How to burn DivX to DVD disc and watch on DVD player?

"How to burn DivX to DVD to play in a DVD player? Basically, I want to create a 4 in 1 disc but I don't want to convert the files to DVD. I already have a DivX DVD player. Can I put these movies on a DVD-R and watch them on my DivX player, or do the discs strictly have to be CD-R's?"


Generally speaking, there are two kinds of situations in terms of burning DivX to DVD. If you have a DivX player with DivX logo on it, this will save you lots of energy. In this case, you can simply burn DivX file as a data disc, which will play in your DivX player. You can even view them via the USB if there is any. However, most ordinary DVD players don’t have the ability to read DivX directly. For those who want to watch DivX movies on normal DVD players, you need to create a Video DVD disc from DivX files.
