    Re: How to: Convert videos for your Blackberry Pearl, Curve, 8800 etc.

    I've been converting vdos to avi format so that I can see it on my pearl for weeks now.

    The code that I use is

    mencoder -vf scale=240:180 <input vdo location> -o <output vdo location> -of avi -ovc lavc -oac mp3lame -lavcopts vcodec=mpeg4:vbitrate=240 -lameopts br=64:vol=9

    I use this code to convert a DVD to a format that I can see on my pearl

    mencoder -vf scale=240:180 dvd://1 -dvd-device /mnt/cdrom/VIDEO_TS -slang en -o ~/chinese.avi -of avi -ovc lavc -oac mp3lame -lavcopts vcodec=mpeg4:vbitrate=240 -lameopts br=64:vol=9

    This assumes that the vdo is located on track 1 of the dvd (it is 95% of the time), and this also gets the captions... Yes I love captions so I just had to get it on my pearl. If you dont like captions remove the bit from the line that goes "-slang en" and then you'll get the picture only without the captions.

    A 4.5 GB full length dvd becomes about 300mb after conversion, in my experience. You mileage may vary.

    Oh. And you'll have to get the mencoder program off the net. Its free. Google is your friend.

    You need to get the mencoder program from the net and then open a command box AKA dos box... Start> Run, then type in Command.

    At the command prompt you have to type in the whole command... word for word or you could try at cut & paste... Then the program will take your input vdo and re encode it into a format that your BB can play.

    You need to be half a geek to do this... if you aren't then you are SOL. Sorry. I can only hold your hand so far... You'll just have to stick to getting your vdos preformatted from the net by some kind soul.

    For some reason it wouldnt transfer using the Roxio media manager after I converted it... How long is it taking everyone to transfer the actual completed video to their BB's? I have some older videos that I converted for my Pearl, and it took over 45 min to transfer Shrek to my Curve!

    I seem to be having problems downloading the Super C program. I went to the link from the fist page. I followed the prompts and clicked on the download here, and then went to a new page, but nohing else, no download. Am I missing something??

    This program has to be the best thing yet! I have tried several other programs out there and this was simple, clean and direct. No need to back door the programs so it plays.

    I work late nights and during my breaks there is nothing to do. I get tired of searching the web for news. Now I can watch movies while on break. I am soo excited! Starting of with Inspector Gadget (original cartoon) WAY better then no news at night.

    THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU
