    [​IMG] Nintendo DSi playing various movie formats?
    Mysterious video appears!
    A mysterious video that has appeared on Youtube appears to show a Nintendo DSi with Moonshell playing various movie formats directly without the apparent need to convert them to DPG or similar beforehand.

    The Youtube video, uploaded by an unknown individual shows a DSi playing both .avi (supposedly DivX/Xvid), Realmedia and Windows Media Video formats.


    Real or hoax? What's your opinion?

    *Update*: I've just been confirmed by a reliable source (who wishes to remain anonymous) that this is not a hoax and is currently a WIP. It is a new slot1 card that will be announced shortly! Unfortunately we're not able to divulge any more information! But we'll remain sceptical until we have the product in our hands to test for ourselves.

    IMO hoax until we can see what buttons hes pressing or if he is running a .dpg of this which is possible (I think?). With that said I don't know how that is possible without using dsi mode.

    Fake, fake and I'm guessing total fake, there not a chance or it would of been done by now.

    1: no one has hacked the DSi yet so unless it a real Nintendo card made to do so, there not a chance that the DSi would have the power in DS mode.

    2: they say avi, wav and so on what if there sized DPG with Avi or wav at the end and a set up were the .Dpg is not shown
    X.avi.dpg
    could look like x.avi

    and
    3. no matter what they would of had to of been resized so even if it was real conversion was need to a lower size to fit on the screen.

    4. We don't see a flash card and it never shows moonshell 1 or 2 logos any ware.

    Fake.
    WMV hardly works properly on anything but Windows, and definitely not on the DSi.
    I doubt the DSi is powerful enough to play it anyway.

    Fake, it's just renamed .dpg videos..

    Those video formats are too big and too complex for current possibilities that homebrew applications offer on DSi.

    There is a possibility that DSi mode was hacked, but I highly doubt that first think that someone would do after hacking DSi mode, is video playback..

    My guess would be a homebrew game to show what can be done with it would be first, Dpg is perfect for the DS.

    Its not moonshell or dpg looks like some dsvideo or palib video crap. Notice the gui looks nothing like moonshell 1 or 2.

    I agree with everyone who believes it is fake.

    The "wow" sounds a bit sarcastic to me.

    IMO the doubtful part of the video is that the movies load extremely fast for DS capabilities. Even on Wii it takes longer to load videos ... so I doubt this is real (i guess dpg can load that fast but you know, this one's optimized for it ...)

    But to play those formats you should be first to resize the vids or not?

    Yeah. RMVB and WMV are relatively closed formats... and heavily compressed. To my knowledge the only thing the DSi has over the DS is 32MB RAM vs 4MB. I doubt any video playback routines can be assisted by the camera hardware to pull off the decompression in real-time.
    Maybe, just maybe, if this is true, just the loading screen is hoaxed, the whole thing is put into RAM and some of it is done--wait. That's starting to sound like nonsense.
    Don't believe it.

    Well, the processor is also about twice as fast. But...to my knowledge, nobody has actually hacked DSi mode yet, am I right?

    This is fake. Also note that they are _avi and _wmv.

    Dunno about the rmvb but its possible to hide extensions.

    100% Fake.
