Best Video App

Post by gsteruk »

Hey all,

Just wondered what everyone is using to play vids? i find the built in app pretty poor when it comes to scaling vids, stream video player seems to cope quite well - anyone else use anythin thats good?

cheers

thanks graham, thats good to know. can i ask, what output size do u specify? i seem to be having problems in that the video will play in a small size in the center of the screen, the videos actual size - but when i use the arrows to scale, it just looks awful - no matter which scaling option i choose. also what settings do u use for conversion?

thanks a lot graham

regards

hi, i use XILISOFT video converter ultimate 6...setting,s..... in profile dropdown, select PNP then archos mpeg4 (automatically select,s 800x400)....i,ve never had to use the scaling option since using program, full screen every time and like i said makes excellent use of the stock media player (and iv,e tried a few).....graham.

ps:- it,s even got an option to add subtitles :D
