Does WDTV media player works with USB Monitor E2251F WU

Hi,

as subject above asks already.....I was wondering about if in general, or may be with homebrew firmware it would be possible that WDTV mediaplayer would work with a usb monitor, for example with AOC USB Monitor E2251F WU?

I first thought your post was a prank - surely there's no such thing as a usb monitor... But I learned something new today, so thanks!

The answer is no - wdtv can't use a usb monitor for video output because it doesn't have the necessary video driver for it. Also no - I doubt the driver can be compiled for wdtv's old kernel, and even if we could you wouldn't be able to run osd output through it. The reason is that the osd is specially compiled to use hardware acceleration from the onboard hardware video decoder chip.

So, sorry, no - unless you can feed it a HDMI signal and use usb only for power

Especially with a forum username like that, you'd see a prank coming from miles away lol. But I indeed see great future with USB screens in cars (for the kiddo's in the backseat), but hey, doesn't Medion already have these cheapass DVD-carry-&-drop cinema things? :mrgreen:
