ccMatrix Wrote:To display a XVID or DIVX logo depending on which one was used instead of just using a generic MPEG4 logo for everything. This is about skinning and skinning options not about picture quality.I think (just making an assumption here) that that was exactly his point... Why would one want to know if a movie was encoded with XviD or DivX? They both are MPEG4, they both produce comparable results, they are practically the same thing, why bother distinguish them? What exactly is the benefit to have a logo for XviD another for DivX as oppsed to have a single logo for MPEG-4?
I don't know how things are done exactly, but for instance, I don't even care if the movie is MPEG-4... All I care is if a movie is SD or HD and if it's HD, if it's 720p or 1080p. This may be just me, but this is the most important info for video files in a library. The coded used is pointless, as long as XBMC plays it, who cares to display the exact codec used for a praticular file in the library? You obviously do, but why exactly? I don't get it...
I see what you mean but I don't think there's a way to distinguish DivX movies from 10 years ago compared to the ones we have one. They are still DivX. And nowadays, DivX and XviD is practically the same thing, quality wise... Why bother distinguish them, doesn't an SD label (or something in those lines) suffice?
