    I know this has been asked dozena of times. I googled it quite a few
    times and came out with zero useable answers.

    I have a DAC-100 DV<>analogue converter.

    I know editing apps (Avid and others) output video via FireWire.
    I'm looking for a freeware player that does the same to DivX files and

    Can anyone tell me about any ap that can do this? It's sort of driving
    me nuts.

    P.S. DVIO doesn't work for me. Tried it.

  2. Application that output through firewire are doing so using the DV codec
    standard. DivX files are not DV standard, therefore cannot be output with
    most available applications. Programs such as Canopus Edius will allow mixed
    standards on the timeline for output to the 1394 device without prior
    conversion. Otherwise, you will have to convert each clip you have to equal
    the DV standard .For NTSC that is 720x480 0.9 pixel, 29.97fps, 24bit color,
    48kHz stereo audio - for instance, the Microsoft DV codec.

    If your files are less than that frame ratio, color depth, etc. then you
    will see/hear artifacting from upconverting smaller resolutions and audio
    standards. A file with 15fps will only end up with each frame repeated to
    make it 30fps producing a jerky motion upon playback.

    Though not a player, per se, Scenealyzer Live is an inexpensive application
    that will output AVI via 1394/Firewire.
