Divix (WMV) To Play on Blu-Ray Player

by TigerJon73 / December 10, 2011 2:55 AM PST

I have a disc with some movies on it that a co-worker gave me. He says they will play on a player that supports Divix. I have a Panasonic Blu-Ray player that the owners manual says will support Divix. However, when I insert the disc, the player says it's an unrecognized format. The files on the disc show as .avi files. Is there any way to convert them s they'll play on the player? Thanks!

What's the model number? Any Divx or Divx+HD logo on the player? I am sure the files can be converted but is it worth all of that trouble.

Just go to and download the player and codecs for your computer (it's free).

How To Use Handbrake

Can you suggest a tutorial on how to use HB to convert .avi to DVD? I already have HB and have used it many times to convert DVD to files I can view in iTunes, but never .avi to DVD. I have been tinkering with it, bt am having n luck. Thanks for any help

Because DVD FLICK could obviate the need for Handbrake.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
