    Video encoding on 83xx

    Advertisement



    Hi all,

    just a quick question regarding video encoding on the 83zz. I used to use Blackberry video on the Pearl and it worked a treat. noticed that there was no 83xx option, but that the 8800 has the same resolution, so I though selecting that would do the trick. It converted fine, but appeared quite small on the curve player - definitely didn't take up the whole screen. The aspect ration is 320x240. Has anyone had any luck with this?

    Thanks stackers.

    Set your curve to play video full screen, that might help out a bit.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~i don't see why you'd have a different resolution when its said to be 320 by 240. Because reguardless of which blackberry it is 88xx or 83xx they have the same screen it should play the same size no matter what

    what kind of videos are you converting?

    did you use this thread?

    http://blackberryforums.pinstack.com...de_videos.html

    i downloaded some music videos from youtube and converted them with that thread ... some of them show up full screen, some of them don't...maybe its the way the video was made to begin with? im surely no expert

    oh...and i saved them all to avi

    Thanks everyone. Yeah maybe it has something to do with the original encoding. I used to use super but blackberry video was just so easy on the pearl and all videos fitted perfectly. I'll play around with some other vids and let you know
