Hi folks.

I have been using VLC to convert recorded HDTV .ts files to a DivX format for playback on my DVD with some success. However, my Samsung Player does not allow me to scan forward or backward when the files are playing. Is this a feature of the conversion or a limitation of playing recoded files in the Div3/MP3?

Also if there is a better solution than VLC to transcode  i would appreciate your suggestion. Note that the codec formats of Handbrake is not compatible with my DVD player

I suspect it's a limitation of the player.

Why don't you convert them to Mpeg and make a standard dvd, then I am sure you will be able to insert chapters or at least fast forward etc.

Matt.

I had an old samsung dvd player that did that. Absolutly useless IMO - was the one that did SACD and DVD-A formats.

Just get a cheapie player from JB etc to use for divx IMO.
