MPEG-4 With The New Flask 4.1: Almost DVD Quality


Using the new Flask 4.1/DivX 4.01 codec, the THG lab produced videos in MPEG-4 format. We found it to provide more speed, comfort and features.

The new Flask 4.1 shows significant progress and improvement over previous versions. It allows the adjustment of image brightness as well as the audio volume. Of primary importance is the high degree of user-friendliness, with clear graphic menus,...

MPEG-4: FlasK MPEG/Divx's Improved Coding


Creating CD-ROM copies of your DVDs just got a lot easier to handle - we've tested the new FlasK MPEG and Divx versions. All AMD and Intel CPUs are supported now!

The new version of FlasK MPEG still has some deficiencies - in Windows 98 SE, the maximum file size is limited to 4 GB. Files grow very quickly to this size if several VOB files are combined on the hard drive when ripping a DVD-ROM. Another of the new...

Among the MPEG technologies used in practice, the current MPEG-4 offers the highest efficiency during encoding. The main reason is ACE (Advanced Coding Efficiency) - an encoding algorithm that is used in MPEG-4 for the first time.The object orientation...

DOA (NOT from Newegg)


I don't trust the brand to try to replace it with the same, considering it will be in the hands of a curious child.

None at this time

Purchased it in person at T**get for my 11 year old kid as a throw-away camcorder for him to experiment with. I did not expect it to be great, but at least something he could start off with, without having to worry about the eventual loss or breakage...

Consumer review (

jack of all trades, master of none.


It does a lot of different things but it does them all only decently at best. I wish the focusing was automatic. I wish MP3 playback was done through multiple folders so I could select songs by artist or album. I wish I could fast forward or rewind...

This camera takes photos at 1,3,5,and 8 mega pixels. Records video in QVGA,VGA,and D1 formats. Is an MP3 player. Is a digital voice recorder. Has two leds that can be used as filming light or flash light. It can play any movie you can convert to the...

It's difficult to take a GREAT picture with this camera. The 8mp mode doesn't look like what you'd expect it to. All resolutions have some blur unless both camera and subject are completely still (and distance between both is perfect >>near...
