can anyone test this?
