Almost any new DVD player will play mpeg movie files. What i do though so my DVDs will never have a problem on a DVD player i user Nero Vision to convert and burn the files. This is the best method IMO.
Yes. I have one of these. It's great. Just load an external USB hard drive with video files from the computer, then move it to the WD media player and plug it in. Plays practically everything. No need to convert.
They come in two models, one about $25 more expensive than the other. The more expensive one includes an ethernet port. Outputs are the basic left/right/video, composite video, HDMI, and the fiber optic multichannel audio.
