I'm aware of codec packs that run on Linux-based media centres, which allow a wider range of video file formats to play back. For example, it would be nice if I could use the TMS to play some old .FLV and .DVR-MS recordings.

I was wondering whether installing one of these packs would help. Given that it would run outside of the TAP space, I expect this wouldn't work, but I thought I would float the idea.

I suspect you would need a separate media player TAP to do this. I doubt that it is possible to hack the Toppy media player to use additional codec. For some codec the SoC apparently provides hardware assistance for some codec.

If it is possible to do I would think one of the experts on the European forum would know; Getie, FireBird or jkit. It may also be an idea to check out Acade's TAPs which do all sorts of interesting things (see here).
