I'm trying to get a TV with a Sony DVP-S560D CD/DVD Player going. They would like play some videos from the internet on it.

Will the Sony DVP-S560D play MP4 files, AVI files, video CDs or do these videos need to be transformed into a traditional DVD? The DVD player was probably built around the year 2005

No, I’m afraid it does not support any audio or video files natively. Aside from (MPEG-2) DVD videos, it only supports VCD (MPEG-1) and SVCD (MPEG-2), so you will need to convert your video files to one of those.
