    Anyone know the movie stats of the .dcf file? Bitrate, codec, framerate, etc.... Mediainfo doesn't tell me anything about it, and I don't know of any other utility that might recognize it. Hmm...

    I'm curious because I just compared (my wife's) Vibrant playing avatar.dcf with my (company's) iPhone4 using my custom 960x540 Avatar .m4v (which I made using the raw 44GB bluray .m2ts), and the Vibrant's .dcf just blew it out of the water. Both are tack-sharp, but it's like looking at 32-bit vs 16-bit color. When you look at the iPhone4 video by itself it looks great, until you see it next to a Vibrant, then you realize that some colors on the iPhone4 just don't reproduce with much accuracy. Then there's the contrast ratio... holy crap. Can you say "true black"? The Vibrant is amazing. The super AMOLED just seems to blow their LCD away... and their IPS LCD is more advanced than any TFT LCD to date, yet the Super AMOLED just kills it. Do yourself a favor if you just bought an Android phone with an LCD and DO NOT look at the Galaxy S line. You will have buyer's remorse.

    Anyway, I'm getting ready to encode a new file (800x450 mp4) directly from the raw 44GB bluray .m2ts file to fit the native resolution of the Vibrant (800x480), then do a head-to-head comparo video. Both files will be in H.264 (AVS video converter v6.4) in the interest of keeping it a fair fight, but I fully expect the mp4 that I create to look even better than the included .dcf. If anyone's interested in the comparo I'll post the youtube link here in this thread, assuming my newbie status allows it. :)

    I'm interested to see the comparison.

    What video conversion software are you using?

    I'm still pissed that the dcf didn't come on my sd card.

    Got my phone yesterday and it was one of the first things that I tried.

    Good luck with the encoding. I'm curious to see the difference between the two.

    Thats a 'feature' of the phone. You should be able to go back and say hey I didn't get it.

    How did you access both cards at the same time? I dragged it to my PC, replaced card and then dragged it back to the new card.

    Is there an easier way to do it?

    I know it is... I have been a duc fan since the 916 came out... untill the 999 days (I hated the 999) and now the 1098/1198 looks so much like a 998... I frekin love the new bikes. I have a 900ss tho. I want a new bike soon though i like the look of the 1098 over the 1198 but I want the more power lol.

    Handbrake crashes on me too! I'm running 64-bit Win7 on a quad-core extreme 3.2 w/ 4GB RAM, can run Prime95 torture test all night without a hiccup, so I don't know.... maybe there are Apple forces in effect trying to keep me from publicly flogging their iPhone4. :)

    I love the 1098/1198! It's what the 999 should've been... I hated the 999 too..... what's a South African guy doing designing an Italian bike anyway?

    Bitrate's not a problem, if you use the info from the trailer (also on the phone)

    Video:
    Bitrate: 1271kbps

    Audio:
    Bitrate: 67kbps
    Channels: 2
    Audio Sample Rate: 44kHz

    Still trying to dig up the CODEC info.

    That's funny... I never even looked at the trailer. Thx for the heads up.



    When I played the .dcf side-by-side with the iPhone, the playback speed was faster on the Vibrant, if I remember correctly. It's probably encoded at 29.97 fps. Now that they're both 23.976 fps it shouldn't be a problem.
