A question for anyone that has received the Sony Cybershot.
As the screen is so large for playback.. I am wondering Can you use this thing as a portable media player? (convert full length movies and drop them on the card to watch)?
Had to ask... Has anyone tried this?
Also if so.. is there a headphone jack included for the playback?
I guess if you encode the video in the same format that the cybershot records in, it should work?
Yeah, i think it encodes them in mov, so i think it would work.
I'm no expert in these areas, but here's what I know. I have the cybershot DSCM1, and it records movies in mp4 format. You have to download a special codec to play them in windows media player, I used mpegable. I tried uploading a .wmvurl==http://=http:///url file to see if I could play it on my camera and it didn't recognize it. I would not recommend using the camera as a video player anyway because the batteries would go dead too fast.
If you encode the movie to mpg4 and put it on the memory stick, then it should work no problem.
BTW, isn't the DSCM1 the SHliT?!?!?
I think it's my favorite free gift so far ;)
Yes, it is.
