DSM-510 "Unsupported Format" Divx Problems

Post by mdeeter » Tue Jan 29, 2008 7:18 am

I am unable to get my DLink DSM-510 to play DIVX avi files. I always get an error: "Unsupported Format" If I convert the file to XVID, then it plays fine.

I've installed TwonkyMedia 4.4.2 and 4.4.3 and 4.4.4 and none of them play DVIX avi files.

Any suggestions?

yep, you've found the problem everyone comes across with one of these boxes. Basically it's only certain versions of Divx's it'll support. Rather that mucking about converting your Divx's to Xvid's, all you need is "Nic's Avic FourCC changer" (google it, it's free). Run it, point to your AVI and set both 'drop-downs' to xvid. In a blink of an eye, voila! works for me everytime.
