    Internal vs external memory for he videos

    Hi have a question I just got a smart phone my first one and it s the DROID x2. I am a major anime fan. And I was reading on here people where having problems with video play back on hd video. I usually like to watch hd anime (720p in mkv x264) and when I tried to play the file it ran at in very low fps and the audio was way ahead of the video. Tried a few video players but all retain this issue. Now from what I read on here it sounded like people where using the external cards but I had them on the internal 4.33gb not the 8gb external one. My question is if I did the root and sd speed increase will the internal play it better or is getting a class 6 or up microsdhc card going to do the trick? Main reason why I was going to use my cell as an easier way to watch anime on my hdtv via the microhdmi out. It was part of the reason I got the phone. Dual core 1ghz 512mb ram for a none computer system should play it back fine but sadly this is not the case. Just wondering. Non-hd anime plays just fine. And I can live with it if I have to since my old cell could barely play an anime ep regardless of res size.

    If you rooted your phone, you might be able to get a performance increase with the SD Speed Increase app (see link in my signature). I suspect, however, that the issue is not with how much data it can pull from the SD card.

    My best bet is that you're running into a bug/issue that will need to be addressed in a patch from Motorola.

    densetsu86, we've come across some new tweaks that might be able to fix your video skipping problems... you have to root the phone, so if you're willing to do that, let me know and we can see how it works for you.

    Don't worry, I won't ask you to do anything that won't be fully reversible.

    I'll have time to put everything together tonight, but I should have plenty of time tomorrow.

    Rather than throw all the performance tweaking scripts at you, I want to start slowly with a few specific modules to see how big of an impact they make... So here's a really simple script that we can run to switch your scheduler from cfg to noop. Apparently noop handles video much better...

    1. Root your phone with Gingerbreak (APK | Instructions)
    2. Install Script Manager (free on the Market)
    3. Download the attached text file (V6_NoOp.sh.txt).
    4. Open Script Manager and browse to the script. Rename it and remove the .txt extension (Long-click > Rename).
    5. Open the script (if it prompts about how you want to open it, select 'Script').
    6. Check the box to 'Run as root' and then press Run.
    7. Load up one of your videos and let us know if it runs better, or not.

    The settings changes that the script are reverted when you reboot the phone... so no permanent changes have been made.

    ok did it but no change. is there anyway to make sure its running? i checked superuser app and it shows that script manager is on but when i did it i didn't really get a confirmation that it was running (the script that is).
    how do i freeze the bloatware cause i see over 200mb being used on stuff i don't have access to before i did the root.

    Freezing bloat is done with one of two apps... Titanium Backup (paid version only; ~$7) or Bloat Freezer (doesn't have as many features as TB but only $1). There are plenty of other freezer apps, but I have no experience with them. There are some other threads that list apps that are safe to freeze without bad side-effects.

    To see whether or not the settings are in place, download the attached script, remove .txt and run it (no root required). The output before running the other script will have [cfg] in the results... the output after running the other script will have [noop] in the results.

    If [noop] did get activated and there was no change, do the freezing (if you're willing to pay) to see if that helps. If not, then we'll see if the V6_SuperCharger makes a difference (I suspect it will).

    ok i went to droid x2 hack and memory tweaks and followed the instructions for v6 supercharger. and im using seepu and man o man did it free up a lot of memory. i have 3 quaters if not a little bit morethen that of the ram bar filled (meaning free) where as before it was always hanging around the bottom meaning mostly drained.

    so its on and its working i could not do the tweak before v6 supercharger as im missing the file in general in the data folder.

    but alas still choppy playback. is it possible to run v6supercharger and noop at the same time?

    if it is and i still get this issue it has to be an issue with froyo and the not being able to utilize tegra2 properly. heck im using sd speed increase at 3000kb and still having issues when 2048 didn't fix anything. but my phone is running faster extremely fast boot and operation.
