    well, if you have never experienced a reset with it, then it must be
    100% bug free. Every time it crashed while running TCPMP, that was the only program running... and I tried Installing it on the card using Zlauncher after it reset a bunch while being installed in the phone's RAM. No luck, not user error... I guess I'll give a different video player a shot.

    I used mmplayer. After the novelty wears off, the whole thing is kind of impractical.

It works pretty well -- I can watch HBO anywhere in the house! lol Is anyone else playing around with this capability?
    That's pretty kewl. Has anyone seen this device you plug your TV cable into and it then plugs into your wireless router so you can watch Cable TV via your laptop wirelessly? The GUI software for the laptop also has the controls channel, volume, etc.

    TCMCP works great for me. Last night I was showing my friends my porn..i mean action movies on my phone and they were quite impressed. I have MMplayer as well but just like my MC Hammer pants..it's just collecting dust.

    Tony, it's stable with movies I encode/recode. I've never had a crash either. Possibly it's the video you're using. I encode all my DVD's as xvid/mp3, 320x240.

    I always set a 1.5hour-2.5hour movie to a maximum of 450mb. Quality is phenominal and I can easily fit two movies on my 2gb card. Never, ever had a crash.

    MMplayer used to crash all the time, and kinoma was a HUGE waste of money. Plus I only drop maybe 5 frames after watching an entire movie, and it's probably a result of the treo's background services running. MMplayer and kinoma drop frames like crazy at decent quality settings.

    For most of us the phone's RAM works perfect. Using the PocketDivx Encoder it's downright scary how good movies look at 320 x 240. MM Player is terrible in comparison. Either you have a conflict or perhaps your movies are not encoded properly or you just don't have enough RAM. I've made sure to have 4-5MB free at minimum. On some occasions there are little hangs as video stops momentarily and then it chugs on along beautifully.

    one more "never crashed" nod for TCPMP ver64c works flawlessly for me

    Thanks Perry - as you know I am a big fan of entertainment applications for our Treo and have worked closely with MMPlayer, Kinoma and now TCPMP (which is without a doubt a killer app).

    Here is the TCPMP review http://blog.treonauts.com/2005/04/omg_now_full_vi.html as well as a previous post about how to convert your DVD's for playback on the Treo (which I will update shortly with a couple of new solutions) http://blog.treonauts.com/2004/07/treo_600_dvd_mo.html and finally also Kinoma which had been my preferred player before TCPMP came on the scene http://blog.treonauts.com/2004/12/pocket_video_on.html

    I have definitely not had any stability issues with TCPMP - the only bug is that I can't yet play _all_ available formats but otherwise it really rocks.

    Cheers, W.

    Did you post your problem / configuration at the TCPMP forum? picard is probably the most responsive freeware developer on the planet.

    Another big thumbs up for TCPMP. I never use MMPlayer or Kinoma anymore.

    TCPMP is so good I'm tempted to buy/pay for the new tool they have (or the PocketDivx people) replacing the PocketDivx software (which works great) for the $5 or 10 that they are asking. So far with 4 movies I haven't had a single problem.

    I use PocketDVD to encode my DVD's. Run the avi file through SmartMovie Converter. Copy the file to my SD card and use SmartMovie to watch it. Audio/Video sync is great. Quality is great. And best of all, I get the file size down to around 200mb for a two hour movie.

    As for FREE software for ripping DVD's I use Fairuse Wizard. The light edition is free. It is a one step program that creates high quality AVI files to play on your device. This program gets a lot more praise and attention over in the PPC forums. I am not sure why so few people use it here.

    Crashes can be decieving sometimes on the 650. It may look like one program is causing them, but really it is another program in the background. The reason it may look like the wrong program is making it crash is because that program is filling up the cache. You can read more about it here:
    http://mytreo.net/archives/2005/07/l...r_treo_650.php

    Try the latest version of TCPMP though... I found TCPMP to be most reliable when i had both the decoder libraries and the program file in the /Palm/Launcher/ directory on my SD card.

    Thanks for the info on FairUse Wizard, cec. I'm trying it out now.

    Cheers,

    I had the same problem and its not about running out of space on your card. Many times when you hotsync large files (i.e. movies) your Treo will automatically cut the connection short after a certain amount of time has elapsed. This is when you get the "Error code: 268461072." and your movie doesn't get uploaded completely. In order to avoid this problem you can program your Treo to go into "wait forever" mode during hotsyncs. In order to do this:
    1) Launch the Hotsync program.
    2) Press and hold the scroll up button (i.e. the up arrow).
    3) Then, while holding down the scroll up button press, with your stylus, the upper right hand corner of the touch screen
    4) If you've done this correctly a text box will open that says "DLServer WaitForever is ON"
    5) Press "OK"

    Now the next time you Hotsync the program wont time out over a long period.

    Good Luck,

    This has been written about a number of times. The short answer is: Do NOT hotsynch movies. Instead, do a copy and paste function from your desktop computer to your SD card...always!

    Hey Casey,

    A few things.

    Firstly, I've never seen this written in response to XXX request. You can't expect him to search every thread to look for an answer.

    Secondly, copying and pasting to the SD card doesn't work if you're using the Pics&Videos application (some people may not want to fork out the extra cash for mmplayer or kimona player when they can get the same thing for free). The player doesn't know that file exists (unles you hack the database file) even if you copy it to the correct directory.

    Finally, if your using the wrong formatted movie file, uploading the file to the palm desktop can often convert the file to a readible format for Pics&Videos.

    Regis,

    I'm a little confused about your message. In any case, you are correct that copying and pasting through Pics&Videos cannot be done. This is not the right method.

    The right method is to stick your SD card into a card reader plugged into your desktop computer. Go to My Computer (if using a Windows PC), and open the letter drive that corresponds to the SD card reader. Double click on the SD card folder, and you will hopefully find a folder that says "DCIM". Double click to open the DCIM folder--this is the same folder that's probably holding all your picture and video files. Now, copy and paste (or cut and paste) the burned movie from your desktop computer into the opened DCIM folder within the SD card folder. For example, if a movie is 500MB in size, the entire copy and paste might take around 14 minutes. I don't know how long if trying to do a hotsynch instead, but I imagine it would take much, much longer. Hence, the reason to copy and paste as a desktop function, rather than a hotsynch function.

    After the copying and pasting of the movie onto the SD card is done, then simply take out the SD card from the reader, and insert back into the Treo. Then open up the TCPMP player, and click on Open Files, and check/highlight the desired movie to start playing the movie.

    The TCPMP core media player application is a FREE program. I don't know about MMPlayer or Kinoma. I did previously try to use MMPlayer, but found this to be lacking compared to TCPMP.

    The TCPMP core media player can read various movie formats, such as .AVI, .OGG, etc. However, the Palm Pics&Video player has its own proprietary format, and therefore canNOT read the burned movie files. This too has been discussed a number of times before.

    Anyway, the short answer to the original poster's question is that it's far better to do a copy and paste function of the burned movie onto the SD card through your desktop computer, instead of hotsynching. That's the gist of what I was trying to say earlier.
