iPlayer could play AVI, Flv, RMVB directly, is more convenience than the homebrew Moonshell, which could play DPG format videos only. Using iPlayer, you just need to copy the videos you want to the TF card. in consideration of playing AVI directly on DS by hardware decoding, we suppose there must be a high basic frequency onboard CPU in the cart, which should more powerful than the CPU of PSP, so in my opinion, launch all the main console simulator is possilbe.
Beside the video playing, the trailer also reveal that iPlayer could be used to launch homebrew on DS. No doubt this point support my view above, meaning the DLDI is opened, so fans could develop their own homebrew on it. Even more, a few days ago AK homebrew author stated he was interested in trying to make it supporting commercial roms. All of these really make me excited.
After all, these just are my speculations. When iPlayer finally out, we should know electric energy consumption of the onboard CPU, the video playing quality, and the price.
The high basic frequency onboard CPU of iPlayer realizes our dream of playing AVI on DS directly, then will launching of GBA simulator on DS also come true? I am expecting it, faithfully.
