Difference: PluginVideo (r4 vs. r3)
A video player in grayscale, with sound. NOTE: This plugin only works on the Archos Recorders and Ondio.
This plugin acts as a ViewerPlugin for .rvf files. RVF is a special video format needed for video playback on the archos; if you want to watch videos you need to convert them into that format. There are 2 methods to do this, either using a set of command line utilities, described in the VideoTutorial and available for both Windows and Linux, or a DirectShow filter in conjunction with an easy to use GUI application (Windows only).
The archos lcd screen is only able to display black & white. The video player simulates grayscales by quickly flipping the pixels between black and white. The ratio of black and white pixels displayed at a pixel spot defines the perceived brightness of that spot. There are some implications of this technique:
