Re: windows media drm

Do the Gen8 tablets support WMDRM? I am interested in checking out audiobooks from my local library and if you get these digitally most of the time they are DRM'd WMA files. I know Android itself does not support this but since the Archos devices have a "media player" heritage, Archos may offer thi...

Re: Cinema plugin causing problems with videos

Here's a sample of a video that will not work. It has troubling decoding the video, but would previously have worked without the cinema media plugin. sample.mkv - 50.1 Mb that file is H264 High Profile, level 5.1 which is way beyond the specs of what we support (3.1). We do play most of 4.1 stream ...

Re: Any way to watch videos without dock/menu?

Ah, I have been using VPlayer since they want $40 for the cinema plugin to watch any hd videos on my player. So, that is probably the issue. I wonder if that player will integrate a full screen feature. I was a little taken aback when I realized that tiny plugin just to view HD was so bloody expens...

Re: HD video playback 1280x720 60p???

This seems to be an issue on my 43 with the 2.1.04 firmware and I wanted to see if other people with other models were having the same issues. I recorded some video from a camera that uses h.264 video and AAC audio with .mp4 wrapper, pretty standard these days for consumer cameras. Resolution is 12...

Re: Cinema plugin causing problems with videos

I recently bought an A43, and I'm really liking the device so far. I tested a few anime that ran at 720p, and it worked perfectly. Then I bought the Cinema plugin, but now 720p video that used to work have green blocky artifacts after about 5 seconds of watching. Video encoded at a lower bitrate se...

Re: Archos 70, Meego & Windows 7

The lesson here is that there are a lot of deep machine code hacks to x86 in Windows that make it near impossible to port. Even if it did run it is a hog. I would not hold out hope of this working any time soon. I would say by the next gen of ARM chips it will be possible to run Windows in a virtua...

Indeed the duration only shows as 2 hours 30(ish) minutes - the A5 shows the correct >4 hours d...
