View Full Version : [ubuntu] DiVX to Archos AV 340

August 26th, 2009, 01:32 PM

I am new to Linux (2nd day of running Linux O.S.). I have downloaded and presently running Ubuntu ultimate edition 2.3 and need some assistance with DivX. I can download and run DivX onto my computer without any problems, but after I succesfully transferred this data to my archos external multimedia player hard disk drive, it will not play on my T.V. When I scroll through the T.V.'s menu it does not even show that the data is present on my mediaplayer, which it is.

Can anybody help me in this matter. I would hate to have to go back to VISTA or to dual boot my system.

Thank you in advance

am not sure the Archors play Divx out the box you may need to buy the codec if they have it available Archors mostly play Avi files out of the box

Thank you for your quick reply :razz:

The first film that I ever downloaded with ubuntu was screwed up some how. Ubuntu worked just great :smile:. I downloaded yet another today and it worked just fine :popcorn:. I was really wondering because I have other DivX and XviD films on my archos that play just fine.

This is really EXCELLENT! No more microsoft for me :lolflag:
