Amiga CD32 and FMV VideoCD expansiongreenspun.com : LUSENET : Video CD : One Thread
i have an Amiga CD32 and i'm looking for the much vaunted FMV mpeg/videoCD expansion module for it. since commodore is bust, i'm wondering where i could get one. i bought the CD32 for ONE DOLLAR, brand new at a garage sale and i'm dying for that FMV module!
BTW, i live in canada, where next to no-one knows anything about the CD32.

Find your FMV module yet? CD32 $1 Dollar Wow. Tried any Amiga sites?

I have an CD32, including very nice game compilations, the FMV module of course, and an mp3 decoder, called the MAS-player, very efficient. I also use it to browse the web at times when in holidays. I can assure you that the deal is worth, the VCD quality is far better than a VHS, and as for the DVD, it's really a different thing and can't be compared. Here, the pleasure is having such an old collectible hardware still usefull for things.
I had many problems in finding an fmv.. Though there's still Amiga shops selling that www.eyetech.co.uk maybe have some units left, I'm not sure. Ebay is also a fine ressource, provided you perform a world seek.
