Playing a video file

Click Play to watch video files. The Video page shows the video files in the 
content area on the right side. They are organized by folders and a thumbnail 
image shows the first frame of each video.
To play a video file, click on it. The video will play at full screen. The pop-up 
control panel will appear at the bottom of the screen when you move the 
mouse. To return to the Video page, click Stop.

Capturing video

Acer Arcade allows you to capture and record video clips from other external 
devices, such as a DVD player or camcorder.
Click Capture Device on the video page and then select the source you are using 
for your video input. There is a choice between "S-video" and "Composite."
To capture a video clip, you then need to click the red record button in the 
onscreen controls.
The destination folder can be set from the "Settings" menu. 
Clicking on Advanced and selecting Settings allows you to set the quality of the 
video captured. You can choose from "Good," "Better" or "Best." Selecting a 
higher quality results in a larger file when capturing video clips.

Snapshot

Snapshot mode is available in Cinema, Video and TV modes. This function can 
be used to capture the onscreen image at any time.
A single frame image will be captured and stored in a user designated directory. 
The destination directory can be changed from the "Settings"menu.
