    Yes, just convert it to dpg like any other video.

    Your best bet is using BatchDPG to convert to .dpg -- that is if you care for highest possible quality, imo a must when watching movies on a tiny screen.

    R4 uses MoonShell to play movies, just like most other flashcards.

    Convert to .dpg with BatchDPG, and then play with Moonshell.

    Yes. Some flashcards have a built-in version of Moonshell, but I'd suggest you download the latest version, DLDI-patch it, and play .dpg on that. Some of these built-in versions are a bit iffy.

    Perhaps you should install AviSynth and CCCP and try again. If you still get the same message, doing what the error message tells you to do is usually a good idea.

    Over there.
    You can also use dpgtools included in Moonshell to convert.

    Do you have original r4 box. Turn it to side and you can see "game movie music". So it does play movies
