PAL versions of DC programs refresh the screen at 50Hz, and NTSC versions refresh at 60Hz. As far as I know, most modern PAL TV sets will display an NTSC signal just fine but if you have a TV that only does 50 Hz, you'll want the PAL version.

I am not sure why there is both. Modern PAL TVs can run at 60Hz too. So, I assume that the PAL version might perform slightly better as it is possible that it might use the 50/60Hz difference... Hm, but actually that seems unlikely and would only affect you if you have a 50Hz PAL-TV and European/Chinese Dreamcast. For VGA and NTSC, 60Hz NTSC version is the only choice anyway.

has anyone had luck finding a working version of uDC. for me, it boots up and then displays a black screen that doesn't change, as well. i don't remember where i got it, but it didn't actually say it was corrupted. i did have the cdi image that did, and i think i downloaded it in plainfiles format, then bootdream'd it. so yeah. any help?

It looks like nobody is trying to upgrade that app anymore.

I don't think anyone has the source code to uDCDivX.

Anyone know what the last DivX and Xvid codecs it supported?

I tried the latest versions of those codecs, and they didn't work.

DivX 5.0.2 was known to work well. If you had the Pro version of the codec, bidirectional encoding allowed you to up the bitrate considerably, which should give better picture quality but then it skips the B-frames so you are effectively lowering the framerate of the video (although if you play it on a PC you will still have the full framerate). XviD, I'm not too sure about. Something old, from around the time the last version of DCDivX came out should definitely work, but I'm not sure about which newer versions of the codec work.
