Stupid Video Idea: Easel

Thanks to the AMAZING Fuze Vids application, I have been watching videos on my Fuze.

 

I don't like watching it flat on a surface, and holding the Fuze is a pain.

 

I find that I can prop the Fuze up like an easel, but only on it's top; the bottom has a headphone jack sticking up.

 

If the Fuze just had an orientation sensor that flipped the screen display over, the easel form would be great!

 

I suppose I can find some trick to output the video flipped top to bottom, but that seems like actual work.

 

Just a stupid idea, but I liked it.

That's why I prefer the design of the Fuze's predecessor, the e200 series. The videos display in landscape view, and the player's dimensions make it ideal to set in a business card holder that angles it perfectly for viewing. You can set in on a desk in front of you or on the fold-down tray table in an airplane.

 

I never have liked the headphone jack's bottom location on the Fuze.

I think that is something that could be done with mencoder.  TomJensen would probably know better than me.
