@lee99: ...yes, I've discovered that one also just yesterday . It appears to be fixed now and next update will contain the fix...
I was triyng to see a video file, but it gets very choppy on sms 1.9 rev.2. I used avi splitter and cut a piece of it, here it is:
Maybe you could see if it's possible to make it compatible with sms? Thanks
EDIT: Please use TT instead of XX on url, for some weird reason I can't post url on this forum...
Without touching the file at all, I'd say it might be too high of a bitrate to play. Just a guess.

The fact is, even my computer had some trouble with this clip... ('jerkiness' etc)
(At least while running my usual network downloads in background.)

Hooray for surprisingly correct blind guesses.
I've not found anything sensible to work stretch audio. I'm thinking about this problem in the back of my mind.... If the refresh rate of the avi was less than 25 fps - e.g 23.976 then how about showing "padding" frames every xxx mseconds - these would be the same frame over again - in an attempt to reduce a larger jerk when sync is updated?

Hmm okay i'm gonna try downloading a diferent encode from another fansub then.
Thanks for the attention

NTSC based video runs at approximately 30 fps (actually 29.97 fps), but film runs at 24 fps. To convert a film that runs at 24 fps to run at 29.97 fps, it is first necessary to slow down the video by 0.1% to 23.976 fps. Then approximately 6 frames are added to the video each second, bringing the frame rate to 29.97 fps. This is done by adding one extra frame to each group of 4 film frames. Although they could simply duplicate 1 out of every 4 frames to produce the extra frame, this method is not used. This is because the duplication of one frame would cause that frame to be displayed for twice as long as the other 3 frames, which leads to jerkier motion. Fortunately, film producers can make use of the field-based nature of video to more gradually introduce the extra frame. Instead of adding a whole new frame at once, 2 fields are introduced separately to each group of 4 film frames. Since 2 fields make up a frame, this method is equivalent to adding 1 new frame. However, since the 2 duplicated fields are not added at the same time, this reduces the jerkiness of the video.
@peterdcrees: ...fields can only be applied to interlaced video. SMS does not support interlaced DivX/XviD as I've almost never seen its real usage...
