    I think most hove dvd players support vcd or svcd. Convert your Divx files to this format and you're able to play them on your home dvd player.

    Yeah, my El-cheap-o Apex player suppots that, but there a re 2 issues..

    1 - I would rather have 1 disc of a movie than 2, and...

    2 - While a 2 1/2 hour divx can fit on 1 CD, when converting from divx to vcd, that same movie will end up on 2 1/2 discs. In vcd format, you can't get much more than a minute per meg, without major video quality loss...
