I question the point of that as well.
Because the DS has a tiny screen and crappy sound. You'd be better off grabbing a cheap MP3 player.
Personally, videos on the ds is a gimmick which lasts for 5 minutes. I do not find it enjoyable watching videos on the small screen. Listening to music is understandable but if i see someone listening to music on their ds, I will LOL at them.
I will always prefer a bunch of dedicated devices over one device which does everything at second-rate.
lol dude. I use my DSL for vids and music heaps.
nothing wrong with the screen; 256x192 res isn't bad and it fits all those 4:3 aspect vids nicely.
Music isn' great but hell, i dont feel like buying an mp3 player (my old one broke ages ago).
Not to mention since i have three flashcarts right now (soon to be 4), i may aswell use them to the max.
I used headphones and it sounded good.
EDIT: As OSW said im getting my second flash cart and a 4gb (maybe 8 if i can find one) SDHC card i might aswell use them for what i wanted.
EDIT 2: Nevermind
Yes, the iPod Video has a 2.5inch screen compared to DS' 3 inch, however the iPod has a higher resolution. Even I can't stand watching videos on the iPod for more than 5 minutes.
The Creative Zen Vision W has a 4.3inch screen.
Ah okay ill edit my post so this thread doesn't fill up people proving me wrong. Thanks.
If you wanted, instead of getting an ipod you could get one of the other alternatives.
Example: Meizu M6 (that's the one I have)
Can do Xvid/Divx video 320x240 @ 20fps with MP3 audio. I can transcode video downloaded from the internet in under 10 minutes with this setup and there is virtually no video quality loss. It does skip periodically but I blame that on the unit playing catch up because I just dropped 4 or 10 frames (depending on original encoding) out of every second during the transcoding process.
I use headphones when listening to music on my DS so I already have myself an Mp3 player there. And as for the 'tiny' screen it's good enough for when your waiting for your doctors appointment in 4hrs time!
is it quicker and easier to convert videos to psp format?
because i'm thinking of buying one.
kinda off topic.
What's SDHC? lol
Stands for Secure Digital High Capacity.
i think he was joking
If he wasn't joking, yes, SDHC=Secure Digital High Capacity (lewislite said already).
MicroSDHC cards can hold 4gb+, while regular microSD's are only 2gb and less.
I suggest going to another clinic. XP
I do use my DS for music but it isn't much that I need SDHC right now.
You shoulda seen what I posted before I edited it lol
I wasn't joking, am new the whole R4 thing and I was just wondering was it was. Thanks for the reply. ;D
So, what ever happened to this?
Nothing. There's still no update on this.
IMO that's a good thing
