So the codecs didn't fix the problem with the avi file? just get the GUI
ok, getting there. Now with downloading that version I can do .wmv. Worked perfect. But converting avi files still gives me just the sound. Any other ideas?
What instructions are you following?
the one's posted at the beginning of this thread.
Hmm, all my movies are avi's so I'm not sure what else would be causing it. Are you trying to play the converted video on your pc or your droid?
tried both. The wmv converted and works on both, but the avi never encodes. You can tell cause the CMD window just hangs on encoding and never shows the percentage complete changing like it did when I converted the wmv. I used exact same settings for both, just changed the source and the output file name. I've tried several avis all to the same result. Maybe a different codec? When I downloaded the one you recommended, it took me to FFDShow, correct?
The codecs I told you to get were for playback puropses. For converting you should still use the h.264
I just tried a free AVI to MP4 converter from Doremisoft and it worked perfect. Only bummer is I can't resize with that software, but that should rule out codec issues. I think Handbrake is probably just weak.
Yea that's what the codec is set for in HandBrake "H.264". Oh well. I really appreciate the help JB4times4. Thanks! At least I can do WMVs now.
hmm, glad you got it.
Hrm, I'm a bit perplexed at your problems. Let me try an avi though. I can't believe that Handbrake can handle HD quality H.264 and not a simple avi.
I'll get back when the conversion is done.
I have had no problems with avi's so thats why I'm out of ideas as well.
weird. Maybe it has something to do with the codec I used when making the avis. I tried a different AVI I downloaded and it worked. Seems like HandBrake is picky.
All mine are either xvid or divx. What was the one that didn't work and did work?
Your Right... Simplicity Man...
The one that didn't work was cinepak. Which was also compressed about 6 years ago. I don't have the vid anymore that did work.
Yeah, so no problems here with .AVI. It actually turned out quite good
MEGAUPLOAD - The leading online storage and file delivery service
It maybe a codec issue. I've always been a big fan of CCCP. Maybe you should give that a try over the K-lite.
CCCP - Combined Community Codec Pack
well something that old is most likely not going to have support anymore.
one more... is there a way to access the video player on the droid without having to load the camera, than switch to vid, then hit the picture icon, then hit... then hit...
Go into the gallery.
Better yet, download Astro.
You can skip the thumbnail loading, and if you have a lot of videos that you can't recognize by thumbnail preview, you can actually see the file names
I use video player. it's as basic as it gets, which for me is a good thing.
Ah, the gallery works good. Anyone know how to turn off the gui that pops up over the video every time you load one?
Astro is cool, but I like the thumbs, and it's less driving through folders to get to where I want.
I tried Act1 video player but it was choppier than droids default player.
Just tap the video once.
was hoping to change a preference, though that helps. Thanks Fab!
