I was in the market for a small and easy to use HD Media player that would simply loop some media files for me. I wanted to play my AtmosfearFX files without having to put a dvd player or equally bulky item outside somewhere near my TV. I saw a few HD media players on Halloween Prop sites but they wanted almost 200 dollars even for just a simple one that did nothing more than play a video, no trigger inputs or anything of the such. I came across this Micca Speck on amazon and after reading the reviews decided to buy it, and I couldnt be happier! This little guy was cheap and works like a champ. Check out the little video I made for it
So what are you using to rip your dvds to this player? This and that 3M projector make a cool setup.
I am using two programs actually, first I rip the files using AnyDVD from slysoft then I refomat them into mp4 files using cloneDVD from slysoft as well. I am going to be buying the cables that will allow me to connect the 3M projector to this and see how it works that way as well!
Thanks! This is set up is just what I’ve been looking for.
No problem glad I could help! Let me know how it works out!!
Does it have a way to trigger? If not, have you seen one that could easily be adapted to loop a video or still frame and then trigger an animation and go back again? Cheapest one I’ve seen that I know does this is $189 from a haunt store. Thanks!
Also, any recommendations for a TV? What size are you using there?
In this project I’m using a 22inch which seems to be a good size for a portrait and easy to find a frame that should fit
No sadly it doesn’t have a way to trigger but it will auto play upon power up but I think it shows a menu real quick before it does. I will have to mess with it to know for sure. Yeah all of the ones on haunt sites are really expensive which is why I picked this one!
