    Hello,

    Got to say that Format Factory is very good.

    The settings below work very well on my Magic.

    I forced the FPS to 25 as it was a PAL AVI that I was converting. the default is 18 and I dialed down the bitrate from 512 to 384 as it was a bit jerky at 512. Every other setting is default

    :)

    Stick with AVIDEMUX or SUPER.

    Do NOT waste your money buying something or get stuck with advertising laden stuff.

    You are using the wrong codec, this is why you are having trouble with framerate, choppy video, etc. For Android, MPEG-4 AVC (x264) is really the only way to go.

    I hav to be honest...I've used Handbrake for nearly 2 years now, have easily backed up all my DVDs into MKV files, and since getting Hero have converted some of my MKVs into MP4's, all without choppy playback.

    It's free, so grab it here: http://handbrake.fr

    or you could just download the mp4 files from various file sharing sites. Rapidshare have some great movie threads with about as many mp4 files as you can imagine. Not that I'm condoning illegal downloading you understand. I've been told that this is possible !!!

    it was simpler than i thought it would be.
  17. Videora Ipod Converter.

    Shame I didn't find this thread before I spent hours buggering around with Sony Vegas Pro to no avail. Then I tried Videora. It has a really ball aching interface but does the job perfectly. Even converts matroska files.

    Not sure if it relies on your previously installed codecs or not but nevertheless it works for me everytime.

    My hero so to speak. ;)

    I always use the following settings: -

    iPod Touch 2ndGen settings (H.264 480x320 768kbps Stereo/128kbps)

    Produces good quality - no lag - no jutter.

    Jutter?? lol - I meant Jitter

    This may be a dumb question, but if I want to copy some of my purchased dvd movies using any of these programs, will it work, or would I need to get a decoder first...I'm a noob when it comes to video formats and copying. :eek:

    Handbrake - Freeware - HandBrake

    Video Conversion process for Droid

    1. Select your source
    2. Select your destination output
    3. Right hand column select Iphone legacy
    4. Under Video tab select H.264 as the "Video Codec", also under output settings chose MP4.
    5. Personally I have been using 1200kbps as an average bitrate with great results.
    6. Under Advanced tab change reference frames to 1, Subpixel Motion Estimation to 8
    7. Click "Start" and your video will encode.

    I have had great results with these settings above using that freeware program.

    I'm going with this one. Right now the program is encoding my entire library. Ya, slowly, but it's doing it. And setting it up was real easy. Also, setting it to work was fast.

    Well, I am probably just ********, but I have tried over and over to download handbrake and have gloriously failed everytime. I am running xp, I get the download, but then when I go to install, I get an error, something like, "you are stupid blah blah..." sorry can't remember the exact error message, but I am trying as I type this and I will be able to post it ver batum here in a minute I am guessing. This is the one I want, anyone had any issues getting it besides me?:mad:

    edit::

    Fantastic, here it is

    NSIS Error
    Installer integrity check has failed. Common causes include incomplete download or damaged media. Contact the installers author to obtain a new copy.

    WTF? Anyone? I would really like to get this program.

    Yeah, and this lovely software will also attempt to install adware on your box: TrojanClicker:Win32/Yabector.B

    Reference: http://www.microsoft.com/Security/p...ntry.aspx?Name=TrojanClicker:Win32/Yabector.B

    Thankfully MSE castrated it on entry.

    *****Update*****

    This program is still working great. I just encoded a couple new shows at 640x480 (to preserve the original aspect ratio) and 1000kbps at 25 frames/sec and the quality is just great. So crisp, clear, no artifacts, high quality sound and video. I'm so happy I could lay down and die.
