My previous article showcased the installation of The Core Pocket Media Player. Read it if you missed it.

TCPMP, short for The Core Pocket Media Player, has a lot of back-end options.

Video (and audio) can be played at many speeds, ranging from 10% to 200%. I just need a reason why one would do that. We have the obvious video options, such as zoom, pixel aspect ratio, orientation, quality and streams. Further more, we can choose what elements we want for our player.

Coming next are the audio options, volume, panning, mono/stereo options, preamplification, and driver.

By accessing the Settings menu we stumble upon many interesting and useful options. Use the right soft key to select the desired menu section.

Take a look at all these options and decide for yourselves how useful they are. I would recommend to pay extra attention to the buffering options, select Microdrive mode if you’re using a storage card, and increase the buffer size if videos play interrupted. Videos can be slow if the processor is too weak to decompress a heavily compressed movie, such as a WMV or MPEG.

Play with the equalizer, set the optimal audio range and levels for your headphones, and there you have a pocket cinema right in your hand.

Head over to the previous article to download TCPMP.
