I just thought I'd let you know about a DVD player I bought today. It's a Medion 7457 which is available from ALDI - I bought mine in Spain. Medion put their label on products made by well known manufacturers and sell them exclusively through ALDI.
This machine is what I've been waiting for!! It supports MPEG 4 and divX!! So now I can watch my .avi movie discs on tv instead of the pc! ( I don't do VCD! )
I've seen the KISS divX/DVD player advertised for £99.00 in the UK.. I've also seen a Philips machine over here for 199.00 Euros. But this Medion cost just 75.00 Euros (£55) brand new c/w remote!
I've tested both Xvid and divX discs on it and they all play fine!
It supports DVD/DVD+R/-R/DVD+RW/DVD-RW/MPEG 4/DivX4&5.X/SVCD/VCD/CD-R/CD-RW/WMA/PHOTO/CD AUDIO-CD. It has a built in AC3 decoder and has optical/co-axial outputs for sound.
MPEG 4 technical details:
Resolution:720 x 480 @ 30 fps; 720 x 576@
Bit rate: 4000kbps; Peak max. 10000 kpbs;MPEG 4 ASP level 5
