    Update on DFC 420's video hook up: video now works great!!!!! i've messed around with the various sizes and all of them work perfectly straight through. controls are fast, especially the pause and replay (let it play for about 30 seconds before you use the forward and rewind buttons. i notice they work fast that way). and with 178x144 i can get about 15 sitcoms (22min each) on a 1gig sandisk card) and with 352x288 (full screen with controls) i can get about 9 (comes in really crisp at this size. I loaded up a full movie on that size and it plays right through with no problems). erase all your mp3s/jpgs from your pearl and load up on video!!!!. just ordered another 1gig card to start my mini sitcom library.

    Where are you downloading your videos from? And what format do you search for?

    Re: Got Video working on 8100 good

    Hi everyone,

    Wanted to share another method I found on another forum (no credit here)... I havent tested but according to the feedback this works very well...

    Will output to an mpeg4 .avi file:

    Download the MPlayer encoder from here:

    http://www.mplayerhq.hu/design7/news.html

    (Sorry for the "DOT" not a stack level 2 member)

    I would reccomend the KR or SE version because its a ZIP file (same content as US).



    You don't need the codec pack for encoding to the proper format for the 8100

    Then in an MS DOS window encode with:

    Code:
    mencoder -vf scale=240:180 <input file> -o <output file> -of avi -ovc lavc -oac lavc -lavcopts vcodec=mpeg4:vbitrate=230:acodec=mp3:abitrate=64
    Note that with the above code, the <output file> has to be an avi, but the <input file> can be just about anything you can play on your computer.

    Also Note that if your input file is widescreen, this will compress it down to Pan-and-Scan ratios. You can play with the "scale=240:180" option for widescreen input and output.

    According to the source this "Works like a dream".

    Re: Got Video working on 8100 good

    ^ Sorry about the link with the "DOT" and "FORWARD SLASH" nosense


    I just tested it... this is what I have notice so far (oh and sorry if this method had been posted before... didnt see it)...

    I did a music video (Kanye West if you are curious)...

    Using the first method it work fine, look good... as the forum states... but I must admit the second method might be the way I choose to go... for the following reasons...

    The video is 3:26 minutes and using the first method the file size is 13.22MB but using the second method (with the reccomended options/settings) the file size is 7.70MB

    The video quality at least to my eyes aren't too different... both look very well... maybe I will notice a difference when converting a different video.

    Also the second method uses up the full screen (minus of course the control part of the screen)... but with the first method I couldnt see the full video (some of it would be cut off... the bottom)

    Sound quality... the second method is louder, crispier... better sound.

    The controls are the same using either method. Also the audio and video weres sync'd using either method.

    Hope this help... feel free to test and post your opinions.

    Re: Got Video working on 8100 good

    I was waiting for a cable car last night. I played a video on the 8100. There were three guys standing in the background, all getting off work, who kept sneaking a look at my Pearl playing a movie.

    Even at night I could see their faces were green with envy.

    Re: Got Video working on 8100 good

    Did everything like DFC420 said and everything works great. Had problem with size of video tho (small 512Card). Used pocket DVD studio Palm to compress and then super to decode file and evrything looks great. I was just wondering why cant I decode Itunes downloads. Ive paid for them whats the deal. Is hier a way?

    Thanks for all the tips. I just converted my DVD copy of iRobot...really cool playing it in the BB 8100. I hope RIM will come out with a fix for the 1gb miniSD limit...

    Re: The Original: Video encoding for the 8100

    doing one right now... how long is this supposed to take? obviously there are many variables that dictate time. In rough terms, are we talking an hour... or overnight?

    Thx -r3ck

    Re: The Original: Video encoding for the 8100

    Not sure if my last question made it through? Has any one used bb8100 with tivo plus converted movies/ tv shows?
    Formats supported are PSP, palm treo 650, Nokia n80, H.264, and MPEG-4. Which one is best and which one will play on the bb8100.
    iIf you need to still convert, which one convertes EZ. How would you convert it.
    Thanks,
