If they get MKV and AVI working good enough, then I want one.
Most my vids are MKV.
Well of course the MKV container works (even though you have to load them through the Files menu). It's the video codec that it can have issues with. h264 doesn't play very well, but codecs like XviD work fine inside MKV just as I showed in the video. Audio track switching and soft subs don't work though.
Sweet. Ill be getting one of these since im tired of having to convert all of my video files to dpg and dsm. Not to mention how fucking huge the filesize of those are -.- Im not to worried about it not being able to play ROMs though. They did a great job!
I think I'm getting one, just to be able to say that I can play lot's of mediaformats on my DS.
And I may eventually use it when going somewhere in a car/bus/train.
looks great...but idk if i am going to watch movies on a dsi..who knows. Ill wait for a full review to come out.
dpg works for me even if the compression is a bit weak
Another opportunity this cart opens up:
Possibly a web browser for DS that isn't just faster, but may also include flash support. Its just an idea, but until we get specs of the hardware used, I don't want to make any assumptions.
quite impressing...but i prefer watching videos on my pc...my ds is for playing games and some music....
I have a question.
What does the homebrew in the menu section do?
I can't find anywhere that lists what it does.
The team is ignoring me...
Well, I'll definitely pay close attention to this!
sweet it looks cool and nice
in the youtube movie you see great quality movies.
i think this will become of use if i go to vacation
Doesn't matter. It will get cheaper when it is coming from more than one source manufacturer regardless of the price point.
This is a good idea actually, but the video still isn't smooth enough for me. It seems only marginally faster than the best
I've seen under Moonshell2. And that it can't do h.264 or even mkv is an even bigger letdown IMO.
Its a good idea to put a powerful chip into the DS to get better features (Heh...an idea stolen right from the glory days of the SNES carts' add-in chips ) but unless these features are primarily geared toward gaming (i.e. getting better emulation support and more powerful homebrew running) its really only a gimmick.
If I wanted video in a small device I'd get a PMP (A Cowon A3 or O2, etc.). Cowons even support mkv files and subtitles (ACK!, but no h.264!) and have a Comic book reader of sorts (At least the O2 does).
I'd love to see a new flashcart (One that *does* play roms) with an even more powerful processor (If possible...how much extra juice does the DS's powersupply have to play with?) and more ram than what this one has though. As for my next gaming device, I'm just gaga over the Pandora. It has a ways to go, but it just blows everything else away so far in raw potential. It should even be able to do h.264 and flash without any problems.
I'm sticking with my DS Lite, Moonshell2 and my CyclosDS until then I think (If I don't splurge for a PMP first!).
Actually if it does support flv, rmvb, avi, mp4, i'm alright with that
Sounds great. I may wait for an update or two before buying though.
where is it sold @?
Its not yet.
I will probably pick one up. Homebrew, and media...that's all I would want a flash cart for...seriously.
Any idea as to what the price will be?
expensive than all DSi flashcart
until this gets a rom loader, it is pretty useless. but to be honest I never saw the point in watching movies on such a tiny screen anyway.
well, if my memory serves correctly, it uses an onboard FPGA, which are both quite expensive and power hungry. So I wouldn't hold up much hopes for price or battery life if I were you.
