I understand in a DVD Player you play DVD films. I know that in a DVD Player you can play data files such mp3's which are compressed music files but they ARE played as data. Now my question is ..Is there a DVD Player outhere which plays mpegs , avi, asf and other formats which are burned as data that the DVD if it exist can be played on??? The reason I ask this so all this nonsense of encoding lark ! can be thrown out of the window!!

The kiss brand is your best bet at the moment, which pays divx. There are other products on the way which will act as a media centre, ie stream files from a network server (the kiss has ethernet).

See http://www.kiss-technology.com/

You could download divx from the internet (ftp or peer-to-peer) onto your PC, then the kiss machine plays them over the network connection - no need to burn a DVD at all. But you still need things in divx format.

If you want to watch mpeg2 files (not DVD) on your tv, you either need to use tv out from your pc, or use a media box like hauppauges:

This also takes files over an ethernet connection from the PC disk.

And no larking about with encoding!

A little less analogue, and a lot more crap.

Seen a DivX at a friends house - worth da money as they play almost anything, including the dodgy multi-film DVDrs

Will try to get the make and model - was £82 if I remember correctly, but it was a year ago

no shahid, this machine doesnot connect to the internet, it does everything else, oh it also play dvd-rw and dvd+rw, so if you dont want to keep the film, rewrite the disk. and it costs £75 (ellion 520c)
