Can DcPlaya play "video"?

Post by U-said-it » Thu Dec 04, 2008 5:52 pm

From what I read in a thread here, some people think that DcPlaya can actually run a FLV video stream.

But after testing myself a few times, all I got was the audio running, and consistently at least. So, is there a specific format the video has to be in to play? Or does it only play audio after all?

I tested it with some earlier videos by the Angry Video Game Nerd and they seem to run perfecty IIRC.

Would you be able to tell me the technical aspects of the video you ran? Such as the resolution, bitrate, and FPS?

I want to try converting the videos I have into something similar...
