Just a short result of my experiments with playing AVI movies on stock Atari Falcon 030 (4Mb of RAM, 16Mhz CPU). Many thanx to BeetleF060 for his article in "LowRes" magazine.

After testing long files, I can tell You Falcon 030 4Mb can play FULL movies but only when the AVI files is splitted into 2 halfs. Still - it works. :)
Btw, it should have been mentioned that most of a job is being made by DSP processor (32Mhz but addressing only up to 96Kb).

It can scale the movies into a fullscreen mode (in VGA) or show them centered in original resolution (on TV/RGB) which gives about 1/4 of the screen - but then pixels are small. :) So it depends on one's personal likes/preferences.
