I have managed to get mplayer working with 640x480 videos - smoothly.
You still need to re-encode your old videos though, because they need to be encoded sideways.
Eg.
- Download pocketdivxencoder (free)
- set device type to the 640x480 E800
- in advanced options set orientation so that the pda is rotated to the left on its side (2 clicks)
- Set desired video quality options and encode

Now copy the video to your zaurus and type (works best outside of X11):

# mplayer -vo fbdev -fb /dev/fb0 yourvideofile.avi

and there you have it. It should play roughly full speed. Let me know if this works well with your videos and if you have any more tips.

Also, isnt /dev/fb1 supposed to be even faster? - only I cant get that working with anything, not just mplayer.


Enjoy,

Hi, I just received my C3200 a couple of days ago and have been trying various ROMs. I found pdaxrom to be ideal for me and the new beta4 is fantastic.

I compiled and install the stratagus game engine and upon running it I was disappointed. It is slow and unplayable, sound is very jerky and so is movement. I can also see really bad tear lines.

I then tried running it in portrait mode (480x640) and it ran fantastically! Sound was now perfect, and it seemed to be running the same as on my desktop PC.... but I cant play it sideways smile.gif.

Could I have done something wrong when compiling stratagus? Do I need to enable some sort of hardware acceleration to allow landscape to match portrait performance?

This is incredibly frustrating me for. This will make lots of games unplayable when they could potentially run great. What about zpsx? How will that combat this issue?

Thanks,
Phill
