It's not the ULTIMATE solution, but it's the only solution i found to watch videos perfectly in my Touch HD.

Video : HD trailer 800x480 @ 25 fps : Ice Age 2
Software : CorePlayer 1.2.5
First benchmark = 87%

First step :
Re-encoding the video in 240x400 on your PC with http://www.pocketdivxencoder.net/ or http://www.virtualdub.org/
Why 240x400 ?
- the video is pre-rotated (instead of 400x240) (performance +5%)
- the resolution is exactly the half of the native resolution (480x800) (performance +60%)

Second step :
Customize the options of Coreplayer :
Menu / Tools / Colors = Native
Menu / Tools / Preferences / Video / Video output = Raw FrameBuffer
Menu / Tools / Preferences / Video / Smooth zoom = OFF
Menu / Tools / Preferences / Video / Dither = OFF (uncheck)
Menu / Tools / Preferences / Advanced / Slow video memory = check

Results (the quality of theses videos seem egal)
Quote:

800x480 : 87%
800x480 (with the options) : 95%
240x400 : 141%
240x400 (with the options) : 232%

Enjoy

Any visible degradation on picture charity and details?

Would be good if you post both clips for all to see for themselves.

Beautiful work. Thanks.

no, the quality seems the same
because the DPI screen is very high (800x480 for 3''8)

Sorry are you saying we have to re-encode a hi res video ourselves (on a pc) to half the resolution (step 1) or does the player do it automatically?

OK, the upload on Rapidshare is done :
http://rapidshare.com/files/16386623...ch_HD.zip.html

You have 2 files : the original, and the optimized 240x400
BUT YOU NEED TO change the options on CorePlayer (see the 1st post of this topic) to see the result.

Default options :
800x480 : 87%
240x400 : 141%

With the optimized options :
800x480 : 95%
240x400 : 232% !!!

Well I got to that solution a week ago, when I got my Touch HD.
But the Coreplayer options, I didn't knew.

Simpy using pocketdivxencoder is enough for me.

But thanks!

Cheers.

Nice solution...

The only problem many of us expecting the Touch HD to have good video performance without the hassles of re-encoding videos.
