Hi,

I've just had the Elonex OneT delivered. I tried playing an AVI file through the media player and it pixalates badly and skips badly...has anyone else had this problem??

Cheers,

Mark

Yes it is not very brilliant, this said it depands what kind of AVI files you try to play.
Some works better than other, depanding on the resolution.
Apart from that and the sound which is hopeless Iloved the t+ !
Good luck!

Yes, you have to keep the bit-rate quite low and the resolution for that matter too. I have a bunch of movies which I converted from DVD to my iPaq (320x240 screen) a few years ago and those tend to play alot better. The poor little <400MHz processor just isn't up to the job of anything with a higher bitrate, sadly.

Duh - sorry I blame the hour but I posted something for the Onet in the ordinary One section - I've corrected that but don't think I can just delete this entry?

The OneT is a low spec laptop and would find anything recent difficult to play.  I have a largish collection of XVID, AVI etc from years and years ago (some I even made myself by ripping DVDs in Ms-DOS) - so speaking with some experience in the video playing 'field' you would be better of with older XVIDs and AVI (old DIVX) for example.  It can play MPG etc okay but I dumped that collection years ago - bah!
