    my main machine is a mac a dual g5 tower and i find there are no dpg converters for osx
    is there any way to convert the dpg's on a mac?
    i have heard there mpeg-1 but would regular mpeg1 work, i took a sample dpg and changed the extension to mpg on my mac and it played fine so i assume its similar or identical
    if they are identical why are they called dpg why not leave it alone?
    also can it play any other format avi,divx,xvid ect. or preferably mpeg4 or h.264
    if not is it possible for someone to make a player or port mplayer,vlc or some other open sourced option and if so is it in the works by anyone?
    if there is no solution i can use the media center pc but its in the living room and its a general annoyance to do that
    thanks any info is appreciated

    i'd say dpg would have different header with regular mpeg1... but

    just give it a go.. if it doesnt work, it doesnt work... there always parallels, vmware, etc to convert into dpg...

    Reading a dpg doesn't work on my PC, with MPC I only get audio and with VLC, nada. Must be something in the header like kutis said.

    I've already tried playing a video converted by mencoder (the same tool dpgenc uses), with the same switches and all, but MoonShell wouldn't read it.

    It's a shame, but I guess there must be an explanation for all this somewhere in the japanese author's website.

    btw: you have to have some codecs installed (avi synth)
    and when you resize it, choose the max for the width and the Height
