I just listened to the difference . I've been meaning to do a comparison for ages -- now let's hope my standalone can do 48khz audio with MPEG-1...

48KHz audio works fine on my player (Pioneer DV-343) as well. It's quite logical as that's the DVD specs

@jorel: The filesize won't change because the bitrate will still be the same.

I've played my KVCDs (quite a lot) with 48kH audio on 5 different players and the all worked fine. Just one player (Universum) wasn't able to play
SVCD with 48kH (worked with SVCD/44.1 kH and VCD/48KH)

regards, ***mfb***

I can only play 48Khz sound on 3 of my 5 players
So I guess I have to stick to 44.1Khz

Don't forget to take a huge pile of different KVCDs with you to the store so you can test the players :P I know I'll have a hard time choosing a new player if my current one breaks down some day..

Actually you won't . I know some folks at a large local video outlet store, and they have KVCD demos on just about every DVD player on the store . Playing on 46" Panasonic Plasma display to small "Wega" Tv's, they're showing KVCD cuts, and people think they are seeing DVDs . It's amazing how most new models play just about any format. Maybe manufacturers are "spying" on us

Damn right they should As I'm open to experimenting anything with digital video, I definitely want to have a player that will play anything I feed into it.

This might have something to do with the fact that some manufacturers use PC hardware in their players. I know some folks that have even replaced their standalone player drive with a PC DVD-ROM drive because the PC one was very quiet These are usually the ones that are not a well-known brand and are sold really cheap. This is definitely not a bad thing..I have a friend whose Thomson standalone player won't sometimes even play standard compliant VCDs! I told him to drop by a local department store, buy the cheapest player they have and see how that works.

if you can get your hands on one, try out a panasonic rp82 or xp50. they both have the sage/faroudja deinterlacer chip and the panasonic mpeg decoder chip. i just got my RP82 and the picture is great, and it also plays just about any format from what i've heard and i know for a fact if plays KVCDx3 because i've done it.
