avh-x5650bt_rc_rd_ri_green_left_b2When I received my Pioneer AVH-X5650BT 2DIN player, I was struggling to play any video files from any media. In the product manual it provide very brief information on the supported video format. I am very frustrated when I always get “unplayable file” error message. I’m surprised that actually there’re few limitations and requirements for the player to recognized the video files.

Rule of Thumb

  • Maximum height cannot exceed 404pixels or else you will get “resolution not supported”.
  • Some user reported maximum resolution is 720×576. I haven’t tried this.
  • Maximum total bitrate must not exceed 1000kbps.
  • Avoid underscore in filename.

Converting your video files

Download DivX video converter and install it.
Load your video files that need to be converted, and select “HD 720p” profile.
divx profile
Modify resolution, click maintain aspect ratio and adjust the height to 404.
Keep an eye to the Total bitrate, make sure it does not exceed 1000kbps. You can tune the value by adjusting the video bitrate.

Save Presets so that you can load the profile in the future.
