I believe you are talking about the Flycase TV:

http://www.pikaone.com/en/products/flycaseTV.htm

Here is the section from the manual that may help:

SUPPORTED VIDEO FILE FORMAT
MPEG (1/2 et 4), DIVX (3, 4, 5 and 6), AVI, Motion JPEG, XVID, VOB.

VIDEO DEFINITION MAXI
720*576

SUPPORTED AUDIO FILE FORMAT
MP3 no DRM (MPEG 1/2/2.5 Layer 1/2/3), WAV, WMA V.7/V.9 Std, PDDC

I would suggest you start with the VOB Passthrough and the AVI (XVID + MP3) options.

just tried it with the settings you gave but unfortunately still no joy, maybe i’ll just have to rip with every setting and hope 1 works. thanks anyway, liz x


#6

Do you have any files not created by DVDFab that work? If so, can you share the output from MediaInfo.

I have 53 movies on there which i got from the net, the info I got from one of them is video:898kbps, 640*336, (1.905) at 23.976fps, MPEG4 visual (Xvid)(simple@L3)(BVOP),
audio:169 kbps, 48.0khz, 2 channels, MPEG audio mp3,(version1)(layer3)(joint stereo)

maybe you can tell me the right thing to use in DVDfab to get these file outputs.
thanks again, Liz


#8

the ones that don’t work are
video: 1353kbps, 992*538 (16/9), at 30.000fps, MPEG 4 visual (xvid)(simple@L3)
Audio:384kbps, 48khz, 5 channels ac-3,

this looks almost the same as the ones that do play other than the sound, so what thing is making it not work, thank, Liz


#9

My first guess is that the video width on the device is limited and it may not support AC3 audio. Try the AVI (xvid + mp3) option in DVDFab and select a resolution that is 640 or less. If it doesn’t work, please share the MediaInfo for the file that DVDFab creates.


#10

great, i tried your suggestion with success, i used the avi, xvid, mp3 and selected the 640 *— res and the copy played, however the quality was poor so i am now going to fiddle till i get the best playable copy. thanks again, for all your help, regards, Liz
