PowerDVD : a player for DVD, VCD and SVCD, can support hardware acceleration of chipsets ATI. Use it's filters with Zoom Player for very good working of hardware acceleration.

 

Downloads:

Driver XP/2000  ATI Rage M1 5795 (see link * section) : modified by me, can support 1024*480, D3D, OpenGL, VGA and TV outputs, rotations and support of "Motion Compensation" for DVD and DIVX playback. Power management and set keys work fine with it ! (require a manual installation). Only the Scale mode is unsupported (Make lowers resolutions to full screen), if you are any info about it, contact me please.
Ffdshow codec: with this you can play all divx version ! with half CPU frequency of 300 Mhz !! work only if you not use "Post-processing level" and video driver 57xx.
QuickRes NT : a tool for change screen resolution, it's funny on TV Output, like 640*480 mode for exemple. Place it in the start group.
 
 
 
Tips:
 
Fn + B : activate the bass boost for headers output
Fn + 5 : beep ?
