Well... If i had another player, i would try... If don't work, there
may be some way to reduce video size... maybe a program that reduce
the images size before it goes on the player is a bit more wise than
try to write a firmware...

But i want also to change the themes of the player too... Maybe i
should just save money to but another player that support rockbox...
