DivX mobile

I see you can now get DivX Mobile Player for your phone or PDA.

That’s one area I’ve never really explored: mobile video. Jane has an iPod Video that allows her to watch full-length videos on, but it’s always such a hassle to rip the DVD to iPod/PDA format that we’ve only ever converted a couple of DVDs, and one reason that I’ve never tried the same for my Windows Mobile 6-powered PDA phone.

Anyone out there is the blogosphere had good experiences of mobile video?

  1. TCPMP is great. I’ve had it on my i-Mate since about a week after I got the thing and have used it on planes and trains to watch TV shows and even movies on the move. TCPMP supports almost every video codec out there, but annoyingly doesn’t support AAC audio, so any ‘vodcasts’ have to have their audio converted before you can watch them. The screen on my i-Mate is slightly bigger than that on the video iPod, and holding the thing on your knee in a plane is equivalent to watching a small TV across a living room…

    But converting DVDs to DivX is quite annoying, especially as they keep on inventing new copy protection ideas to try and stop people doing this… DVDfab usually keeps ahead of the game though… ;o)
