    This ain't 4chan. Read the moonshell guide, its still the best method available.

    Try this Moonshell guide. I've always found it to be a very excellent resource.

    Keep in mind that Moonshell itself hasn't been updated in a year, so a year-old guide IS the most current info available.

    Well if you really don't like to use MoonShell keep in mind that their are always alternatives such as DSVideo and Tuna-Vids. Both of which are extremely nicely made, however MoonShell still stands as the best media player for the DS.

    DSVideo
    Tuna-Vids

    If your flash cart has built-in DPG playback capabilities then it's better to use that rather than use moonshell because moonshell doesn't give you the same quality from my experience

    I am pretty sure those max out at like 12 fps which is nowhere near as good as dpg

    Yeah i went through this same dilemma about a week or so ago.

    DSM: files to big 142megs=1.4gigs didnt even test(only have a 1gig card)
    DSV: quality is kinda an issue here and also vids can only converted from avi without problems
    tuna-vids: where as you can manually put it in sync sometimes it get so out of sync the you have to restart the vids all over
    DPG: only problem ive come to find is that the search tool stinks

    i went with DPG and i use SUPER to convert my vids. Now i only have and ninjapass to test this so if the results are different on a different card i would not know.

    Tuna-viDS can achieve higher framerates if the video size isn't the full 256x192 resolution. I've used 15 fps with no problems for a widescreen movie I converted, and that was with a rather high bitrate selected.

    I use the full Sakura firmware (I have an M3), but it is definitely the best looking - I would use the DLDI version of Sakura instead of moonshell.

    I use Super to convert the videos; if I am converting a DVD then Dvd decrypter to get a single VOB file and then Super to convert that to DPG (which is the best format)

    Yes, though BatchDPG is a good program for converting DPG files. Most people tend to use SUPER just because of its ease of use. Plus it can convert a lot of video formats to DPG so its a lot more convenient.
