I suspect it was built for a specific version of Direct X. I tried running it on two machines, on one it played music but no video... on the other it wouldn't run at all.
Apache_lives - on a machine with the right dx install - you don't need a player to play the video. However... Direct X does provide a LOT of support code that the example requires to work, so you're right that it's not REALLY 4k.
I recall when the trend of making these sorts of procedural graphical apps started... there wasn't dx or dynamic libraries, the apps had to render to the device. They were still VERY compact, but not 4k compact.

I have Norton360, and it does not see any virus or trojan in them
However, I can not start this file on my GMA945GM powered notebook. I get an error message.
[citation][nom]ProDigit80[/nom]It probably needs MS .net framework installed too (which I purposely not installed, because it saves space, and increases system response time when it not being installed.Many programmers program with C++ or something alike, and need .net framework for their programs to run.citation]
It shouldn't, unless the program uses .Net it doesn't need it and unless you manually (ASM) create the EXE you won't be able to get an EXE less then 1kb.
This reminds me (as others have stated) .theprodukkt, wish they would release something new.
I remember the 64K demoscene - that took some real talent, making wicked 3D demos within a single memory segment in DOS. That took some true coding. I imagine these 4K demos, impressive as they may be, rely HEAVILY on DirectX or other outside API. The oldschool demos were both the code and the API. Still, impressive
As for Norton, I'd rather have a virus on my system than any expensive Norton bloatware. It's probably flagging a common compression or encryption technique used by trojans and viruses too. Shame.
Love it!!!! My already "compressed" 720p movies take up like 6-8GB each. The computer industry has needed reduced file sizes for a while. Everything keeps getting bigger, especially game installs (my God, GTAIV is like 16GB!!! That's an OS!)
THIS SHOULD BE what the future of storage is about .
sure it is cool to ahve a wooping system crampped with 6 1 tb drives (or 6 2 tb drives)
and the idea of holographic disk that ohold 14 tb's on one disk is cool but i think the real progress can be made with the code and software it's self
4 minutes into 4 kb
do teh math on say a 96 minute movie (1 hour 36 minutes ) a vairly common movie length
96/4 = 24k
you are talking aobut fitting a full HD movie on storage that is hundreds of times smaller than even the age old CD (which is about 700 mb) if this sort of tight coding could be come standard it would revolutionie the way we think about storage capacities ... perhaps they were right when they said a 1 gig drive was all we'd ever need back in 1994 ?
