    I have searched for this topic but no luck.

    It seams to be the case that PS2 reality player won't play avi's that are larger that 650MB in a flip-top PS2.

    So my question is, what program can i use to resize my avi's to less then 650MB?

    Someone suggested "keep the video size and reduce audio to 32000 hz 56 kbit "

    Would this work? and if so how do i do that?

    Cheers

    I've been looking round and discovered nomod patches?

    Patches that will allow DVDrips over 650MB to work on flip-tops.

    Is there a patch to allow the reality player to play avi's over 650MB?

    maybe what you can do is cut the movie file in half. Then you could put both halfs of the movie on the cd. I believe that reality player cannot play movies over 650mb but the cd can be over 650mb with more than one movie file.

    Have you done this successfully?

    What program do you use to "chop" the avi in half?

    dudes its nothing wrong with reality player.. fliptops just will not load cd's over 650mb CD's If you want to load CD's over that you will need a modchip

    that would also be good. I dont know a lot about dvd-r because i dont have a dvd-r burner. Go here http://www.dvdrhelp.com/ for all the help you need about dvd-r and vcd's and stuff like that.

    Tried splitting the avi into 2 and the 1st avi played fine, but the 2nd didn't play.

    I put them on the same disc so it must be that the 2nd avi was still over the 650 MB limit on the disc.

    So, as said above, Swap Magic won't play any data over the 650MB mark on the disc. :(

    WHY IS THIS?


    What about resizing the avi file so it's smaller that 650MB?

    Is there a way to do this?

    Maybe changing the sound quality slightly, or the resolution, or image size?

    What program lets you edit all these things?

    NO it will not help if you resize the movie! It doesnt matter if you have 1mb of movie on it! Swap magic will still not boot CD's over 650mb! because on CD's over 700mb the tracks on the CD are packed closer and the CD laser in the playstation does not know it since 650 is default (No PSX or PS2 games are on CD's over 650mb). So it starts reading in 650mb mode. but since the tracks are closer packed on a 700mb CD there will ofcourse be an error. The only way to get the laser to read on 700mb CD's is to install a modchip. get it?

    But it does work if the avi file is smaller than 650MB because i have done it. I just want to resize the avi file from a 737MB to a 650MB or under, then it will work.

    The way 've got it to work is booting using swap magic cd version, with avi file at 638MB, using PS2 reality player.

    It won't work if avi file is over 650MB.

    I'm burning onto a cd, so i use cd swap magic to run it.

    All i need to do is get my avi files below the 650MB size, and it will work.
