AVI files supported?

Well I was wondering if I can burn AVI files onto cd and play them on DVD? is that possible and if it is how do I know what DVDs have them supported,

THanks in advance for the people who help me out...

The only DVD players that I know of that support Windows Media Files are the Apex AD-2100 and the Apex AD-2500
Not to bad a price for either of them as well considering the different files it can read.Give them a look.

Hope this helps

I think he was hoping it played Divx, which I'm sure it does not, as it would need the codec installed as well.

No, that's just Windows Media audio files, it's DEFINITELY not .avi (and I assume you mean DivX when you say .avi).

you can go to doom9.net, they have guides that may help you turn your avi into a vcd or svcd... also you can make mini-dvd's which would be a cd that has a dvd root system (So your dvd player thinks it is a dvd) but your limited to 700 megs which is about 20 to 30 min depending on how you encode it.

Are you sure its just the audio?
Not saying your wrong.
I was under the impression it played the video files associated with WMP.
Would be really cool if it did,no converting to VCD!!!!

I tried getting info on the net to clarify exactly what they mean by Windows Media Files,but found no exact explanation as to either audio or video.

I think he meant that the APEX could only read audio Windows Media Files and not was not capable of displaying a video file using the avi extension. AVI is an audio/video file type.

Thats the impression I had by them labeling that.
I thought it meant you could take a WMP file without converting to VCD and viewing it.
Meaning a video file and not just an audio file.
That seems kinda lame then......It already plays MP3 so why even bother with Windows Media Files?

Oh well,maybe someday
