    Ive tried quite a few different video converters at different settings and nothing seems to work (suggestions from this forum and others like xda) Its always the same jerky playback. Although Ive noticed that if I play the full clip and then restart it, it would play just fine.. What gives???


    I have an unbranded unrooted desire. Any suggestions :(

    I assume you're talking about third party videos, not ones that you've recorded with the built-in video recorder? The settings that work for me are:

    Video codec: MPEG4
    Video size: 720 x 480
    Frame rate: 15 fps
    Video bitrate: 700K
    Audio codec: AAC
    Audio channels: 2
    Audio bits: 32000
    Audio bitrate: 64K
    Output file type: 3gp

    Here's the command line I use with ffmpeg under Linux:
    ffmpeg -y -i $1 -vcodec mpeg4 -s 720x480 -r 15 -b 700k -acodec libfaac -ac 2 -ar 32000 -ab 64k -f 3gp $OUTFILE

    There's also a Windows version of ffmpeg: FFmpeg for Windows Help

    Hey thanks for your suggestion. I tried it and yes it played with less lag, unfortunately video quality is really poor compared to the buggy hidef videos I converted. I also tried using different video playback apps like act one and meridian to no avail.



    I honestly dont get it.:thinking:
    Is my device defective??
    Can this issue be resolved if I rooted my device??
    Do i need a task killer?? ( I've read numerous post discouraging the use but if it helps I'll take it, hell I'll even pay for it.)

    That's how much crappy video playback bugs me:mad:
