This may be my fault for having to stop with the research, but did you guys ever figure out if the flip 4 mac compression from an HD source to a wmv hd file work if the file is played back on the iodata or JVC wmvhd dvd player?

If you never got results I will be doing some tests hopefully this week and I wil let you know of the results.

It should work fine - have you heard of it not working in any cases.

Of course, you'll need to stick with WMV9, as the I-O Data doesn't support WMV9-Advanced Profile.

Flip4Mac sent sample files to ioData and are waiting to hear back. Basically it's the Sigma chip that does the decoding. I hear the XBOX360 can also play WMVHD. Might be fun to check that compatibility too.

Maybe that would be a good excuse to buy one.

I've just glanced through your posts, from the last couple of weeks... I haven't noticed where you've put in your export settings. Please post them.

I really don't have settings Eric..my client keeps changing what they want in an internet file.....now they actually want flash files...so all of my research is in the crapper at this point. The windows media and flip 4 mac with the iodata issue is an old one that we were troubleshooting last year before NAB. We tried every setting that flip4mac had to get the file to play on the iodata. It seems as though it is an issue with the player and not the exporter though.

I just remembered I have the I-O Data player sitting about 5 feet from me - anything you'd like me to test?

I'm quite sure it should work - have you heard of cases where it wasn't?

Hi Ben,

I'd be willing to compress a short sample file for you to test on the ioData. Get back to me with details ASAP.

Well, it's your test. Whip up something like what you want to do, and send me a download link and I'll try it out. The only requiremnt I can think of is that it'll need to be WMV9 - I don't think the I-O Data supports VC-1 in the current implementation.

Hi Ben, any way I can contact you off forum to give you FTP info. I'll just do a couple of short 1 minute WMVHD encodes. Is about 6mbps ok for the ioData and WMVHD decode?

Hi guys,

I just got a Linkplayer, and am having the same issues with Flip4Mac HD content--- I have tried all of the setting options in Flip4Mac, and none of them play in my Linkplayer whether over the network or off a DVD-ROM.

Did anyone figure this out yet?

Thanks,
Graham Jones.
