Difference: PluginVideo (r5 vs. r4)
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:
The same method was used later to develop the grayscale library and its new, way faster incarnation, the greyscale library, which is currently used by the JPEG viewer, the mandelbrot set explorer, the cube demo, the plasma demo and the grayscale library demo?fire demo.
