If I had an HD ready TV I'd rather have one of these than a BluRay player any day, especially the A-110. Very nice indeed.

Re: What about High Definition streams?

How do I find out what is being used eactly to decode the file? Also, did it not play the file, crash, or what? MPC is the only program that will play my 1080i files, all other programs crash. I have Nero 7 Ultra 7, and PowerDVD 7.2along with Matrostoska installed. I have no preference set in MPC for decoding this file. It also takes at least a dual core processor or a single core with a video card that has a good GPU itself. I may have said that wrong, because I am rather hardware illiterate.

As for the file being "invalid" I am not sure what is up with that one. I used that program to check out the original files out of the camera, those were "invalid" as well. I have no idea what that program is looking for in terms of being "valid". I have

Re: What about High Definition streams?

If you installed software for your camera it could add a codec which supports the container better than Matroska. Usually Haali plays anything, so I don't know what may cause the error.

You can check installed codecs with GSpot: Tables > Video Codecs. I have Microsoft, and ~ISOMP4 (isom: MP4 Base Media v1 [IS0 14496-12:2003]) - I have no idea what is it Anyway, Haali takes control over the container when played by MPC.

Edit: from the icon of the file properties I see that you decoder is part of Quicktime. If i try to open the file in it I get Error: -50 an unknown error occured. Doh... I wish to be more friendly

Sullen, FWIW Plex can play your file so I'm guessing that XBMC could also handle it.

Let me correct myself, when I play it with MPC it is using Haali as you said. As of the Quicktime Icon, that was just associated with the file last time I installed Quicktime. I don't like Quicktime, but it automatically associated the .MP4 extension to the Quicktime player, it has nothing to do with how the file is being played.

I figured it out, it's using the Cyberlink H.264/AVC Decoder (PDVD 7.x). I found it under Play > Filters.

It's 288mb for 3min 17sec.
Suggested player is MPC as you can change the audio from the default synced external audio or the camera audio.
On the Mac, QuickTime 7.1 and VLC8 do not play this file

With QuickTime and Perian: Pretty spotty and takes a long time to prepare to actually play, if indeed a file will.

VLC O.8.6 was pretty good most of the time but the OS X release of 0.9.2 has been very buggy and 0.9.3 can't come quickly enough.

Plex/OSXBMC handle MKV extremely well. UI takes a lot of getting used to and there are stability issues but the file handling itself is excellent.

Re: What about High Definition streams?

allow me to rephase the question:

has anyone tried any of the new HDMI video cards that are HDCP compliant.

they offer 1080p + 5.1 audio..etc..etc.

Re: What about High Definition streams?

I've "streamed" blu-rays to my 24" monitor that is hdcp compliant via hdmi (dvi also fwiw). That's the same thing right? My card is pretty cheap and I haven't noticed any issues. Never to a TV yet but I can't imagine it would be an issue. What is the conflicting info. you are seeing? Are you questioning whether it is worth having an HD TV without HDCP DVI?
