WebDT with some neat WinCE apps

Postby Fleegman » Fri Mar 27, 2009 5:44 pm

Here's a YouTube video of my WebDT running the included WinCE 5.0.  I was able to find some very useful CE apps that actually work on it.  Once I get NimbleX on it, I'll post a new video.

The link below will force the YouTube video to play in HD mode, so enjoy!

Thats awesome! Where did you find those? All I could find were links to places that said they had CE apps but they really only had smartphone apps.

Seriously seeing that full screen video inspired me to build a front end to mythtv. Dont know if it works but I just posted it. Thank you for sharing that! Can I ask what the video was encoded at?

What I did was I ripped my own DVD onto my system, and then I re-encoded the DVD into a suitable format for playback on the WebDT running WinCE.

I've done dozens of encoding, and below is the absolute best encoding method for the WebDT on CE:

WMV8 for Broadband (PAL 700 Kbps)

352x288, 636 Kbits/sec, 30 Frames/sec

WMA 16 bit Stereo, 44.1 kHz



If you encode using those settings, you'll get that smooth playback that you saw in the video, and it looks even better in real life.

All those nice apps that you've seen me running on my WebDT366 from the YouTube video are now available for download in a quick and convenient spot.  I've uploaded them all to my filesharing account.

You can find the link to those files here:
