bought it cause i liked the 5500 version, but the 5600 (xscale) vers gives an invalid codec error...

I had it working..though I think i might have been using the 55 version on a 56....
I no longer own my 56, and so can't replicate and ttest, but I assure you it does work (I was using watapon rom 1.4 btw)

thx for the response. yeah 5500 works (choppy) on my 5600. wondering if anyone's using the xscale optimized one on a 5600 and how they encoded the videos.

what rom are you using? I think the only kernels that don't use the cache-bug-workaround are the "special kernel" and the one in watapon. Truning off the cache-bug-workaround makes a big difference.

Also, do you have libmad installed and working? Video will get choppy if the Z uses floating point instead of integer operations to decode mp3--ad mp3lib(?) or whatever the default is uses floating point.

ssh in and run the (55) program.. read the output to see what lib your z is using to decode the audio.. you might get rid of a lot of choppiness.

While I'm at it the free kino2 (latest release) with the new mpler w100 (though you'd use the framebuffer on a 56) Is really really nice...and since that mplayer is statically lined, you get libmad doint the mp3 decoding off the bat, as well as ogg, ang ogm video..
