    Heres the question:

    Lets say i have a video clip, its divx and i decide to burn it onto a cd (normal cd and burner)

    if i buy a dvd player, would i beable to play it on that dvd player?
    if so, would it have surround sound too ?

    i have heard that dvd players can't play divx stuff...not sure though
    i don't know anything about dvd's :D

    edit:
    i checked a page and it says that i can't play divx, well is there a way i can convert em or something without loss of quality so i can play on dvd

    na dude, divx don't play on DVD players....but you can watch them on your dvd player if you convert them to a VCD or SVCD.

    But There are a few new release dvd players that have the divx codec and can play DivX videos....but they will take a while to become available....

    Hope this helps

    As for the surround sound you mentioned, you can't do this. The soundtrack has to be pre-encoded with a Dolby Digital/DTS Signal.
    I did searching round the net for a program that lets you do this. I searched for "Dolby Encoder" in Google, and I came across a program that lets you encode your sound to Dolby specifications, however it failed to download properly. Still, something to think about, there may be other programs out there. ;)
