So few people ever encountered the format, in practice by the end of 1997 and colour H/PC's, no one needed it. It is super easy to implement though, in terms of read/write logic.


Actually, hold your horses on the date!

Had to implement a converter for 2bit bitmaps in 2001 for my employer for the cell phone market. Specifically when this phone appeared: https://www.phonescoop.com/phones/phone.php?p=151

Well it's been a 50/50 day here in Toyland. I installed Wodeon and Hum on my 360LX. First the good news, Hum played some short mp3s very well, Wodeon choked up but I was kind of expecting such because I haven't had time to try to tailor a video to my device's meager capabilities.
As a lark I tried feeding it a video with these specifications:
ffprobe EASTER.mpg 
 
Input #0, mpeg, from 'EASTER.mpg':
Duration: 00:00:11.03, start: 0.513322, bitrate: 442 kb/s
Stream #0:0[0x1e0]: Video: mpeg1video, yuv420p(tv), 160x112 [SAR 1:1 DAR 10:7], 104857 kb/s, 29.97 fps, 29.97 tbr, 90k tbn, 29.97 tbc
Stream #0:1[0x1c0]: Audio: mp2, 24000 Hz, mono, s16p, 160 kb/s


Suggestions welcome.

Have you tried adjusting buffering settings in Wodeon? It's demanding a lot from an ultralow power monochrome display CE 2 device to play MPEG-1 and MP3 files, but letting it buffer a bit more helps in the former case.

PowerDVD/DVD Catalyst used to have a benchmark for this that produced a number that would optimise settings to enable playback on H/PC's. See the screen ratings section

Basically, ensure the resolution is native so it doesn't have to interpolate and pull the frame rate down.
