Thread: New Version of Pocket TV
08-27-2000, 11:34 PM #11YannGuest
For PocketTV Team ;
Just to let you know that 'My Documents' directory on my French IPaq hasn't been translated as 'Mes Documents' as you say on your Web site in "Note: If you have a non-English device, the name of the folder may be different (e.g. French: 'Mes Documents')."

When running the PocketTV (ver.3 for pocketpc) installation program i get a
"there are no device compatible programs
available" message. I have an iPaq h3650.
thanks in advance,

You've stated that the Casio E-115 is too slow for Landscape mode, but how about the EM-500? Better chip (VR4122) and faster (150mhz)... any chance you guys can throw in landscape support for this little guy?

PocketTV is a great app. Thanks for making it available. But I found some problem.
Unfortunately PocketTV gets not installed correctly on German or French PocketPCs. The reason is that the PocketTV installer assumes that the start menu folder is always called \Windows\Start Menu" but it's for example called \Windows\Startmen? in German WinCE.
So PocketTV creates additional folders Windows\Start Menu and Windows\Start Menu\Programs but which are completely ignored by German WinCE. So after installing PocketTV on a German PocketPC it's just invisible for the normal user. I think this is confusing many people which are new to the PocketPC PDA and don't know how to create links manually in the correct location.
Note, I'm not asking to translate PocketTV into German (though that would be fine). I'm just asking not to code the names of the \Windows\Start Menu and \Windows\Start Menu\Programs folders statically into the installer. I'm sure there is way outlined by Microsoft to do this (like reading the names from the registry, an API function or something?). I'm not a WinCE developer but I think it is possible since most other English software which I installed on my PocketPC yet installs itself correctly regardless how the start menu folders are called. And btw. Pocket TV is installed correctly in \Programme which is the German version of \Program Files. So I guess it's possible for Start Menu too.
Thank you for making PocketTV available

PocketTV is a great product, but I've been desperately looking for stats about the maximum frame rates in different PocketPC machines to get the picture if it's possible to playback QSIF or similiar sized movies in framerates 25fps or higher in any machines available today.
I personally have HP548 and using the certain options I'm able to get around 6-7fps with VCD sized (but reduced bitrate) movies.
I mean, when finally there is a PDA that allows 25fps or higher, I'm going to store, buy that machine and 1GB MicroDrive and start watching movies with it :-)

Yep...there is a PocketPC that can do it..its called an IPAQ. 25FPS+ with a QSIF clip..:-)

The installation problem reported with Germanized Pocket PCs should be fixed in v.0.3.4.
Could someone confirm that it works now ? (we don't have a German Pocket PC for testing).

About playback statistics:
Performances depend mostly on video size and total bandwidth (for a given size).
QSIF (160x120 or so) plays 17 to 24 fps on Cassiopeia and the Jornada, and it plays full frame-rate on the ipaq.
Half-SIF (240x180 or so) plays 7 to 12 fps on the Cassiopeia and the Jornada, and it plays usually full frame-rate on the ipaq.
SIF (320x240 or 352x240) plays 12 to 17 fps on the ipaq but will play poorly on the Cassiopeia and the Jornada.
The best compromise today seems to be Half-SIF at about 350 to 400 Kbit/sec, like those on http://www.pocketmovies.net .

Do you have stats on the EM-500? It is faster than the Jornada and the E115, but definitely not as fast as the iPAQ.

On my French iPaq:
I have attempt to run PocketTV found today on Handango (File size ; 574 976 bytes) but after selecting the .mpg file, PocketTV hangs(but the iPaq is still ok). So I can't specify the version of PocketTV.
But the v.0.3.0 (File size ; 573 952 bytes) is still running fine.
The problem regarding "\Start Menu\Program" shortcut creation is present on both version.
