While the N700 is pretty cool for a lot of stuff (browsing, nav etc.), it seems like video playback is really where it falls down.
I can't even get a pretty small DivX AVI file to play back smoothly... the built in player refuses to play it, RockPlayer is best of the rest.
I get some interesting results with my rather jumbled collection of movies, everything including AVI, mpeg4, divx, xvid, DX50 in rockplayer starting a movie asks for hardware or software decoding.
Hardware decoding either results in a very small image centralised and not resizable or a message that the stock player cannot play the file.
Software decoding always works but can be slightly jerky. I've watched worse on the TV though
I have started a dialogue with Neil in linx support, to identify the ideal settings for videos to play back on the n700. I'll post what he suggests when I get his response.
