I've been experiencing trouble playing DivX movies with v1.7 R4. XviD movies play perfectly, but DivX movies seem to take a longer time to load and then during playback the movie will freeze from time to time and some of the pixels will get temporarily distorted.
EDIT: also during DivX playback, player controls really lag. I have to hold the button down a for several seconds before anything happens.
Update your version, try it again, and if your problems persist, post back here. No reason to complain about old versions when potentially your issues are fixed in the update.

I noticed that screen height does not work while in DTV 480P. A weird value shows up where 0 should be, and pressing buttoms to enlarge / shrink the screen vertically doesn´t do anything.
I know you may not be able to fix it (since you can´t test it yourself...), but I just wanted to report it here.
I've updated to v1.7 R6 and the problem still persists with divx encoded avis taking a while to load and then constantly freezing, getting garbled pixels.

one movie here and a small video
the problem is not in the file, because it runs normal here in my PC
codec problems, maybe? could you fix this, please? I wanna see the movie on my TV...
bug report: I can't 'feel' the bass in techno or rap musics... and there are some musics here that plays normal in my PC, but in SMS the quality seems poor...
codec problems again, maybe?
I would not mind if SMS needed to have a larger size, if it had a lot of codecs to play a lot of multimedia files...
Fast playback without sound indicates an unsupported audio codec. Re-encode your .avi with MP3 or AC3 audio (no need to re-encode the video, just select Direct Stream Copy in VirtualDub). I recommend the LAME MP3 codec.

Reason: I meant AC3, not AAC

Of course it would be nice, everyone agrees with that, but you have to accept the practical realities here.

And that's why it's unreasonable to expect all possible formats and codecs to be supported. One man simply can't provide such all-encompassing support, and especially not for a hobby project as opposed to a full-time occupation.

oh yeah, I agree with you

and this single-man could ask for help, putting more people in this Great Project... I am not an expert programmer, but I think there are guys here that would be happy to help developing this project
I like SMS because it is simple and has USB, HDD and Network support, stuff that PS2 Reality doesn't have
well, but it is just my opinion
I know it is difficult
