what usually works for me is, i cut the movie in half, and burn it onto 2 discs, this always helps, because instead of the ps2 haveing to play 2 hrs of DIVX at once, it can play 1 then have a break and start again. The reasoning for this is, because i noticied areoun 1-1.5 hrs the divx would start to skip/pause and even freeze. So i tryed lowering the bitrate, it worked for a bit longer, then i just cut the movie in half, and worked perfect wit orig bitrate, only bad part is u gotta waste 2 cds on one divx
but also use GOOD media, because the ps2 is constantly streaming from the cd.
cheers m8, hope this helps
