    For those that have not heard of the Kinoma Player and haven't tried it, you are missing out on one of the best features of your Treo!

    I now have 1hour TV programs, Music videos, Canon Camera mpeg clips, and anything you can see on TV (previously recorded in my computer) in my 2 256 sd cards and watch them when I am bored - waiting in a line at the Post Office, Bank, Doctor's clinic, shopping mail (while the wife is shopping) etc.

    It uses approx. 1.5 megs per minute of memory so you can actually do a full movie in a 512 meg sd card. The video quality is not bad at all and it looks like it doesn't eat up my batteries either, even after an hour of viewing.

    Now my Treo is also a full-pledge video player, Jukebox, Camera, etc., etc., etc.

    I think Handspring invented the latest baby-sitting device for grownups!

    Can you play the following quicktime video? I haven't gotten around to trying any of the video players yet.

    Edkalama,

    How do you download and convert TV shows? This would be sooooo cool being able to watch a favorite tv show on the fly.

    BTW, I just recently learned how to convert using Kinoma Producer and have several mini videos from my digicam on my Treo, which is 10 times better and more exciting than pics IMHO.

    Thanks

    The following guys link works, but it does (as he says) end up in audio prblems with synchronisation. If you know of any way to erradicate that or a better way of creating video please post. I have spent enough cash getting this far.
    The Treo is the most amazing gadget I have ever bought so far! and lets push the limit, I dont think Handspring went as far as they could before Palmone got them.

    I have an EyeTV Digital Video Recorder ($200 http://www.elgato.com )connected to my cable TV and Apple Powerbook 17. This is how I record the TV programs into my computer. Once recorded, I further save it as a Quicktime Movie using Quicktime Pro software. This is the most critical step. (If you don't do this the Kinoma software will not convert the audio portion) From there I just simply add it to the Kinoma Producer screen to convert the file for the Treo.

    The eyeTV recorder will also allow you to connect a DVD Player or VCR and also record whatever is playing in DVD or Videocasette. Afterwards, save it as Quicktime movie as per above! So as you can see the possibilities are limitless

    This will only work with Macs but I am sure that there are similar equipments out there that are windows oriented.

    I am now looking forward to the next Treo with the Hi-Res. 320X320 or better!

    A word of caution - I've been using the original EyeTV USB unit which encodes in MPEG- 1 format. I just learned from elgato.com site that the new EyeTV200 with firewire encodes in MPEG -2. I think this may not work with the Kinoma Producer and will only convert the video part.

    Any comments from Mac users with the new firewire unit?

    Would one of you be willing to share some Kimona created movies so we can try out the player to help people decide if the Producer is worth getting?

    Hey, can somebody try the following link and tell me if your player can play the video clip? It is a skiing clip so don't worry, it's not porn!

    It played on my Treo. Took 6.3 megs on the SD card. As far as quality is concerned, pretty much the same as the video clip including the blotchy areas on the fast moving skier. Otherwise, it's acceptable.

    I tried but not able to attach because of the size limit below, so could someone tell me how do I link or attach a mini video to the site?

    Ok this may not answer your question but this is what I did to make it work:
    1. Click on the link you submitted
    2.While video clip is playing I paused it
    3.Right click on the video and "save it as aQuicktime movie" and saved it on my desktop
    4.Insert SD card on Card reader (connected via USB) to my Powerbook
    5.Open Kinoma Producer and click on the export location to make sure that it is the SD card
    5.Click add files and convert
    6.When conversion is compleete, remove SD card from card reader, and insert in Treo
    7.Open Kinoma Player on your Treo and that's it.

    This will not help you at all. What you will see in the computer is not a true copy of the Treo screen. Don't forget the Treo is only 160 X 160. Also it's garbage in, garbage out. I find that the ones I copied from my DVD's really looked way better than TV programs I recorded.

    If you go to the Kinoma site, they have some free video clips that you can download to your Treo's Kinoma player. That will give you an idea on the actual quality right on your own Treo.

    It's very easy. I've done it. Get a tv tuner card for your computer (I have a USB one...I paid around $100 for it), hook up your tv cable and record a tv show right on your hard drive. Then use Kinoma Producer 2 to convert the (very large) file on your computer to a palm one (I compress it at 10 frames per second and 400-480 KBS) and then do a hot sync. You'll need about 3-4 megabytes per minute on your SD card. A half hour show will be around 100-120 MBs.
