    Reading the article kind of answers the question you are asking... the system is capable of rendering the video, as long as you have a compatible cartridge for codec support. The article is speaking about an new software update for the Play-yan cart. So I'm guessing it will be a few months before the cart manufactures reverse engineer the same support.

    It really depends on whether Moonshell is updated to have this feature, since R4 just packs in Moonshell.

    AAC is supported (which is normally what goes in the mp4 (sometimes given the extension m4a) audio files) in its raw form in moonshell and some other players.

    MP4 for video can be all manner of things but it is usually (anything else tends to appear in AVI, OGG, MKV or something even worse like quicktime/real that I have seen) AVC aka H264 video which is a bit beyond the DS. On the other hand someone (as I recall it was the person behind the DPG (amongst other things) encoder EZBuilder that done it) ported a version of xvid although nobody has picked up and ran with it yet (no audio for one). Search through the homebrew news or search gbadev if your are curious.

    a homebrew app that played mp4 files came out 4-5 months ago, however it had no sound.

    What I cant wait for is a flash player for DS, think of the possibilitys.?

    From my understanding, yes there is.
