Cowon Updates O2 to v1.24

cowon o2 dnp Cowon Updates O2 to v1.24

Every time Cowon releases a new product it marks the start of a years long process of actually making the player stable. This was also the case with the O2, which was released with more issues than it had pixels. Cowon just released a new firmware update and this time they actually fixed something.

The most noticeable change is a video fix that allows for videos above 720p to be played. A number of other video related fixes were also made to improve overall stability along with improvements and fixes to other aspects of the player. Hit the link for full change log and download link.

It still doesn’t play most 720p content. All MP4/MKV/h.264/WMA/etc HD stuff is still choppy or doesn’t play at all. I only had good results with 720p XviD – a codec which unfortunately isn’t used much for HD encodes (mostly for stuff up to DVD quality), so it doesn’t make that much sense in that context.

A very similar display to the iriver Lplayer. Just a fatter obese version.

They look similar – with the Lplayer certainly being the fatter of the two, proportionally speaking. But other than that they don’t really have much in common, on the inside.
