Description

Simple and nice player with sizing and display options, i.e view video in 4 color scales, or 65K colors, turn audio on/off to enhance performance and others.

wodeon is MPEG-1 exclusive video playback software. It also works on early Windows CE machines, especially CE2.0 SH-3 and CE1.0. However, CE1.0 does not allow audio playback.

The author wanted to learn a bit about MPEG and planned to create the simplest MPEG-1 decoder, but he didn't feel like making it on a model like Windows or Mac that has enough players to sweep and throw away. Therefore, we developed it targeting the Casio A-55V, which does not work even with PocketTV.

Changes for v1.8
Allows abortions during a netstream connection.
Fixed that garbage may remain on the screen when playing a playlist.

It feels genuinely insane that I am currently playing MPEG video with sound on my LG Phenom, even if the framerate is kind of terrible on this device (since it's only fast enough to draw keyframes for 320px high video -- I can play back a 160px tall).

I had to browbeat my files into submission with ffmpeg to play, and it took a little bit of trial and error to actually get a file that played back right.
Here's a generic command to convert videos for this, replace $1 with the filename:

ffmpeg -i "$1" -vf "scale=320:240:force_original_aspect_ratio=decrease,pad=320:240:-1:-1:color=black" -vcodec mpeg1video -ar 44100 -b:a 64k -acodec mp2 "result.mpeg"

...and here's the script I'm using to convert my videos with currently for my B/W device:

#!/bin/sh
ffmpeg -i "$1" -threads 6 -af "volume=2" -vf "unsharp=11:11:3,scale=320:240:force_original_aspect_ratio=decrease,pad=320:240:-1:-1:color=black,subtitles=$1,hue=s=0" -vcodec mpeg1video -ar 44100 -b:a 64k -acodec mp2 "$1.mpeg"

which adds an obnoxious amount of contrast, boosts the volume a lot since Wodeon's audio output is VERY quiet, bakes in subtitles, and makes the video grayscale since it's not like it's going to be displayed in color.
Probably could get it looking better, I haven't played around with it enough.
