Hehehe :d

do i miss anything? wanna elaborate?

akao look at above chart where it says “playable format” that should answer both questions. :slight_smile:

Now now, be nice. Akao, I’m sure, was just trying express that his/her desire, as most of us are, to see it handle mpeg4. It is sad to see such a new innovative product not support mpeg4 though. Especially since there are those new chips in the market that some manufactuers are starting to use.:c

When will this be available?

Well its taking the industry too long to support DivX/Xvid/Mpeg4 standalone play+record, in my view.

It just means the Xbox will have to remain as the DivX/Xvid/mp4 player. :g
