I got my Iplayer review card along with my M3i Zero card!.....
Here's My review (Its quite a long indepth one as I tested many formats of files) ...
note:- (LOTS OF IMAGES to follow so dial up users BEWARE may take some time loading!!!)
First some screen shots
Unboxing the card like with most DS cards It comes with a Usb Card Reader this time in Smart black plastic which
feels quite flimsy but works fine, It also comes with a disk that contains the loader/system files and a word doc manual..
also in the box is a nice glossy color printed mini manual/user guide
Some more pictures
A nice Multilingual manual/instructions and included disk came in the box which includes ....
Instructions in several languages as well as a basic user guide
OK so now on with the review ....
For this test I will be using an 8gb class 6 micro sd I have spare ....
current version of the loader/player software kernel at time of testing is iPlayer OS v1.0
available here :
Linfoxdomain Flashcard Loader Archives http://www.linfoxdomain.com/nintendo/ds/
Official website ... http://www.dsiplayer.com/
Official website intro/Manual http://www.dsiplayer.com/intro.html
For this test I will be using a number of different Media types as suggested/supported on the box these are
AVI,DIVX,MOV,RMVB,,ASF,FLV,3GP,MPG,WMV,MP3 I will test a couple more different ones such as FLAC and
,MP4,VOB to see if it will play them even though it does not state a couple of those formats.
First off to install the iPlayer OS to the mem card .... you need to download the kernel files from one of the links above **
Then you need to unzip/unrar or whatever you use to unpack zipped/compressed files with ..
You will now have a folder called _System .. put your mem card into the card reader and connect it to your usb port of the
pc ... now you need to drag this entire folder to your mem card to copy the system/loader files onto it!
Now put your mem card into your Iplayer card and the Iplayer card into your DS and start the DS up you need to do this
for the first time before putting any media onto your mem card to automatically create the necessary VIDEO and MUSIC
folders for your media files ..
(I made the mistake first time round making my own folders this caused freezes and corruption so just get the card to
make the files for you!)
Once the interface of the Iplayer has loaded once shut down your ds and take out the mem card and put it back in the
card reader and you will now see the folders it created ...
all you need to do now is copy the files you want to use to the right folders for video and music .. for homebrew you can
run it from anywhere on the card I just made another folder for them.
Now on to testing some video clips ...
AVI: test movie.avi
(note this was a full 2 hr movie i had on hd!!! )
result plays great although you have to change the settings to show in original size or it shows stretched!
3gpp (Mobile Phone video) (test.3gpp)
result plays great but needs to be set to Full Screen in the settings otherwise it appears as a small square in the middle
with an inch black border!This post has been edited by kmanic, Thu, July 30th, 2009 at 00:43
