I am a recent purchaser of the SL-6000. Very cool product. However, I am trying to run video on it in wmv, avi, or mov format and the player installed on it appears to run ony mpeg-1.

Does anyone know of a player that will play these files? I tried kino but it does not function on the 6000.

Any help would be appreciated smile.gif

I've had some great success with some recent Futurama episodes.

These were already in DivX .avi when I reencoded them for the 6k, but I'd think you could start from any type of file.

Using Quicktime 7, I went into "Movie Properties," selected the video track, and rotated clockwise using the curved arrow button. Simple, though this didn't work for me using the same process in Quicktime 6.

I then exported the file using the latest DivX codec. 1:1 ratio, 540x480 (or that ballpark), 15fps, 450kbps, Better Quality, 2-pass encoding, with an MP3 audio track @ 64kbps/mono. That gave me an 80MB file of a 20-minute episode that played very, very well, though it still chokes a bit during the title sequence (blazingly fast, if you know Futurama). I'm sure by adjusting the keyframe and modulation sliders, I could tweak a bit more performance out of it.

I'm using the bleeding-edge version of zplayer (which trumps Kino), and using the following mplayer settings: -really-quiet -framedrop -cache 2048 -vo fbdev -fs

In any case, this gets a bit more use out of the 6k's beautiful screen, and has dazzled some casual onlookers.

Thanks for the heads up. The latest zplayer do perform much better then Kino and I love the black background. regarding the options
-really-quite: I didn't use this since I'm not lauching it from console
-framedrop = select drop frame "normal"
-cache 2048: used
-vo fbdev: I don't think this is necessary. If you click "About", it shows the ZPlayer selects fbdev as default for 6k
-fs: this is really nice - centers my movie

It plays my 1.5hr movie (478MB, xvid, 608x320, 12fps, stero) pretty well from my newly acquired 8GB Seagate microdrive (except for a fast dancing sequence, the vedio frame can't keep up). I can upload a clip later. I'm interested to see the performance on other roms (cacko, pdaX, and gulhem) and using fast kernel.
