distantDVD 0.06b


Quick update on my front-end du jour, distantDVD. Tom over at VisualUnderground has released distantDVD version 0.06b that includes: Support for native display resolutions of; 1360×768, 1280×1024, 1280×720, 1024×768 and 800×600.

In addition to the wider range of supported native resolutions, distantdvd-006b now supports for MP4 and MKV files for highdef media and material bought from the iTunes web store.

Native 1024×768 support is a big plus for you plasma owners. Check it out at VisualUnderground.

    It does not run on my mac mini intel.
    With displayconfigx I have rescaled my display 1224 * 690
    to have a perfect display on my 32wl66 toshiba.

    Distantdvd does not seem to be able to cope with that..

    MediaCentral does the trick at the moment.
    If only they used vlc to process movies life would be perfect..

    I’m wondering if the videos played through DistantDVD on an Intel Mac Mini maintain the 5.1 surround sound? This is a question that I have not seen a definitive answer to. Thanks.

    Hi Youp,

    Could you publish your DisplayConfigx settings for your Toshiba display ?

    Thank you.

    While this has additional features, using an alias to map to a networked device holding your VIDEO_TS folders does the trick as well…
