tetsujin070561: okonomiyagi: This version of Battle Rice is from Pony Canyon VHS tapes, an official product of Fuji TV. So, it has been seen outside Japan, but not on USA television.

Man Alive!: The presentation on Iron Chef Thailand is really slick! The set, graphics, and music are all fantastic.

okonomiyagi: Looks like Kitchen Stadium Thailand got a pretty sweet makeover. The not-so-sweet stuff: they've adopted the new American format. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eNEN5ZwrpNk

Iron Chef Mandy: That's the thread. I first assumed that didn't fly with staff...

herringchoker: ICM - If you're referring to the post about Todd English getting arrested, I remember seeing it. But it seems to be gone now...very odd.

XviD codecs in avi files do NOT play in a DivX Certified DVD player, in most cases (I think it really depends on when and how the file was encoded as XviD, but I'm not sure yet.). I have a lot of anime, nearly all are XviD. I have to convert them into DivX Home Theater profile to get them to play. The DVD player recognizes the files otherwise but say that it can't open them. It's really annoying. I have a LOT of anime. I have to convert and re-burn a bunch of stuff. It's a long term project.
My friend's DVD player is a small hand held portable player with a built in screen. It's not DivX certified or ultra certified, I was wrong about that. But it does play nearly all XviD encoded avi files. It's more versatile and forgiving than mine. There are a few exceptions, we haven't quite figured out what the difference in encoding is yet.
Most DVD players will NOT play avi or divx files. They aren't programmed to do so. You have to find one that advertises itself as being able to play avi and/or divx files.
MA, you could go to Stage6 and save every single video file there as a .avi file instead of a .divx. All you have to do is change the name when you are saving them, or even after they have completed downloading to your computer. I do this. I will save as "Battle____.avi" instead of using the "12345.divx" file name it gives you. After that, you can burn them to DVD, but I don't know if your DVD player would play them.
Some DVD burning software, Toast, for instance, can convert a avi or divx file into DVD vob, ifo, and bup files in their respective Video_TS and Audio_TS folders and encode the avi file into an actual DVD, including menus. Compression is lost though, so instead of 10-12 Iron Chef eps in divx or avi format , you get 2, maybe 3, IC battles instead (which is what you would most likely get on a commercially encoded DVD). Such a DVD will play in any DVD player.
Okay- so saving the file as an .avi will do the trick? A simple renaming... I can't believe I never thought of that myself. I'm used to burning and playing .avi files, and even more used to the way the files get much bigger when my DVD burning program goes to put them on the disc. I don't think my program knows how to burn .divx, but it knows how to burn .avi encoded IN divx or xvid. Thanks for the help, eiko!
I thought I'd give an update on the new video site.
The plan right now is to go live with it on February 1st.
We have about 85 full episodes and 20 videos in Beyond Kitchen Stadium uploaded right now. I'd like to have around 100 up by the time we open the doors. Eventually all of the episodes we have (170-ish) will be available for download.
There will be a database of episodes. When you choose an episode, you have the choice of clicking "Download File" or "Watch Video." The watch video link opens a new page with an divx web player, like on stage6.
We won't have our own forum, so we will gladly link to this one as the place to go for Iron Chef discussion.
It looks like we jumped ship and started our own video site at just the right time. There was an announcement today that Stage6 will be shutting down February 28th. We are well on our way to being the only place on the internet for viewing full episodes of Iron Chef. (I know there are a lot of episodes on Youtube, but they are in parts and in .flv)
