    You can request all you want but it's up to Palm when they will allow other codecs to be supported. The last SDK did not allow that function and I highly doubt the new version released yesterday will allow for it...

    Trust me, Many people want this ability not only video but audio codecs as well...

    Could someone do something like Internalz and add the plugins for the new file types?

    MP4 isn't a codec, it's a container.

    The H.264 codec inside the MP4 container is supported.

    Video – HP Palm Developer Center

    I've asked about the chances of more codecs in the future over on the Palm dev forums - frankly it's not looking good so don't expect too much in the future.

    If you're really desperate you can try the link to Premote in my signature. It's a dirty solution to streaming any video from your PC to your Palm Pre/Pixi (it transcodes video to the correct format using VLC).

    Also there is a port of FFMpeg floating around somewhere although it's been used with mixed results.

    I had to laugh at the above quote that was dated 9/29/2009! We are still waiting for Flash and many other promises that were made in the early days of webOS. I really hope that HP and Palm get it together in 2011 and release new hardware, APIs and functionality for webOS.

    I am trying to build a video player that can read all video format as a hybrid sdk/pdk app. Don't get to excited thought, because i will take some time... Hopefully the public beta will appear around february.

    Yes, but I was pointing out that MP4s can contain other video formats aside from h.264.

    I would prefer an app or patch that would play videos in sequence, like a music player

    Are you basing it off the VLC ports for iOS and Android or something completely original?

    Doesn't look like Premote is available in the App store or Preware. Has it been pulled or is it somewhere else?


    Thanks,

    See the Premote thread for my response (it's in my signature below).

    My Audiophile App runs FFmpeg on the backend as a hybrid, compiled with support for all video formats. It can be extended to play video without too much trouble. It is low on my ever growing list of things to do, but for any of the other people working on a solution, if you're stalled, or are pretty early in the process, I will be happy to help combine code bases.

    I would be willing to donate a Pre(-) to this cause.
