Re: Archos 48 H264 sync problem..help?

Just use MKV. It is just a container, everthing else can be the same. For your existing MP4 videos, remux to MKV, takes a minute or two.

Yes, MP4 sync was better before. They were trying to fix one sync problem so I guess they made some adjustment, but it caused problems with other files.

Re: Archos 48 H264 sync problem..help?

H264/AAC in MP4 has been oos on A5A for many firmwares. I guess A48 is same. I can't remember exactly what firmware the problem started but I think they tried to fix it and made it worse.

It will not be fixed because the devices are old.

Remux to MKV, sync is better.

Re: MKV Video Support -> where does the limitation lie?

Hi There, Like many folks I am interested in playing my video library as-is, without conversion. I have mainly 720p High profile videos. Can someone help me understand where the limitation lies? How can I figure out (without owning a Archos yet) which videos will work? - Does it depend on the resol...

Re: CNET tells readers to skip the Archos Gen 9 tablets!

The CNET review complains about viewing angles.

I thought that was something that was supposed to have been improved with the G9. Have the pulled another switcharoo? Put good LCD panels into the show models and then switched them with crap for the retail models?

Put your subtitle in the same folder as the video, and give it the same name.
EG:

>Avatar (folder)
--->Avatar.avi
--->Avatar.srt

Re: G9 Coming in October-November

Guys go check some previous Archos launches. They are always late compared to their initial estimates.

Even when they launch it will be a slow rollout. Just be patient.

Re: Hi, I am Craig from ARCHOS

Wrong, Archos sells upwards 1 million tablets in a year. The Touchpad dumping benefits Archos more than anyone else in the tablet industry, simply because it makes more users aware of the cheaper better value part of the market, which is exactly what Archos is known for. The loosers are those $499 ...

Re: Hi, I am Craig from ARCHOS

What i'd like to ask is, which market is more affected. HP is an american company so i'm assuming that most of that inventory is inside the US. We certainly don't see those tablets in quantity in asia. And since there aren't many other US manufacturers that produce tablets, it makes me wonder who a...

Re: Hi, I am Craig from ARCHOS

I never said it would saturate the market for tablets, and I never said I was referring to the market for the next x number of years. I am talking about right now, 2011 holiday season. A very important sales period for Archos. And I have said they will sell less than they would have sold otherwise. ...

Re: Hi, I am Craig from ARCHOS

Wrong. The $99 Touchpad is a great thing for Archos, now more people will wonder where the cheaper better value Android tablets are, and that is exactly what Archos represents on the market. The story will be: Wow! Arnova 7 G2 is just $149! Wow, Archos 70 Internet Tablet is just $199! And WoW, Arch...

Re: Hi, I am Craig from ARCHOS

$100 HP Touchpads are a disaster for Archos. I don't know how many have been blown out...tens of thousands? Either way that is a lot of people who were thinking about a tablet, but didn't want an expensive Apple price - ie pretty much Archos target market. Now these people have a tablet and probably...

Re: Question about Archos 5 IT GPS

The GPS is very hit & miss on the A5IT. Personally I think I have gotten a signal maybe twice in the whole time i've owned it.

I wouldn't buy any apps til you confirm that signal strength is good for your unit and area.

Re: BD rips produce multiple small files

If you mean the main movie itself (not the extras, intro, menus etc) is lots of m2ts, then it is probably a disc with branching or something. It doesnt really matter, just rip it correctly (use the runtime to make sure you rip the main movie) and Handbrake should recognize the movie using the Source...

TN Panel = no thanks. Isn't that the same that the Archos gen 8s use? Yep. One reason why I avoided Gen8 altogether. Screens with poor viewing angles are not suitable for a tablet that's going to be held at various angles, tilted, rotated etc. Gen9 should be better, if the Archos rep was correct re...
