|First, what format (DVD, Divx, etc.) was the movie in when you "recorded" it. Most standard DVD-players don't handle Divx (or other) formats and would need the movie to be converted to a standard DVD-format before being playable, and just downloading Divx wouldn't do the conversion---you'd need a specific program to do so.|
Second, what is the player that you're trying to play it on and is it Divx-certified?
