Is Popcorn really so weak in supporting formats?
I was satisfied A-200 user and I watched hundreds of movies on it. Over the years, I found a few formats that were completely unreadable for that device. I skipped them and stored them. Recently the number of unsupported files is growing exponentially. I guess the compression is pretty much all the same. The containers might be little different. Anyway - files with *.3gp extension are all wrong for A-200. So are many x264 encoded media files. HDV camera movies - completely incompatible with Popcorn. also plain movies shot with my Canon small camera.

I took all of that to my friend, who uses quite old /.../ (forget the name, don't want this to sound like an ad) and... suprise - works like a charm with all of that. I mean ALL. Considering a fact that his /.../ was 25% of my A-200 value - sounds kind of disappointing. Now I can only check from time to time for new F/W with a bitter face. confused
