using 16m color in vedio playback

Recommended Posts

Hi there. I have some questions about the capabilities of the Omnia Pro when it comes to display colour depth and video playback. I apologise for the painfully newbie-ish nature of these questions.

The Omnia Pro is always listed as supporting "65k colours" only - it's a Windows Mobile 6.1 device, after all. However, I've read that it's upgradeable to WM 6.5. Does WM 6.5 permit colour depths beyond 16-bit?

I've also read that it is possible for an app like a video player to get around the 16-bit colour limitation in WM6.1 by using DirectDraw overlays. Is this correct?

And finally, if either of the above methods (overlays or WM 6.5) can potentially give access to colour depths beyond 16-bit, is the omnia Pro capable of supporting this, or are there limitations (in the hardware, the drivers, or the TFT panel) which prevent it? And, if it can do it, what's the maximum physical colour depth the device can achieve under those circumstances?

Edit: oh, and if the overlays thing does work, which video player apps support the use of overlays?

Even in 6.5.3 builds the 64k color restriction exists. To make things worst, most ROMs(stock and custom) made for our devices use windows mobile builds that dithering isn't exactly working correctly and every gradient have 'steps'. This is really noticeable in ROMs with sense.
