    Does the iPlayer video plugin for the Supercard DSTWO support .mp4 video files? If so, will it support a 480p video with AVC codec?

    nope the iplayer doesn't support mp4. I haven't seen an update for that thing in over a year.

    Mp4 is MPEG-4, and since it supports MPEG why not give it a try.

    MPEG-4 AVC (or MPEG-4 Part 10 or H.264) is not listed as a format that it supports.

    http://www.dsiplayer.com/faq.html

    The use of MPEG is this case is for mpeg files with extensions of MPG, not refering to MPEG as a class of MPEG-1, MPEG-2, MPEG-3 and MPEG-4.

    It is practically the same plugin.


    Neither support MP4, the DSTWO iPlayer plugin hasn't had an update in 3 years.

    unfortunately iplayer has much lower compatibility from what i expected. my 240p flv videos downloaded from youtube works fine. though 480p flv videos lag so much. i don't think it will be able to decode 480p AVC.

    it would be really great, if someone was interested in developing this. i can only hope.

    The Supercard team has been pretty quiet. I really do hope that they update the iPlayer plugin or someone shows interest in developing it.

    i have downloaded a few 240p .mp4 files from youtube. iplayer successfully played them after i renamed them to .avi. so file browser just doesn't recognize the .mp4 extension.
