Default .pyv player

I downloaded Media Hub to my Vibrant.

I, in turn, downloaded a movie from it.

The extension on the file is .pyv. Is there an app I can download to play this?

what little I found says that it is a file extension for Microsoft PlayReady files.

This new Samsung Media Hub seems to have these movies you can download, but they have this .pyv extension.

Is this something that will be available on 2.2, when it comes out, or is there a PlayReady app out there somewhere?

Cant you play the movie in Media Hub? I thought that was the whole point of media hun, was to download movies and music straight to your phone. What good would that be if you couldnt play them...

Seems like an old thread here but hey I'm new and stupid... The latest Vibrant come with Avatar in pyv format and seem to play them 'native'. Now MediaHub did come preloaded but I'm not sure what player is used as of yet. Perhaps someone more familiar can add more value, I'd be interested to know.

Default Anyone figured this out yet?

Is there a way to convert movies to this file type so you can watch movies on your phone?

Apparently it's some obscure Microsoft DRM video format. I had never heard of it before this thread either.

Anywho, I moved this to Android media, and free bump just in case anyone knows of a player.

Default Converting DVD files for Android play

You can convert any DVD movie file to play on your Android phone using Handbrake.
Requirements:
Installed copy of Handbrake software
Video files and or DVD of your choice
(For this example I am using the Galaxy S 4G)

Launch Handbrake. In the menu on the right-hand side, select the iPod Legacy preset. Select your video source by clicking on the Source dropdown menu. Create a destination folder with name for the file once it has been converted. Confirm that the container is set to MP4 File and that Large file size, Web optimized, and iPod 5G support are unchecked

Next, adjust Handbrake's Video Settings:
Picture Tab - Uncheck Keep Aspect Ratio. Then set the Width and Height (the Galaxy S 4G supports a maximum of 800 x 480 pixels)
Video Tab: Confirm the Video Codec is set as H.264 (x264), Framerate (FPS) should be set to Same as source, Under Quality select the Avg Bitrate (kbps) and change it to 1500.

Next, adjust Audio Settings:
Audio Tab - Confirm the Audio Codec is AAC (faac), Mixdown should be set to Stereo, Change the Samplerate to 48, Change the Bitrate to 160.

If youíre going to do this again, SAVE AS PRESET - Click on the Presets menu and select New Preset, give it a name (I named mine Galaxy S 4G in the dialog box) and click Add. This will now be saved as a preset and listed on the right hand side in Handbrake to be used in the future.

Next, Convert the video. Click on the Start button in Handbrake, a command line/DOS window will open and start to process the video conversion. Once the conversion is done, mount your phone on to your computer via USB. Once mounted, create a folder named Video in the root folder on your phone. Copy converted file into the Video folder.

That's it! The converted video can now be played on your phone.

A few things to keep in mind when converting video: Most phones donít like video file sizes over 2GB (the settings in Step II should help insure that the file size is kept under 2GB). Your converted video will only be as good as the source video. If your source is over 800 x 480, you must be sure to set the width and height to a maximum of 800 x 480 as noted above.

Enjoy! Jaknife

Handbrake error when selecting Galaxy S 4G .pyv file: No title(s) found. Your source may be copy protected, badly mastered or in a format which Handbrake does not support.
