The above video goes away if you are a member and logged in, so log in now!
Just rename them to *.avi and you're good. I haven't even seen a divx movie named .divx in a very long time. It's just a codec, no need to name an extension after it too.

I think you're problem is either a non divx/xvid codec, or an insufficient converting job from the converting program. I wish I knew video shtuff better. The best I've done with converting was a wmv to avi and it works, however the avi still has the same properties as the wmv. I can't fast forward, rewind, or even jump to points in the video using select. And that's the best I've done.
I'd believe that if it didn't already work. I have yet to try other videos, but the first episode worked flawlessly and the second screwed up. Sometime this week I'll try some more. I doubt it's the converter since there's very little to muck up in the conversion process and it works with several programs in Windows.
You can have innumerous numbers of codecs on your computer. SMS only supports divx/xvid/avi. AVI's still use mp3 for audio encoding tho. The video is handled with divx/xvid. I've downloaded a couple videos that open in SMS as an MP3 and play nothing but tons of loud static. Dunno what codec those were tho. If SMS is playing as MP3 and you can hear the audio, then the mp3/audio encoding worked, but there's a problem with the video codec. If you a bunch of static like me, then it's an incompatible codec and needs to be converted to divx/xvid again.
But why would two episodes within a uniform anime release by a certain group (not one of those hodgepodge jobs) have differing codecs?
Here, I'm converting the first three episodes. I'll test all three on my PC, on my PS2, and report back what GSpot tells me.
EDIT: Alright, the first one worked on the PS2 and PC. Here is a GSpot print screen:
Second one had the same problem as before, works with no fault on the PC, yet plays as an MP3 in SMS. It's interesting because it shows the video icon in SMS and it detects the srt file, but it still plays it as an MP3. GSpot info:
Third one worked fine, just like the first. GSpot says:
From what I can tell, they look about the same. So why won't that second episode work?

Got me. I don't have a clue. Oh wait, I'm just getting a clue. Dude I've got such a raging clue right now. Ooh, my clues pointing to the left now, let's follow it.....
In other words, I dunno.
@Z-Saber: ...I don't know also . Without actual clip a can't say a word about it ...
try using virtualdub, also most likely a bad encoding sesion, a driver or codec could have stalled/crashed or someone other common problem. Can the file be played on the pc if no, its screwed.
EDIT "Damm that is strange

But the problem with that is that I've reencoded it four times with the same result.
I'll upload a clip to rapidshare or some other uploading service if you guys can tell me how to split it into a smaller file.
EDIT: Well crap. I just tried a AVI Splitter. The splitting worked fine. I had a twenty second clip to upload. The video worked on my computer, and then it worked on SMS. So what's the deal?
