I would expect that video that is encoded specifically for the 650/700p (e.g., 4:3 video encoded at a 320x240 resolution to maintain that 4:3 aspect ratio) should look great.

    I suspect that your problem may be due to the tool that you're using to do the encoding. Take a look at this really long thread at my site (Tapland). Starting on page 4 a user by the handle of dougom (a new staff member of mine) starts giving some user reviews of various software tools for encoding DVDs. Again, he's looking at it from a Zodiac-optimized perspective, but I suspect his impressions/advice should apply equally well for encoding for the Treo 650/700p.
    Thanks again, Scott.

    I think my problem is that I'm using .avi files encoded for my Archos AV400 portable video player. The size it uses is a little higher than 480X320. Lazy me, I tried to simply play those files on the Treo 650 rather than go through the ordeal of re-encoding them at a smaller size. That's good info as I move forward.

    The best solution for me would be to find a player that does iPod Video files in MP4; which are also done at 320X240. Like several other early adopters, I have an iPod Video 60GB and have already filled it up with clips - it'd be great to share them with the Treo 700p and leave the iPod at home.

    As I recall, the plug-in mentioned on the TCMP forums was for the iPod formatted MP4's... Hope it's out soon!

    I'll look at your thread when my 700 arrives, either tomorrow or Wednesday, and let everyone know what I figure out.

    Thanks again!

    Hey, Scott -

    I got my 700p today, and loaded up TCMP and some .avi files...and they worked fine! I was pretty surprised...the only problem is that they are a wee bit out of synch. I think I made a 3 frame adjustment that works - I'll have to test it further, though.

    Thanks a lot for all your help!

    Wow. Streaming XM is AWESOME. Just tried it out. Unreal. I'd give anything for them to allow the MLB games online -- not a huge music fan (XM was my wife's idea).

    Ol' Doug just got himself a Treo, and has been experimenting with running movies via TCPMP on it. I realize that this is an old thread, but if folks are interested, I'm happy to give people the benefits of my experience. (Certainly not wisdom.)

    I just went to test.orb.com and was able to play the wmv in Kinoma. Only issues is that the video is so choppy, you are unable to really see what's going on in the video. Not sure if this is only me, but only way I can watch video on the 700p is through my sd card and TCPMP.

    Has anyone figured out a way to play a locally cached WMV file (i.e.: from the SD card) on the Treo?
    Palm Personal => V => Vx (w/OmniSky) => m505 => Treo 300 => 600 => 650 (free of charge) => 700P (free of charge again!)

    i'm wondering the same thing, what good is kinoma if you don't want to stream .wmv but play straight from the card? what gives?

    I believe you need to get the full version of Kinoma in order to play files from your card.

    Huh? The documentation for Kinoma PLAYER doesn't mention WMV support at all. Kinoma PRODUCER will create movies playable on the Palm from WMV files; said movies can be played by Kinoma Player, TCPMP, etc.

    Unfortunately not. TCPMP will of course play many formats but generally not WMV. If you search on "TCPMP WMV" you'll find out why.

    So does that mean that there isn't any app I can install that will allow me to view a WMV file that is attached to an email (SnapperMail)?
