Hello All,

I'm looking for a media player that does 1600 x 1200, and cant seem to find anything. All of the popular units only do 1920 x 1080, is there one or two I may be missing?

Im playing a video that needs to seamlessly loop on a Dell 2007Fp 4:3 1600x1200 unit.

I'm hoping to stay away from digital signage units, but they appear to be the only option at the moment.

Thanks.

Hi Jersy,

I'm not sure what you need. Do you need a device that will output to the display in 1600x1200? Or do you need a device that will play a file that is encoded in 1600x1200?

If the former, Do you need the output to be HDMI, VGA or component-video?

If the latter, can you provide a small test file?

I need a device that will output and play 1600 x 1200.

Input on the monitor is DVI, but could go HDMI (1.3) from the device to DVI without much issue. VGA and component make me hateful. smile.gif

No test file on me - I'm traveling.

Thanks.

Almost any PC currently on the market can do 1600X1200. You might even be able to get a Mac that can do that resolution.

I have an older MacMini that does it, but I was hoping for something considerably smaller and cheaper than a new mac mini. Hopefully something small enough to mount directly behind the screen, in between the screen and the wall.

Intel NUC? (Less than $300 for a Core i3 with HD4000 graphics. Just add a small SSD, memory, power cord, and an OS.)

It even includes a mounting kit for installation behind a display.

Those are nice units, but it would still be $500+ to get it up and running, which if I'm going to spend that much, I'm jut going to grab a refurb mac mini.

However, this unit may be good in the future for another install, so thanks for pointing it out.
