    I've been pretty happy with DSvideo. I have never liked moonshell.

    I've only ever had this problem with versions before 2.0. Ever since Moonshell 2, I have not had any corruption due to Moonshell.

    [​IMG] Why is everyone hating moonshell 2 for that f*cking DiskCheck?! Just turn off that damn thing and no reformatting your card for good.

    I have been using DSvideo for a little while now. I basically use it for my 6 year old so he has some movies as well as games to keep him occupied on long trips. So far I have only encoded a few animated movies and the results have been very good and the clean interface of the program enables my lad to use it without problems.

    Now things were good up until the other day when I tried to encoded a live action movie. The results were terrible it kept blurring out in places and was as jumpy as hell. My previous vids had turned out ok. I then tried another movie and the results were terrible as well.

    So...... Looks as if I will be ditching DSvideo in favour of something else

    I have looked at "DSM play" and "tuna_vids." From what I can tell DSM is excellent but the encoded file size is ridiculous and tuna_vids has a low FPS like dsvideo.

    I would rather use dpg and moonshell but the moonshell interface is not exactly intuitive for a 6 year old. I wish there was a standalone dpg player.

    Well, it could sort of be made pretty intuitive for a 6 year old (provided he doesn't get to the menu or submenu). You just have to go over to your dpg folder and then lock the folder navigation so he can't leave from that folder. Then while converting just choose the thumbnail image (if you actually care about that). There isn't very much different from MS2's video player versus DSVideo GUI-wise.

    Just loaded up moonshell. It is not as bad as I remembered. I'm just encoding a vid now so I will see how it goes. I also saw a getyoutube button on the dpgenc screen which looks interesting.

    I am thinking of going the MAIO option but unsure as the boy still likes using dscovered. I might set up MAIO and see what he thinks. I can always leave DScovered on as an NDS if he wants to use it. Not sure if the autorun and DScovered loaders will still work with MAIO.

    This is my solution even before you start you can turn it off but I forgot how.

    Does anyone know of a good utility to crop a 1:2.35 aspect? It looks a bit ridiculous on the tiny DS screen. DPGenc does not seem to autocrop the file unless I'm missing something. There is an Aspect ratio option but I think this is just to tell it what the source is.

    Edit: Sorry if I have hijacked this thread. I don't like starting new threads unless I have to.

    Edit2: Using super to encode seems to be working better, I have more control over the output and it encodes FLV realy well.

    In ms2 just hit start or select (forget which one lol} and look for the gui options menu. Then there is an option there to turn off disk check without having to manually edit the ini. Just a tip.
