More Codecs Coming to the ZuneHD Then Previously Thought?
This morning @norrathreave, decided to browse around the ZuneHD’s player firmware. Nothing too exciting at first, a little MTP transfer protocol here, various PNG image files there. That is until he stumbled upon a few nice little tidbits of code in the firmware.
I found some interesting tidbits in the Zune software: .ogg 4 Content Type audio/ogg * Default audiofile, .avi @ Content Type video/audio/avi * Default videofile & .mov @ Content Type video/audio/mov
There’s also some evidence in there of Divx support. Now let’s be clear. These capabilities may be in the firmware, but you will not be able to use these capabilities until the Zune desktop Software get’s an update to allow these types of files, and we’ve heard nothing from the Zune team on that front as of yet. If I learn anything as always we’ll keep you posted.
