    I know, I know guys be easy [​IMG] but I went to a buddies house to check out his new Denon 3801 and noticed that he still had about 25 or so DIVX discs. He had at one time a Panasonic player that played them but of course we all know what happened to DIVX. His player died too a while back. I suppose there is no outside chance that these can be played on anything anymore and are coasters. Right? It would be cool to watch the Ghost and the Darkness (?). I don't know that this is on dvd yet....

    I believe that DIVX had some sort of compensation plan for people who had been suckered into buying their product, back when it was announced they were going under. Unfortunately, I think your friend is about a year too late to take advantage of it.

    The only options is to turn them into coasters or Christmas tree ornaments. I got four DIVX discs for free from a guy I know and proudly turned them into coasters by getting some peel-and-stick felt pads at Wal-Mart.

    No, I'm not kidding.

    Surely no self-respecting proud DVD owner would dare to desecrate their Christmas tree with DIVX discs! Coasters, on the other hand, ...[​IMG]

    If you've ever had the perverse desire to watch things meltdown in a microwave, here's a great chance to do so. [​IMG]

    I've heard you can damage your microwave by putting anything metal in it, besides putting a DIVX disc in it might end up charging your credit card every time you eat [​IMG]
    Check out the onscreen message when you play these on a DVD player without "The Divx Feature" though.
