Re: how to do you own .rvf Rockbox Video File

I just converted the first simpsons episode and I realize there are
some things that would make the video player much better. Currently
it is almost impossible to synch the video and audio perfectly even if
I make a mp3 with a count-down intro that goes something like
"three-two-one, start the video NOW!"

What about making playlists load different types of files? For
instance, here is my suggestion.

here is a playlist file:

/.rockbox/video.cfg // config file that sets backlight to on, and
                       // alters the contrast
simpsons.rvf,simpsons.mp3 // load the mp3 and rvf at the same time
                          // then set them to pause (when I press
                          // play, they go together!
/.rockbox/default.cfg // config file that is normal


ID> Hi,

ID> I've uploaded some tools in the doom directory:

ID> All zip files except the big one are updated, there is a new one for source
ID> code and tools. The video.rock plugin in the rec/ has been tweaked, now
ID> does 71 fps from files.

ID> To do your own video, you need to:
ID> 1. make a .AVI file with 112*64 resolution (for best results: the pixels
ID> have a 0.8 aspect ratio)
ID> 2. run avi2yuv.exe to convert it to raw data
ID> 3. use my halftone.exe to convert to Rockbox format, see command line help
ID> for options.

ID> I'm looking forward to see your clips,
