    I don't think it would be really hard to have moonshell view a picture and a short song file at the same time and sync them

    This is so far down on the list of things Moonshell needs. Seems pretty damn pointless.

    That was one of the least funny Mac vs PC spoofs I've ever seen.

    moonshell can show pictures, moonshell can play music. Currently, moonshell can only run one at a time. If someone devised a way to play both at once, it would take relatively little coding effort and would allow people to share the half million ytmnds out there when they don't have their computer readily accessible.. troll much?

    First "just needs to figure out how to do pictures and audio together" I hear there is this amazing new invention called film.

    I am boring bastard and have only been there when linked by others. I have yet to be impressed but then making generic rapper 45 or was it 46 appear to sing over a computer game/anime/film soundtrack is perhaps and acquired taste.

    Techincal detail
    It seems 90% of the "ytmnds" are flash with some form of audio backing.
    Assuming most of the flash is not the scripting language but little more than a glorified slideshow then requirements drop a bit (not much though0

    Audio seems to be quicktime/mp3 or something fairly low demand. Still not quite within the realm of the DS though (assuming simultaneous real time decoding or multiple streams).

    This being said there is a primitive flash viewer available:

    Perhaps Urza lacks tact in this matter (something I can not really find fault with) but I quite assure you it takes a lot to hold back.

    Download it and convert it to an AVI or whatever, then convert it to a DPG. You can then watch it as a vid in Moonshell.....with sound AND pictures. [​IMG]

    From my understanding, most ytmnds are a gif (animated) or jpg image and a music file, usually an mp3 playing at the same time. To help sync, there is sometimes a loader (probably the flash you are thinking of) as browsers will play whichever they load first, first. Before there were direct links to the picture and music files, I would just nab them from the source code of the page. Correct me if i'm wrong.

    edit: I guess I'll just use WMM to convert them to movies

    dude, if you want a freking mediaplayer that plays music and has image sync at the same time, just buy an Mp4 :\
    NDS was made for running games, not for home cinema...

    I have an mp4 player but it cant open an image and music at the same time, so it isn't synced
