    If you had read some of the posts above, maybe you would have seen that the software isn't really free. Pretty much everyone will be disappointed cause that.

    It's not just capable. It was designed to avoid the hassle of re-encoding media (or at least that was the plan).

    You're not exactly optimizing anything. If anything, you're degrading the feature you pretend to enhance.

    At least to anyone with half a brain.

    This was an awesome guide. Thank you for showing me how to conserve some space on my Micro SD card. Is there a way to boost the Audio on a video as I've noticed some movies are just too quiet. I know I could just use headphones but I'd like to know a solution if there is one.

    I was able to find divx converter by simply going to the bay and searching for "divx converter"

    RupeeClock, give SUPER another run?

    In the video section on he right, you can click the little O button for other options, in there you can adjust the audio level.

    I should definitely try and figure it out, it probably can out-put something just like the DivX converter, but it's just not so user friendly.
    All the more reason to make a guide though, it's free.

    This kinda defeats the purpose of the video player supporting all formats if you have to convert anyway.. You may as well convert to dpg and use moonshell.

    Nope, you're not getting it. But it's okay, I wasn't expecting you to do it anyway.

    The way I do it is as follows -

    Download ffmpeg (a command line video converter) and use the following command to convert almost every video format to a good format for the dstwo. the conversion is very quick too.


    ffmpeg -i "video name.flv" -f avi -s 256x144 -b 512k -bt 256k -vcodec libxvid -deinterlace -acodec libmp3lame -ar 32000 -ab 96k -ac 2 "output.avi"

    the above is for widescreen videos, for 4:3 ratio just change the 256x144 to 256x192

    the dstwo will play quite a lot of videos without converting them, but at its fastest, the dstwo is only 396mhz and has no specific hardware for decoding movies. It is far better to convert movies to a smaller format so that less power is used to decode them (the battery may last longer this way) and there is less frame skip or errors during playback.

    The DSTwo also lacks a way of making the video look smoother when downscaled, so downscaling it before-hand during a conversion will definitely make the video look much nicer, as well as the advantage of saving memory space.

    Super is just a front end to ffmpeg, so it should be capable of the same thing.

    I think only DivX converter plus is available these days, so the previous remark about the plus version maybe not converting below a min size that is too large for the DS might be a problem.

    Has anyone really tried ffmpeg vs. FormatFactory (using ffmpeg command line as shown in previous post) and compared?

    Has anyone tried DivX Converter (not free though) vs. either ffmpeg or FormatFactory?

    I'm trying to transfer a couple of .avi files 30fps from my Canon digital camera to the DSTwo but when I play them in Video Player it just goes to the first frame and stays there. I tried converting the video to divx and xvid and changing resolution but nothing changes. Any speculation what the problem is?

    yes they play fine.. i even did a codec check and it uses 'mjpeg' which i'm pretty sure dstwo supports. But like I said it would'nt work even after recompensing using different codecs. I don't know if canon puts some kind of special coding in the .avi to make things hard for me>?

    I used your settings for encoding with
    Pazera Free FLV to AVI Converter

    and it worked flawlessly. Now I can watch any youtube video on the dstwo

    Whats the point of converting isn't that the point of the DStwo video player? If you were going to convert then you could have done it to DPG format and use Moonshell.
