    i'm using BatchDPG to convert videos for ds and then watch them with moonshell. Is there any way to get video on two screens. Like same video on both screens or like wide screen with two screens? : D
    thanks in advance.

    The DS doesn't have the power to do that, and I don't think there are any programs that attempt it

    I don't know why you want the same movie on both screens, mayby you like that kind of thing . .

    I'm sure the DS will be able to handle a stretched image over both screens!

    Yea it's not very usefull to have one video on 2 screens, but it would be just fun... don't ask why. Just random reasons why i even asked about it.
    But ds should handle streched video/something similar. there's one on the metroid hunters intro. Shame that it seems that there aren't program for that.
    Atleast i can wait if other people know more. [​IMG]

    The DS does have the power to do it, as seen in Metroid Prime: Hunters. The trouble is those videos are made in a proprietary format, and the codec isn't available to us filthy pirates (or legitimate developers either, sadly). As for dpg, running the same image on both screens would be possible, but that feature isn't really in demand, so I doubt it will be implemented that soon.

    EDIT: MP:H; The OP beat me to it [​IMG]

    Yea, Hunters uses the kick ass Act Imagine codec, but those videos are specially made for the ds, unlike a TV show or something. They are extremely optimized, and probably only run at 15FPS (when a video is on both screens)

    The integrated Moonshell of M3 SD can do that. It can even mirror the video on the top screen.
