One question : why is there such a gap in performance between SmPlayer and PanPlayer ? I believe both are using mplayer2 for playback. But at the same frequency I get more or less smooth playback on Panplayer and a slideshow on SmPlayer -> is this due to defaults settings they use for mplayer2 ?
First thing to confirm is that you are using the SMPlayer2 pnd from here and not the SMPlayer pnd which uses the much slower mplayer binary in the firmware. Your icon or menu item should be titled SMPlayer2 - NOT SMPlayer
If you are still having problems after that, try deleting the smplayer2 appdata directory- perhaps the defaults got screwed up- or you have a very old config.
You can use Handbrake. It's Free software and it works fine.So what did you use to downscale ?Yeah, I've downscaled everything to about 480p and it plays perfectly. I was trying to do 1080p simply because I didn't know how to downscale it then, but a quick google search helped me out there. Marvellous.

I get the following error when trying to play some MP4 videos on my Rebirth unit, with the latest Super Zaxxon release installed:
Is this a known issue ?
