allright, i think Moonshell isn't all its cracked up to be, the shell stands out in the fact it's kinda a pretty hollow shell, the controls aren't very obvious or intuitive, everytime you go into options you must reset the program, i can't figure out how to use the softvolume control, and i've spent some time exploring moonshell the help files (if there are any) are in a mess of piss poor engrish chinese and computer symbols, and all chinese program developers have to make their manuals with as little Enter key usage as possible, so expect to scroll the bar to the side and back everytime you read a line.... i liked the look of M3's built in media player, looked allot cleaner and simple with big fat buttons that indicate their functions with well known symbols. play stop pause scan back and forth, and the progress bar and volume. why can't moonshine be like that? but aside from that yeah, i think it's not perfect. but that's not my main concern, the DPG tools for moonshell are completely worthless, they only encode 4 formats which are very little in difference, and any computer can support, AVI WMV MPG DivX and such, Wheres the MP4 wheres the VOB support? wheres the more detailed options for encoding? wheres the instructions? the moonshell encoder tools suck, and the lack of MP4 really annoys me, because i have a PSP movie creator which rips movies into MP4 format, with many variable compression options, but i gotta pirate the new version since Vista won't run the 2005 version, and PQD are greedy and want people to pay again just to use the same program in Vista, the new version has nothing new about it whatsoever that i have seen in the trial version, so they can sit on a pole and slowly rotate on it. Does anybody know some good FREE alternate programs that work WELL that can support a broader array of formats to be encoded for DS playback? thank you. because the software for the GBA movie player supported almost every media format under the sun, even VOB (DVD file).
