    Re: The Original: Video encoding for the 8100

    Advertisement



    OK two questions:

    1. Using these directions I was able to get video files into my new 8800 and they start playing but then freeze up, then play again, then freeze up. I've done a few videos and have run into the same problem w/ all of them, any suggestions?

    2. Is there a way I can tweak the settings so that the video fits the 8800 media player screen.

    I'm an extreme beginner when it comes to this stuff, please be kind.

    Edit...OK I used the BlackBerry Video Encoder provided by baconismidog and wow!! That works freaking great, thank a lot, please disregard the above (was trying some of the previous methods in this thread).

    Edit again...OK one problem, videos are playing great w/ no bumps but the video shows as a small box in the midde of the media player, how do I adjust this? It seems that maybe this is not possible yet on the 8800?

    Re: The Original: Video encoding for the 8100

    i'm kinda new to all of this and have been trying to use the blackberry video converter but keep getting the message "Error : unable to execute the external program. The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process."

    I have closed all other applications on my computer and keep getting the same message. If anyone has any advice for me i would genuinely appreciate it. Thanks.

    When in doubt, restart the computer. Something has the video you want to use locked up (less likely - something has mencoder locked up). Either way, you can fix it by doing a restart. OR, you can look through the task manager for your media player application and if you see it kill it (mplayer.exe, wmplayer.exe, itunes.exe, etc.).

    If that doesn't help, pm me.

    Question Re: The Original: Video encoding for the 8100

    As a follow up on my previous post. Any advice on getting video to fit the media player screen fully on the 8800? I've played around with the settings but no luck to date. Again I'm an extreme newbie when it comes to encoding video so please bear with me. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    medium setting does not work? What version are you using (check the rocketship, I was being lazy and did not increment all the in program notes)

    MEdium should be 320x180 - that should fit the screen perfectly

    Yes. My program will not decrypt videos.

    ah, I just found I can do this with quicktime on mac. (sorry didn't read all the posts to see if anyone else commented about it.) If you have QT pro, just export to 3gp and use format = h.263, qcif 176x144, then on the audio tab select AAC... transfer them to the Pearl as is, you don't have to change the file extension.

    Under the video tab when I deselect maintain aspect ration and select Medium resolution (the only option available, I'm unable to select high or low) once I convert the file and trasfer it to my device via desktop manager the video plays and sounds great but shows as a small box in the middle of the media player screen. What am I doing wrong? I'm using version 1.13 by the way.

    Does that happen on all videos you try or only the one in question? What type of video is it? Could you run it throught g-spot for me (http://www.headbands.com/gspot/)? I have seen that happen once with a .dat file I made from a DVD.

    To answer your first question it has happened w/ a couple video's I've tried. They are both videos taken on my Sony DVD camera that I captured into my computer. I tried to run the video trough g-spot and I'm a little lost, can you offer a little more intruction? I'm a bit of a beginner. I have been able to get this video to play fine using the pearl screen size on medium or low resolution, it obviously doesn't fit the screen width wise but plays fine. If I encode it on high resolution using the pearl settings it get's choppy. Still having the same problem using the 8800 settings, video shows up as a small box in the middle of the screen (but plays smooth and sounds good).

    To use gspot: Install it. Just open the video from gspot (file/open). Email me a screenshot of the gspot program (click alt+print scrn and paste it into word or paint (if paint, save it as a jpg and email me that)).


    I have had a lot of trouble with movies made on personal video cameras. The canon powershot models are a bit of a mystery, the audio bitrate is very odd. I don't doubt that something similar is going on with Sony's formats.

    I started playing around with some video taken w/ the same camera to see if it was just the specific two video's I was encoding and it turns out it was. I just spliced some video together in Window's Movie Maker, used your program to encode it using the Medium setting under the 8800 screen size and it worked fine. Thanks for all the help, I'm going to your site as we speak to contribute a donation.

    Re: The Original: Video encoding for the 8100

    Question on DVD's. I was able to rip a DVD onto my pc's hard drive using DVD Shrink. At this point I noticed the DVD is split up into about 7 seperate files. Does anyone know how to combine these seperate files into one so I can watch the movie in succession? I am able to get each chapter onto my phone and it works fine, I just figured there has to be a better way.
