AVI Type Support With SMS?
AVI Type Support With SMS? –
Hey guys! I know that I read somewhere(either here on the forums or possibly another site) about the type AVI(Interleave) file that is supported by the SMS Player. I have searched here on the forums & also checked out the user manual & unless I totally overlooked that information then I can't seem to locate the place I read about this. I'd appreciate either a link or even just the information on the exact type(s) AVI files that SMS Player will recognize. I thought for sure that I read the info I need on these forums but for whatever reason I can't locate this. I've typed several possible words in the search that could pertain to what I neeed but can't find anything here. Thanks for the time to help guys! I'm thinking I seen only one specific type AVI(divx) but can't remember for sure.

Search EEUG's posts for his list of about a dozen supported codecs (not all tested). Essentially you need an MPEG4 AVI (XVID/DIVX) with MP3 or AC3 audio (multiple audio streams with identical settings are supported). In terms of interleaving, crappy interleaves may not play. Ideally you want 1 vid frame per audio interleave, but an even multiple (e.g., exactly 2 or 3, not 2.1 or 3.3) sometimes works. Are you having trouble with a specific type?
almost avi's (xvid or divx) u get on internet works on sms. so dont worry to much about compatibility- 90% works, only hd quality avi's wont work properly...
Thanks for the info! I'm not having any specific problems with an AVI file but I did wanna know before trying them out. I have made a couple bootable discs(CD & DVD) but these were with MP3 files only. I wanted to know about the specific AVI type before I got going with those type files. And yeah, I do have a lot of music files on the old PC so I did make a CD first & once I seen that worked I made a DVD disc full of my MP3's. I'm advancing to the AVI files now so thanks for that bit of information & I'll check out the post from EEUG to get even more info. Thanks again!
