no Moonshell DOESN'T have better video playback But, Moonshell2 Does especially if encoded right with NEW converter included in the stable release My videos have no artifacts no skips no glitches and I can skip to any part of a movie without any hiccups(the Iplayer can't keep the voices synced "at least not from what shaun showed!" . The sound is plenty loud even without headphones or artificial volume boost. plus the size is usually reduced by over half after conversion( which is much faster with the new version) and Moonshell2 has per Video auto bookmarks all done in the background. Lets not forget that Moonshell2 has amazing Audio functions like displaying album covers while playing Music along with ID3tags. Any way I could go on and on About the Advantages of Moonshell 2 V.S. i Player, But you are right I don't know all the functions. After all this is apparently just a beta version of the final software they want our Criticism here it is. Honestly I'm waiting for the Announcement that the Hardware and software is open source so Homebrew can Make use of it because from what I've heard and seen this cart is for people who don't like to convert videos and unless I see otherwise I'll Stick with my AceKard2i and moonshell2.
