I am thinking of buying this player from Asus.Will cost Rs 3500.

ASUSTeK Computer Inc. - Multimedia- ASUS O!Play Mini

I am not a techno guy.So i have a question.The one of the video format it supports is H.264.But all MKV i find on -- link removed -- is X.264.So will it play them?

Also an opinion about it will be very useful.

Thank You.

a) x264 is an encoder only & encodes video into the h.264 standard.
b) h.264 is a standard the same way MPEG-2/3/4 is.
c) x264 encoded video can then be watched using a h.264 decoder such as CoreAVC.

So yes, anything that will play H.264 will be able to play video encoded by the x264 encoder, but they will probably only be able to decode a subset of what x264 could create. Thus if you make sure not to go beyond the supported profiles when you encode things with x264 you'll be fine.

I do have O! Play mini ( not the plus). It does play this format. Infact I have not come across any format that I tried and this mini didn't play.Go for it, it is a good one.
