it doesn't take too long to re-encode some videos. they never claimed to have divx support so you knew what you were buying

Uh, I may be wrong but Divx isn't MPEG4, just a derivative of it.

no they didn't say it, but MPEG-4 support, what do you think that means? I mean, they wouldn't support QT (I sure as hell hope not anyways).

Stop blaming Sony for not shelling out Millions in Divx Licensing so you can watch your pirated movies anywhere you want.

It's definitely one hell of an assumption on my part, but by no means is it a strech of the imagination.

It's a fvcking SONY product. King of proprietary technology. WTF did you expect?

Also, MPEG-4 support means it's supports MPEG-4, nothing else. Do you also think your DVD player plays VHS tapes because it says "video"?

actually its for my pirated porn thank you very much ;)

actually, all the movies i own on divx, I do own on DVD. I may not have actaully *bought* the DVD first, but I did later. The main reason I wanted was for fan-subbed anime, which is perfectly legal.

i was under the assumption (perhaps mistaken) that divx was mpeg-4.
