I want to buy a Divx Player ...
And I'm looking right now at the Liteon LVD-2002 .
Have any of you guys have had any experience with this device or a similar device.!
I mean, I'm starting a collection of DVD's (I have like 70-something now) but I have a bunch of Divx movies on normal CD-R's so ... I don't want to connect my PC to my TV anytime I want to watch a Divx movie so I want to buy this box.
What do you guys think?
The old version LVD-2001 received good reviews but still I'm a little bit skeptical.!
BTW, the sooner you post the better (I want to buy this no later than tommorrow)

How much money do these devices cost? A laptop w/TV out is also convenient.RayH42450@gmail.com

This LiteOn Player is something like the KISS DVD Player available in the UK.
It plays DVDs, CDRW,CD-R, etc...
A link coming up:boo!

Maximum PC gave it praise for being one of the first DVD players to support Mpeg4(DivX) havent heard much else out of them yet but from my experience LiteOn normally makes good products and the price tag dosnt sound bad for a new Technology. If I needed a DVD player I would get that over anything else I have seen so far.

I heard negative stuff about the KISS player (namely it has bugs and stuff and the video freezes and all that) but I haven't heard nothing bad of this unit.!boo!

So ... uhhh... no one has one of these devices?
Guess I'll have to buy it and be the first then huh?
Kinda of weird since I know that a lot of people have divx movies on their PC's.! Oh well.. maybe I'll do a review for techimo about this.!boo!

You mean that if this is the format of movies you can get from the internet??? If so, yes it is. I have a bunch of movies of this format so it would be cool if I can view them on my DVD player instead of using my computer.!
If this is not what you mean then ... I do not understand!boo!

There are so many codecs out there for divx and there are always new ones so is there anyway you can update the machine? I know Xvid is a popular video compression tool. Will your player play xvid movies?
In the past I always used the tv-out on a PC or laptop like Ray suggested. That worked really well for me. Plus you can play any video file and not just divx. You can get 25-30ft of s-vid cable for $25 or so and RCA cable doesn't cost anything these days. I guess it depends on how your house is set up and whether or not you need portability.

f1oored... afaik you wouldn't have to upgrade the machine. It's the job of the DivX development team to make sure newer versions of the codec are backwards compatible with older versions and with hardware.
