Very cool site, I stumbled on it through google, and wow... what a knowledge base!
Anyway, I've recently bought a super deal on an MP4 player. The Hip Street 2GB with 2" screen. It looks and feels pretty decent (especially for $30). It plays MP3s beautifully, and text files too, but when it comes to AVI videos, it refuses anything and everything I've created for it. It didnt come with any example files, and the AVIConverter it came with is no help either. I've followed many different instructions on this site for converting AVIs and had no luck. So far, viDrop is my favorite conversion tool and seems to have the best options.
My questions I guess are:
1) Has ANYONE had any luck with this specific player?
2) If someone has an AVI that works on the 2606A Rockchip, could they link me so I can see if its really me, or my system perhaps...
3) Is it possible that the media I'm converting is the problem? I have a bunch of cartoons that I downloaded and wanted to put on the player for my daughter...
4) Could it be my XViD install?
Here's what I've tried:
-I've returned the unit to the store in case it was an issue with the unit, but the new one has the same problem.
-I tried flashing the Firmware of the one I returned with the firmware from the disc it came with, and it messed it up. The "OK" button stopped working on it, so I gathered the firmware wasnt the correct one, and without the ability to get into the settings menu to enable another firmware upgrade, it was impossible to re-flash it.
-I've tried MANY conversions with all kinds of settings...
-The AVI converter it came with seems to flip and rotate the video, so I'm sure that is a needed step, but regardless... it should still play something... no?
I'm close to giving up and returning it for the measly $30...
Anyone have any ideas??
