Oh Maemo 5 and Nokia N900 – You never cease to surprise. RT’d by @johnnybrasco @MeeGoExperts has found a very awesome video by mohammad7410 of the brilliant Nokia N900 playing a DVD disc over USB Host mode.
Playing DVDs on the N900 with a modified kernel and a custom mplayer build.
Thanks to the hostmode team, including but not limited to:
and the rest of the team mentioned on:
h-e-n project page: https://garage.maemo.org/projects/h-e-n/
(Note: video is playing solely on CPU power, mplayer is not accelerated by the PowerVR, which explains the framedrops)
OK so now imagine the whole mobile computer scene. Bluetooth/USB keyboard/mice – HDMI monitor connection and CD/DVD connectivity.
