    Curious what codecs the video player handle and if its possible to add others?

    Its not working properly with SVT's (Swedish TV) streamed transmissions for mobile devices, you get inverted colours and similar faults.

    Been trying to contact SVT too but havent got hold of anyone there yet that could say what codec they use.

    Edited to say that SVT gave me a call back and they use .h264 but since the Pre isnt sold here yet its not recognized by their website. Apparently there are different versions of the codec and the webserver senses what device you got but since the Pre aint listed yet the server seem to use a version not compatible with the Pre.

    If you don't know what any of those file/container types are, you should do some studying up on it (Google is your friend). Read the Handbreak site for reference.
    I'm not sure about adding new codecs, but I doubt this is possible at the moment.

    Will Flash 10.1 add anything to the party ?
    Thought of the day :
    No sense being pessimistic, it probably wouldn't work anyway

    Presumably .flv & .swf should play - if they're local files you may need to install Lighty Web Server from Preware to view them in your browser.
