    Could someone post screenshots or very precise details of working "Configure" settings for the x264 codec in AVIDEMUX? I have not found a combination that works for myTouch (Android 1.5). Everything produces just a black screen, although they all play on my PC.

    Please do not waste our time with talk about MPEG-4 ASP (lavc) as all this can produce is choppy video that the Android's processor cannot handle or quality so awful it makes you want to go get a Windows Mobile phone.

    Please also do not post FFMPEG command lines you guess might work. It is too difficult for users to get a current version of FFMPEG that doesn't crash every 3 seconds, and whatever you thought worked likely will fail given other people's source files.

    Thanks.

    Here are conversion options that work. We would appreciate video experts offering improvments.

    To convert Video to Android format using the free AVIDEMUX converter, do the following:

    Browse to:
    Avidemux.org
    Pick a mirror, and download version 2.5.1 or greater. If you download the zip version for Windows, you can simply extract the files wherever you wish, no install is required.

    Load your video using File/Open...
    For Video, pick MPEG-4 AVC (x264). You do not want to use MPEG-4 ASP (lavc) it will produce large choppy files that eat up battery power.

    Click Configure

    On the General Tab, choose either:
    Average Bitrate (Two Pass) or Constant Bitrate (Single Pass)
    Set the Target Bitrate to 384. You may try higher, but do not exceed 512
    Two pass will take longer to encode, but will usually make a higher quality encoding

    On the Partition Tab, deselect everything except 4x4 Intra-predicted Blocks

    On the Frame Tab
    Turn off CABAC, Pure Interlaced Mode. Set B-Frames to 0, B-frame Bias to 0, Adaptive B-frame Decision to Disabled, Turn off Use B-frames as References

    On the Analysis Tab
    Turn off Trellis Quantization

    Close this and click Filters.

    If your input video is Widescreen, add MPlayer resize, turn off Lock Aspect Ratio and set dimensions to 480 x 272
    If your input video is Standard, add MPlayer resize, turn off Lock Aspect Ration, and set dimessions to 432 x 320

    Under Audio, choose AAC (Faac)
    Click Configure and set the bitrate to 96
    If you plan to use only the internal speaker click Filters and set the Mixer: to Mono, otherwise Stereo.

    Set the Format to MP4

    Now click File, Save, Save Video and your video should be saved compatible with your myTouch 3G.

    AVIDEMUX experts, PLEASE post an ideal Custom Profile configuration file.

    If anyone can help influence AVIDEMUX to add an Android Phone setup. please do.

    Video on Google phones is far harder than it should be. People used to Windows Mobile phones can easily add software and copy a DIVX/XVID file to the phone and watch it, all this conversion should be unnecessary. Google should be making an OPEN platform like Microsoft, not a closed one like the Apple iPhone.

    Good Luck, and please add improvements you are sure of.
