    If u want, you could send me the video and I'll convert them for you...

    Dunno how you would send it to me though, as email has size limitations.... Maybe if u happened to have ftp??? PM me

    Get the latest version of Super C.


    These are the settings i use to have them full screen and these settings give me the smallest file size while still keeping movies at a descent resolution.

    1- Select the output container: .avi

    2- Select the output video codec: MPEG-4

    3- Select the output audio codec: mp3

    4- You may select ff mpeg OR MEncoder: My preference is ff mpeg

    5- Disable Video and Stream Video " UNTICKED "

    6- Video Scale Size: 320 X 240

    7- Aspect: 4:3

    8- Frame/Sec: 23.976

    9- Bitrate kbps: you can select up to 768 but 576 works for me, as it's less choppy and runs smooth all the way through.

    10- Options: All ticked

    P.S. VERY IMPORTANT, when you hit the ENCODE button, another window comes up. Select DIVX - All DIVX Players compatible. Let me know how this works out for you guys.

    I think the ultimate format is 3gp, which is optimized for mobile. I use mobiola but have yet to figure out how to convert avi files -- but I can convert youtube videos, which is great.

    Re: how to make avi files play on my 8300

    thanks i'll try the super c and see how it works. i found a converter to change the flv files to avi and then found a program called blackberry video converter. it works on my 8300, but i can tell there is alittle lag time in the videos. i'm an A/V installer and lag time is not exceptable. LOL anyway i'll try the super c tonight and let you guys know if it takes out the lag time.
    thanks again for all your help

    Mobiola has worked great for me with AVI and Youtube. Just drag and drop the files or Youtbube link into the application, and it does the rest. No settings to worry about. You select your Blackberry model, and it converts it to .3GP. Works awesome.

    Re: how to make avi files play on my 8300

    Having some issues as well. I used the Roxio Media Manager to convert some shows and while one of them played fine, I get an error on the rest. The thing is, when I look at it through the media manager, it plays fine

    Anyone have any insight?

    Re: how to make avi files play on my 8300

    I use the Black Berry Video Convertor from here: http://www.seabyrdtech.com/bbvideo

    I belive you have to rip the DVD first. For that I use Magic Video Ripper, which I had to pay for, but it was well worth it for me since it rips DVD's straight to mp4s. I mainly use it for videos on my IPOD.

    With Blackberry Video convertor you can take your mp4's or wmas or whatever and rip them into smaller AVI files.

    It has worked pretty good so far.


    Hope this helps.
