Hi All,

I played an KVCD-LBR on an older pentium III (400mhz, 192MB
ram, 50X CD player) and discovered something interesting.
KVCDx3 had trouble playing. The video skipped frames and of
course the audio had synch problems, but the KVCD-LBR played
without any problems. Next I'll try a friend's laptop pentium (75mhz,
75MB ram) and see what happens. If it works, then LBR has
another benefit, that older PC's can run movies and that would be
Super!!

This is an update for LBR. Just tried it on a Pentium 166mhz, 64MB
ram and it played without problems. OS is Windows 98, WMP, and
monitor 13" looked excellent.

Next test is Pentium 75mhz, 16MB ram laptop 11" monitor
Windows 95.

hey black prince,

I have a pentium 200 mhz system that plays mpeg1 fine but it won't play mpeg-2 at all.

I also have an old IBM AT 286 out in the garage but it only plays 5 1/4 floopys

Hey guys, how about an ATARI 400 with 32k ram
That's where I learned assembly language programming!
I still have that machine, and it works.
Good old times
That machine would probably play mpeg files at 10 frames per minute, not to mention that the memory it has would be filled with a couple of frames
