Using AVI files

Via the Studio / Pinnacle version 11.1 package I made several avi files.

I saved them as avi. and not mpg1 or 2 or 4. Filesize is between 15 and 20 Gigabyte

Windows media player has no problem at all with it. My just bought WD TV does have a problem with it.

My WD TV Media Player states it does not recognise this format and advises to consult the manual , which I did but can not figure out why not

Can any-one advice how to solve this.

You have probably encoded them with something that hardware like WDTV cannot play.

Look at the file with mediainfo and tell us what it says.
