    Okay MPlayer is now rocking on the wii, but most other consoles have a thread relating to the best encoding profile to use for bitrates, dimensions etc etc. So I thought lets get one going on here. Does anyone have any thoughts ?

    Duh ! I know about the different media players... What I was expecting other than some retarded response was getting everyone involved in working out what the best encoder settings would be to achieve the best video/audio quality for viewing using any of the media players...

    But, I'll stick to posting over at max - as at least they understand the concept of a question...

    PS, Just for anyone who might be interested h264 does not play well on the wii, I guess it just doesnt have enough raw power to decode in realtime whereas most xvid/divx seem okay but you need to be careful with the bitrates...

    if that's the way you feel, use your Xbox or PC media centre and forget the wii...

    So GeeXbox has no problem playing h264 encoded movies at high bitrates or am I a complete imbecile and missing your point.

    Do you not ever re-encode movies to fit the best your player can produce ?

    Yes I can play movies no problem for example the dmd version of Spiderwick plays no problem but it falls well short of being acceptable whereas Bolt which I watched today, and re-encoded from an h264 source to xvid with a special blend of settings, looked totally awesome on my LCD in the front room...

    All I wanted from this thread was other peoples experience and possibly some discussion of their settings so that we could go about working out what is the best for everybody - still I think I'll keep my findings to myself instead...

    hmm, no i never need to encode any movies, not many people have had problems, it's easier to test yourself, as not-one mentions this sort of stuff on here im afraid...
