Video titles

Figure 11: Video titles

Playing your media is pretty straight forward. The remote control has buttons labeled Music, Video and Photo. You hit the appropriate button and then you are given a screen that shows the media titles (Figure 11). You use the arrow buttons on the remote control to move around and then hit the OK button to start playing.

Video thumbnails

Figure 12: Video thumbnails

Only the first frame is thumbnailed which is the problem for videos that start off with a black screen. Also, there are only eight video thumbnails per screen (Figure 12). Thankfully, there is a page up and page down button on the remote.


Waiting for the video buffer to fill

Figure 13: Waiting for the video buffer to fill

Audio and Pictures play back with no problems, but when playing back videos, there is a five to fifteen second delay as the video buffers (Figure 13). You can fast forward and backwards by pressing keys on the remote, but the video takes several seconds to resynchronize and buffer with each change. We also found that after skipping through the video, the audio would get out of synch with the video.
