HD 720p movie in a Q1

I was asked recently if a HD 720p movie would play in a Q1.The answer is in this short video.

  1. Good video Frank. One thing people need to realize is that while a very compressed 720p video may play on these devices, you're not seeing them in actual High Definition. For this video you would need a screen res with 720 horizontal lines and likely 1,280 vertical.

  2. I was going to ask a similar question!
    Whats the format/bitrate of the movie you're playing. Thats more important than the original format in this case. Do you have a link to the original?

    I like to talk in terms of mbps when referrring to the video processing power of the UMPCs. For example I know that the Celeron/Pentium UMPCs should be able to handle 6mbps of WMV which is more than enough quality for probably 99% of users.

    Good video tho. Thanks Frank.


  3. In the video I'm specifying that it's a divx file. You can download it here

    I also tried some of the WMV from this site but I'm having problem with the audio. If I disable the audio the video plays fine without skipping any frames.

  4. I've had problems playing 720p WMVHD at around 6Mbps.
    I'm running Vista now though.

  5. yeap, in my case the sound is making a nasty noise and the video is really choppy. But when I turn off the sound using VLC options, the video plays ok. I do know exactly at this point what is causing the problem. Probably 6 mpbs is too much.
