Will HD Media Player WDAVN00 play Cineform AVI files

Sorry to re-post. Well... sort of. This question is buried at the bottom of my "Don't have blu-ray post. So I thought I would just make a new topic.

Here goes. This is a long shot. Do you think the WDAVN00 media player would playback Cineform AVI files? My guess is that it would not recognize them.

WD TV HD Media Player ( WDAVN00 )

Thanks

No ... it won't have the necessary decoder. (Also, it's a USB connection, which would probably be a limiting factor, at least for high-bitrate CFHD avis).

That said, I have a TviX which is the same idea, just with an internal drive. I convert my CFHD avis to mt2 or wmv and it plays those great! I love it!

I purchased a WDAVN00 today and just tried it out. WOW... I love it. I kinda suspected that the Cineform AVI's were a dream. But... It played all my other files great. I really like it.

Thanks for the response.

Do you know if it will play ISO files? I have taken my home movies, made into DVD's,
and rather than burn media, have made them all into iso outputs from encore. This allows me to burn media later if I want. I use a player on my computer to play these iso DVD's, but I would like to get the computer out of the loop to hook up to my TV.

I'm not sure about the ISO files. My guess is no. I'll look for an ISO file and give it a try.
