    I use Handbreak and my setting give quite acceptable results (for a tiny screen and consideration for storage space, who needs high def mp4's?). My file sizes are 3MB/min so full length movies are 300MB or less. I usually only watch tv episodes, so again quality is acceptable. My specs:

    Web obtimized
    Width: 480 (keep aspect ratio)
    Anamorphic: None

    Video Filters
    All off

    Codec: H.264
    Framerate: same as source
    Avg Bitrate: 300

    mixdown: stereo
    bitrate: 96
    DRC: 2.5

    I need a brain... can't use hand break to go from my purchased DVD to mp4... says copy write issues?[/QUOTE]

    1. I use DVD Fab and back up my DVD's to my Storage Drive.
    2. Use Handbrake to convert to mp4 and copy to my Droid.

    So I can watch on the go.

    just wondering -- when you refer to mp4 i see a lot of different options and didnt know if one of the other presets would suit me better or what, the mp4 options i can use are

    iphone H.264
    iphone mpeg 4
    ipod touch h.264
    ipod touch mpeg 4
    mpeg4 video
    h.264/mpeg4 AVC video
    psp h.264

    im not familiar with what h.264 is either but i heard people talking about it so i added those -- which of those would i choose? (im assuming mpeg4 video but i want to be safe?)

    also, www.ImTOO.com has the ImTOO Video Converter, looks nice, here's some options
    Convert video and audio for iPod, iPhone, Apple TV, Xbox 360, PSP, PS3, NDS, Wii, BlackBerry phone, iRiver, Creative Zen and other multimedia devices
    Newly support Google Android phones: Nexus One, HTC Hero, HTC G2 Magic, HTC Tattoo, Motorola Droid, Motorola CLIQ, Samsung i7500

    ~thx for ne info~

    Well if you want a no-brainer preset for the Droid, the iPod Touch H.264 will do ya.
    Oh and don't be alarmed if your files are .m4v, that's normal
  7. rlittle66

    rlittle66 Newbie

    I just rename them on the fly to .mp4 before I start the process when I designate the output path it just makes it simpler.

    Well if you call an unnecessary additional step simpiler, then yes I suppose it is.

    I have a question: Why are we setting the width to 848 rather than 854 (isn't that the resolution of the droid)?

    I've used Moyea Video Converter, well-known video conversion software. I am sure it is pretty easy to use. With its advanced encoding/decoding technology, this converter supports a plenty of videos. To my surprise, it is said that this software adopted unprecedented audio and video synchronization technology, which can keep excellent output video quality to a great extent.

    All the best:)

    There is another software that makes this easy. go to Free Studio Manager - Download and download this .exe file. its AMAZING! you can take any youtube video and convert it into mp3 (called free youtube to mp3 converter) or mp4 files (called free youtube to iphone coverter but works for droid). just drag and drop files into your SD card after files are completed.

    The instructions regarding the first post on HandBrake worked for me and it only took a couple minutes to do.

    What I did was I created a folder called Videos on the E: drive (which is the droid when mounted to the computer). I then set the destination path to the E drive and clicked start on handbrake and within a minute or so it was on there. (It was a short video clip though).

    Thanks a lot for those detailed instructions.

    couple quick questions if someone would please inform me i'd appreciate it.
    1.) just wondering, i haven't tried any videos after the 2.1 update on the droid... did anything change in terms of video playback and quality (i.e. FPS, etc) because i heard of all these things about how 2.1 slowed the phone down... im just wondering

    2.) can i still use the above guide that i quoted (and does it work for any length of video)? and do i have to make any adjustments to the program I was using (imTOO video converter) for videos after this 2.1 update?

    basically, did anything change in terms of slowdown/etc with videos on 2.1? or can i just keep doing what i have been doing (when i was on 2.01) w/o making any alterations from the update..

    I appreciate any feedback! Thank You!!

    I haven't noticed any slowdown, even if there was changing how you convert your movies wouldn't help fix that in anyway so keep doing what you've been doing.

    I don't understand the issue I'm having in Handbrake. I have a full 1080p source, 1920x1080 + 16:9(it says the aspect ratio is 1.78, which is 16/9 so its reading it correctly). When I try to encode, I can't set to 848x480, even with the 'keep aspect ratio' box unchecked. It automatically changes the size to 848x352, which is nowhere near 16:9.

    848x480 isn't 16x9 but then again 848x352 isn't either.
    I'll try a 1080p really quick and update with what happens for me.

    I think 832x468 is the highest 16x9 resolution that will fit on the droid.
    to fit the max height you would have to go with 853.3333333x480
    I didn't have any problem setting it to 848x480 though, so I'm not 100% sure whats wrong there. it would be slightly distorted distorted however because the droids resolution is 53:30 or 1.76666
  22. Celeras

    Celeras Lurker

    Well I'm certainly not trying to distort the video, but to be honest I couldn't even get to noticing that point because it wouldn't let me do the resolution I wanted anyway...

    What should I shrink a 1080p video down to so its at its natural aspect ratio, but still full screen on the Droid?

    you will not be able to get completely full screen on the droid without either A.cropping, or B.distortion. 832x468 is the highest 16x9 resolution you can do and not get either of those.
  24. Celeras

    Celeras Lurker

    I found the solution.

    First things first, for a 1080p file 848x480 works fine. Selecting "keep aspect ratio" at with the 848 width automatically puts in the 480, so no distortion.

    The problem was the 'cropping' setting to the right of the resolution. On automatic, it wanted to crop 140' off the top/bottom by default... not sure why. Black bars perhaps? Anyway, setting it to custom and putting cropping out 0 gave me the desired resolution.

    Glad you got it figured out, I was doing my math wrong so really the max 16x9 resolution would technically be 848x477 but I don't think you would notice 3 pixels of distortion.
