Amiga playing AVI, MP3 Files etc

HI

Ive just ordered an Amiga 1200 Tower with Mediator etc and OS 3.1 I think.

Can the Amiga play mp3's and avi files, if so what software do I need to play it all?

Secondly I have a pc hard disk, just full of mp3s, If I put that in my tower would the amiga instantly recognise the disk and the files??

thanks for looking

T

To play MP3 you should try AmiNetRadio : http://amigazeux.net/anr/ (freeware)
For anim files Frogger : http://frogger.rules.pl/ (shareware)
For MPEG anim Riva : ftp://de.aminet.net/pub/aminet/gfx/show/RiVA.lha (shareware)

to play mp3's you will also need mpega (aminet, if you can find a site anymore), aslo try amigamp (freeware) and amplifier (free with os3.5+)

for non mpg anims also try moovid (I found it to be better than frogger on a 68k machine)

I'll agree with riva for mpgs.

If you get a ppc system, also try AMP and FroggerNG for mpeg's

First question: Do you ordered "plain" A1200T, or "upgraded" (Accelerator/Additional Memory/Cards/etc.) one?

> Can the Amiga play mp3's and avi files,

Of course SHE (^_-) can!

> if so what software do I need to play it all?

Well, there are many various players (some was mentioned above). If you want to see bigger choice, try to find them on any AmiNet mirror (e.g. http://ftp.uni-paderborn.de/aminet/)

No, unless you have crossdos or FAT95, or other of this kind (try also on AmiNet).

FroggerNG also plays AVIs, QuickTimes (MOVs), Ogg Vorbises (OGGs, OGMs), WMV/WMA, and some others. It's AFAIK most advanced animation player on Amiga
