    8900 AVI file issue

    Advertisement



    I want to be able to take my AVI files and just play them.
    And I was doing that until about 2 days ago. I had put like 2 AVI movies on my bb and they worked just fine. Then all of a sudden they don't work now.
    Any ideas on this?
    Cheers

    Not sure why? I have a movie on mine its in 3gpp format and it hasn't gone anywhere. HTH you can download a free converter that converts to 3gpp at download.com

    i just download and used Super a video converter(does all kinds of video convertions)

    http://www.erightsoft.net/SUPER.html

    these are my specs when converting for my 8900

    1. avi
    2. DIVX
    3. MP3

    4. 480x360
    5. 16:6 or 4:3(I prefer 16:9 then if you're converting a widescreen video/movie it won't look stratched.)
    6. 29.97fps
    7. 576 bitrate kbps
    8. sample freq 48000
    9. Channels 2
    10. bitrate kbps 96/128

    drag and drop any video file you want to convert wait and BAM you have a converted video.

    if you have a better way please post on.

    For my theme blog, remember....

    AVI is just a container for the files depends what encoding the files have been encoded with.

    Depending on what encoding was used to make the AVI files then the 8900 media player should be able to play most codecs out there.

    divx, xvid, etc etc

    As for converting, you shouldn't have to anymore with the newer versions of the operating systems.
