Re: does mini 9 run 720p?? - 02-28-2009, 02:49 PM
That being said, I think some people have "tricked" the Mini9 into displaying 720p content - but I don't think you're getting the full HD experience there.

Ive tried playing a couple 720p x264 mkv's through VLC on my mini. No success, it plays, you hear the audio, but it drops frames like theres no tomorrow. I think after installing osx and so forth, the mini just doesnt have what it takes to decompress the container and display the video.
I've also tried 720p flash content from youtube without any luck, just starts locking up. That was worse than VLC, since I actually found it hard to move the cursor around while doing that, i was scared the Mini 9 would lock up completely.
On a side note, that was all just to push my luck, i never expected any of it to work. Whats the point in 720p on any of these netbooks? Its a higher resolution than the screen handles and its unnecessarily large. Normal DivX content looks like HD content on our tiny screens. Even youtube videos look HQ on this tiny screen, they take up more than half of the screen! haha
I've read people have had luck with WMV-HD content on the Mini 9's
