This is a terrific little device, I've got one strapped to a 250gb usb HD, works great with my OFA remote, recommended.
#2
OUTSTANDING!! Been looking for something like this to take on hols with me, perfect for bringing your own entertainment (and some for the kids lol)
#3
No h.264 support? #fail
#4
damn. i just bought the ugly one last week :(
#5
Well worth the money. With this and the sumvision micro, its a shame they didn't put the usb port at the back. Would have looked less ugly and wouldn't have blocked the ir port from some angles.

Hot....

actually, looking at them, i think the other one is different, specs wise. def uglier though

and timtom, yeah, the general idea is that you can just throw something like an mpeg4 avi on a usb stick, and plug & play :)

Free Video conversion apps, so you can convert whatever doesn't work with this unit to a working format >

Does anyone that actually have one of these know what the compatibility is like with AVI / DIX movies? I've used many of these devices and always have problems. Usually 40% of AVI / DIVX movies do not work on them..

Thanks
#17
Maybe a silly question, but does this do the same things as the Sumvision one?
#18
This or the sumvision? any advice?

pointless
unless it supports MKV or h264 then there is no point, the bit rate once converted to play on this will be alot lower than the HD format.
upscaled xvid/divx dont look great
also stereo output sucks

would be better paying the extra and getting a true HD Streamer or a long hdmi and optical cable and running it from your pc as a 2nd monitor.

this is the one i would get,
http://www.ebuyer.com/product/233173

again the difference between mkv with a bitrate of 13000 with DTS AUDIO and a xvid(remuxed) with a bitrate of 4000 with stereo sound is so massive,its like watching the old style utube clips in comparrison to the 1080p utube clips these days.

while this product might seem ok,watch a mkv or proper HD rip,then go back to your upscaled xvid, enjoy the films and videos how they was intended

The answer should be "most likely". I'm afraid video files with .avi extension might be encoded with multiple codecs... I guess it supports most of them, so you should be able to play them. However some might not play, also you need to check the resolution, I guess it can't handle resolution higher than specified, but again you should be able to play most of them.

The one in your link is £75 this is Just over £15.

I think the unit in the OP is aimed at a different market. Its much more portable and ideal for hotel rooms etc but lacks the advantages of the not so portable units. If I was looking for one to stop by the tv at home, then I would buy the one you suggested.

well done for showing a better product for equivalent price..oh wait.
everyone knows you can buy better for more
this should be able to play dvd rips as vobs (no iso stated so i assume not supported) so id have thought would be the same as watching the dvd or can stick it in your pocket with some smaller rips/files and go elsewhere.
not everyone wants a device to do what you want to do so your opinion is basically irrelevant.

not tried this or the sumvision micro which claims to support isos which would make it better on paper than this one i think? (often get it at same price as this too)

Yes, you're right. I've got one of those and there are never ending problems with sound, scipping and picture quality. I've reverted to connecting my laptop to my TV through HDMI. No problems with any codecs including MKV and H.264, and should there be an odd codec I can quickly update my GOM player (or VLC player).

I wouldn't bother with those cheap players unless you need to travel and got a definate selection of working movies.

The romte control of this player is dreadful, BTW.

Dont!
If you are buying this DVD player for the USB function. I purchased this a few months ago and went thru about 4 external Hard disks and 4 flash drives. None worked. Did not bother returning it as I cant stand the faff of posting it but it was a waste of money.

My point is this is a pointless bit of kit that does nothing,its has problems with alot of codecs,i just dont see the point of having hdmi if you not going to use a HD source,xvid is not HD nad this player does not support HDxvid either as its max resolution is 576.

yes the player i linked is 4 times the prices,but it is also very portable,
i just think £20 with delivery an the amount o time you will be without de to sending it back is pointless.
you dont have to buy the one i linked brand new,i have seen 2nd hand ones sub £40 at times

Ok regarding media streamers. Those sayin no H264 an voting it cold please compare like with like. H264 decodoing requires a more expensive chipset that is only available on more expensive media streamers.

Prices are rougly as follows.
cheap and cheerful for divx, but require a usb source i.e a pen drive or external HD
Xenta
Sumvision micro
WDTV mini
Of these id get he wdtv mini for about £20-25. Better interface and better product although no hdmi out. If you have a usb source, then the above are ok for stuff you dload off the internet and dvds.

Next step up you get more codecs i.e h264, MKV, WMV9 and hd like 1080p.
WDTV and sumvision cyclone. They are about £50.

The next step up has the killer feature which is an ethernet connector which lest you stream movies on your pc to the TV. This is a very importnat feature for a lot of people. The units also do more codecs as hey use more expesive chipsets.

There was a bargain posted recenly of the Hisense media streamer from expansys with £10 cashback which plays all the major file formats and also has a Lan output all for £40. It was a real bargain. In this category are WDTV live (good quality, interface etc £70) Sumvision MKV or enclosure which takes a HDD (£55-65) and playon mini (£70). They all have their supporters.

If you wnat to move to the top end then its popcorn hour time which can accept Yamj, which provides a great user interface video jukebox. It plays all the codecs, has all the outputs and has both Lan and can take an internal HD. It will cost you about £140 This is the one with movie buffs who wnat to buy quality. geeks on a budget soemtimes prefer he category down.

the point of the post is to give people who dont know a quick idea of features to look for. A lot of it is about speed, codec compatibility and ease of use. If one of the cheaper items does what you want, then there is no reason to pay for features you wont use. For the people saying this deal it doesnt decode h264 so its cold, thats plain silly. It is what it is a bargain cheap media player for £15 and doesnt pretend to be anything else. H264 players cost more money, so maybe vote on one of those. the reason to vote it cold is if it doesnt do what it claims i.e only decodeds some of he codecs is slow or there are better priced competitors that do the job better and cheaper or the same product is cheaper elsewhere. Comparing a sportscar with a fiat panda isnt the best comparison.

It's a media player for £16, it's ok, not the best obviously but it is what it is, if u want something better then go pay for it. Watched all 7 series of the shield on it, about 15 movies, played photo albums of our holiday on it, no problems, good bit of kit for the money, several friends have one after seeing ours and are all happy, simples!!!
