    Wouldn't YOU like to know?
    I do [​IMG]

    I like to encode my favorite YouTube vids into DPG. Sometimes I encode full movies from DVDs, but I do it mostly for my younger cousins. I still prefer to watch my movies on DVD/Blu-Ray.

    I did last year, for watching my favorite anime in class.
    Now, I have to take my laptop (I'm going to an IT school).
    So I'll just watch it on my top.

    I used to watch Amazing Spider-Man Animated Series, Batman Animated Series (the good one) & Justice League animated series plus various films I converted.

    And then I got a PDA.

    I convert/encode them my self and watch them on sakura. I think most of the videos have come off of youtube, etc.
    It's pretty hard to find what you are looking for pre-converted. that is, if they are even out there......

    I do. My DS is essentially an ipod video with games. I use moonshell for movies and songs.

    I use it as a movie player a lot......Even at home, I lay in bed and watch movies (mostly, I encode divX or DVDs and have my own collection of 6-7 DVDs full of encoded movies for M3)..

    I used to listen to music on it back in the day when I had a G6. Now I mean if I want to watch something that I download from the internet I'll watch it on my computer. I don't really bring my DS out of the house. much less use it anymore [​IMG]

    Nope. Never. Why would I want to watch shows I like on such a tiny tiny screen?

    Even my iPod touch I would never use to watch anything other than a trailer.

    If I want to watch something I'll watch it on my TV or monitor...

    Just coded the Pre-Election-Simpsons-Ep & My Name Is Earl S04E12 on Friday as I had to take a train ride for approx. 50 mins & I hate people, even more in trains, when they smell or talk crap etc. pp. So watching things is a good alternative for standing if you don't wanna sit next to some ugly Mofo eating his pizza in a completely crowded place like that train on a Friday. I use BatchDPG btw, NOT Super, and I am quite satisfied with the results as it's coding really fast!

    What converting software gives people the best results with viewing on M3 Sakura?

    I use BatchDPG and it works great with sakura.
    My settings for it are:

    Video:
    Framerate: 20 Width: 256 Bitrate: 386 Passes: 1
    Profile: Med Height: 192 Max bitrate: 512 Resizer: Spline 16

    Audio:
    Bitrate: 128 Samplerate: 32768 Mode: Joint stereo

    That works pretty well with sakura, and the audio is never out-of-sync.
    Although I haven't tried it with videos longer than about half and hour....

    The unofficial BatchDPG won't work for me. I haven't tried the official version though. I'm running Vista 64-bit version.

    I've got Vista Ultimate Sp1 64bit - BatchDPG works flawlessly here.

    I love having all 3 Futurama Movies on my DS for only ~700mb hehehe

    PS: Sportsmaniac i'm using BatchDPG 1.52 if that helps, with AviSynth 2.5 Final
