hey guys, I jsut read a thread on here by gallen which started out like this:
Hi fellow techists I need some help. I basically want a to build/buy a giant portable video player that can read movies off a usb or internal drive. I'd like the display to be preferably 1080p resolution but 720 will do just fine. Any help would be appreciated.
I'm looking to inform myself for my own interest on how something like the portable monitor I'm making could be made to run .avis, .mpeg etc.. from a usb.
gallen gave me the idea.. thank you gallen if you're reading this, you're a closet product innovation genius xD.
The only way i can think of is to have the usb stick be large enough to hold a very basic Os maybe? and have that be the platform that the monitor uses to run the media files?... but a usb stick holds no processing power all by itself right.. and hte interface that my controller card provides is very basic and is only useful for adjusting basic screen settings (brightness, positioning etc.)...
this has left me really curious, i hope there are some clever guys out there with a thought or two to throw my way, I have no viable idea of how to make the above mentioned work.
