    Lightbulb VIDEO on Android

    Thought i would pass on this info incase anyone was wondering.

    Ive been messing around to find the best formats for videos on the droid.
    I suggest using HANDBRAKE ( which can be found out on the web for free)
    IN HandBrake:
    FORMAT: M4V
    Picture & Setting:
    CROP: auto
    SIZE: 640x366 (for widescreen)
    VIDEO:
    Codec: H.264
    Framerate: same as source
    Audio:
    Source: Auto
    Codec: AAC
    MixDown: Stereo
    SampleRate: 48, or AUTO

    Add your Source Vid... then click on Browse for destination file...
    Here browse to your save folder, type the file name, and ensure it says save as MP4.

    Thats it... start encoding!

    Ive converted 5 videos from multiple formats with these settings and they playback perfectly on the Driod from the default GALLERY app.

    Note: If you try converting HiRes movies from MKV formats, you cannot use ones with DOLBY/ DTS audio, you will have to convert the audio to AAC first.
    (handbrake doesnt seem to want to convert these properly)

    Good info. I've been sitting here re-encoding videos with HB trying to figure out what parameters work best. I've found that the videos I had encoded for my iPhone played equally well on my Storm but not so much om my Droid. I've read on few Android forums that mp4 formatted movies seem to give other Android phones a tummy ache. Lol.

    Most likely its the actual codec used... with handbrake it seem by using h.264 with the M4V settings, but saving as MP4, works out great.
    Ive done a few videos from DVD quality that look F'n great... the HiRes ones look even BETTER !
