Stop the project as PS2 will soon die anyway
I hope one day SMS will supoort PC side video decoding ,so high definition like 720p and 1080i can be played using PS2.
why even consider mpeg ? is huge in size .........
consider ogg audio decoder(there is already a port for this If I'm not mistaken)/aac if possible ?/ogm and mkv container ..which currently using divix /xivid for the video side ..............
I'll bet the PS2 still has plenty of life left, even once the PS3 (eventually) comes out:
- the PS1 was still in production until recently, so we can expect PS2 production to continue for many years into the PS3 cycle
- how long it takes for homebrew to get going on the PS3 is anybody's guess, it could be weeks, years, never.
- once the PS2 does die (because PS3 games become compelling), people will turn it into a media player with SMS!
I'd preferably want to see the MP3 function more enhance. Some mp3 types still aren't playing. Plus whenever I press select to pause it'd freeze the program itself. I'm using the latest version 1.7rev2. The pause mp3 problem had been there forever. I think i mention it once on this board, but it never got fix.
I think you did a great job in the video part. Exellent job. I don't care about other format like .mpeg because most .mpeg file are not movie. People don't ussually encode movie in mpeg format so I don't it it need to be implement. AVI is good enought. Just implant all the old codecs and new ones.
I think once you got this project a solid one, w/no big glitches, you should stop and move on because ps2 is going to be obsolete in a years and your work will go to waste as people'd preferably play with their ps3.
@Stand:...hmm, mp3 pause works here somehow ("select" - pause, "start" - continue")...
Mpeg support is the best way to go, it will make many people with vcd's, very happy!
Damn I can't believe nobody would like to have SMS have the ability to file manage. I understand that there are already a number of programs out that are capable of doing so. It's just... wouldn't you like if there was 1 program that could do it all, instead of having a numerous amount of apps on your MC, USB, or HDD that do seperate things(play MP3's, play video files, file manage, etc., etc...)
I think it would be cool if EEUG, dlanor, and ntba2 teamed up and designed the ultimate homebrew utility application for the PS2... capable of doing it all
Glad to see that nobody's voted to stop the project
Sounds to me like Eeug has run out of steam a bit a needs a bit of encouragement to keep on amending the player If this is the case I'm more than happy to congratulate him on what he's done so far and hope that he continues the great work!
Incidentally (I have to admit I don't really know how this will affect homebrew applications), but if the PS3 is to be backwards compatible doesn't that mean that SMS will work on it with compatively few amendments ?
"...Eeug has run out of steam...": ...I would say out of interest . There're hell lot of things I'd like to do with it and as there's no interest from developers...well, I will continue with it anyway, but not so fast as before ...
