I download music videos from VCDs - which are the biggest selling music media items in Thailand.
For every CD there is a VCD version. They outsell the CD version.
Generally the screen brightness is fine, and I have mine set at least 3/4 to the end of the scale.
However night scenes tend to be rather dark compared to a TV, even if the brightness setting is taken to the full end of the scale.
I have backed off, to the 3/4 level again.
But I think the O2 screen needs the capability of more brightness.
If there are any Thais on this forum, you can download the DAT files after conversion through a converter such as AVC (Any Video Converter) free version.
Convert the videos to WMV, as there seems to be no limit on audio quality, whereas the other formats offer a max of 128 KBPS.
Use Jetaudio to convert the files to AVI. It seems to convert everything to AVI anyway.
Having saved them in AVC as WMV files, you could now use AoA free audio ripper to rip the audio to make CDs for use in your car, wherever.
They come out just great, but oddly with a click before each track.
And why does the O2 make a click or zip noise at it downloads each video for playing? Surely it should be silent.
My LG FM37 goes from video to video *instantly - no downloading 10 to 100%. And it is silent. It can find any video the instant you click on the track name.
And why is there this screen calibration thing? The FM 37 didn't need any of that, and it deals with more complex finger motions than the O2. Not just clicking on an icon on the screen.
