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.

AFAIK...even Philips media player which costs around Rs.5k plays not more than 640x480 resolution. But Asus for Rs.3.6k plays 1920x1080:D

Im pretty sure Philips media player (HMP5000) supports 1080p. Which one are you talking about?
