I am a movie buff and it’s been years. I have a portable VCD player which I bought four years ago. But watching movies on TV was not of my liking. That was because of the old TV set. Last year on my fathers birthday we bought a new 29″ flat TV. It is big enough for me. And since then I always wanted a DVD player. But the problem was that I wanted the DivX files to play on the TV. So I waited and on Saturday I bought a DVD+DivX player.
I tried searching the net for that model but I didn’t find the link for that. Before that I did some study about available players. There was no player which supported Xvid format which is as popular as DivX. I contacted a dealer nearby for a similar player. There was none available. I was also looking for a player which could play files from USB drive. And all this search ended on Saturday.
Before buying the player, I went to the showroom and asked for models available. I asked whether I can check the player by playing from USB drive and he said OK. That was on Thursday. So I prepared some file samples from all the movie files I have and dumped them on USB drive. Following are the details of file samples.
