[maemo-users] Playing MPEG-2 or .tivo files on N800 OS2008

I was able to convert .TiVo files to .mpg (MPEG2) for play on mplayer
by following the instructions here http://www.apecity.com/tivo/

This converted .TiVo files from my Series 2 Tivo --> XP Pro SP2 -->
N800 with mplayer

Thank you for all the suggestions.

> You may want to check out the great tablet-encode scripts available at garage.maemo.org.  I have not used them for tivo files, but have used them to convert DVDs to be played on my 770.  As it relies upon mplayer and mencoder, assuming you have the necessary codecs, you can probably convert those files to something mplayer on your tablet can play.
