    I have some Divx and Xvid files which I put on a CD and they play on Windows
    Media Player with the Codecs of course installed.
    Which DVD players will they play on and will they play from a film file
    that was copied to a CD or does it have to be copied in a certain way in
    order to play on a DVD player that will play these files?

    Check out the Philips DVP642 DivX-Certified Progressive-Scan DVD
    Player. There are reviews of this player at The one I
    have had for a year works great. The only minor flaw is the remote

    goro.... ATM we are working with several compaines that are working on
    adding Matroska support for their hardware. None however are in a rush
    at the moment and we are avidly seeking and talking with 'chipset'
    companies to add support for it. My best guess is that you will not see
    anything till mid 2006... and mostly this will come once we add our
    menu system to 1.xx or our future 2.xx versions.

    Thanks Dan, this is great news indeed and I applaud all the people
    working on it. Thank GWAD I can escape from .AVIs and have a nice
    robust system!

    I'll keep an eye out and hopefully when some of these chipsets start
    making it out, you'll let us all know.

    btw, the menu system isn't going to be as gwad-awful as DVDs, is it? i
    friggin HATE animating (non-bypassable) menus.
