Why Can't Play AVI on DVD Player?

In fact, whether the DVD players play AVI videos or not, it depends on the DVD player model, the AVI video codec or the AVI video resolution/size, here are some few reasons:

Majority of DVD players only accept MPEG-2 in a standard VOB format. As such, they do not have the capacity to play DVDs that contain AVI. However, some of the latest DVD models have the capacity to play AVI files provided that the AVI file is further encoded with DivX: not so simple, right.

All standard DVD accept videos that conform to a certain resolution and BVOP settings. For instance, a majority of DVD players limit import to a resolution of 720 by 756 or 720 by 480. AVI video resolution is usually greater than this and as such, a majority of DVD players do not have the capacity to play AVI files.

Newer models of DVD players can be able to play AVI files on one and only one condition, the AVI file has to be further encoded with another codec such as Xvid, Divx, WMV and MPEG-1 just to name a few. As such, a pure AVI file will not be able to play on any DVD.
