    Unhappy best video resolutions for BB Torch 9800

    I seem to have a minor issue with videos that has been ripped from the original DVD source, and converted to their BlackBerry proper settings, in this case .MP4 format (1 passing)

    I have atached a screenshot of one of the DVD movies shows the detailed properties on the file, as you can see the resolutions here shows 320x176 @ 23 FFS, but yet the Torch has a screen resolution of 480x360, should I change that to achieve a better screen quality for optimum viewing?

    I also did a comparison between an Apple iPod Touch 32GB (4th GEN), resolution at 640x480 @ 30 frames .vs Torch9800, seems the iPod Touch shows a better overall video picture.
    Another interesting fact is when I uploaded a youtube video to my Torch, the video quality was superb, absolutely amazing (.MP4 format).

    Is it possible I picked the incorrect resolution for my Torch9800?

    I would be more than happy if members of can submit their experience or what program/setting is the best

    In addition, I really love watching videos off my Torch when I'm on public transportation, or ViaRail commuting with this phone is never boring.

    Thank you in advance

    Hey grimreaper,

    it really depends on what software you are using to convert your DVD's to mp4. There are many out there. The important thing to remember is the file format that the torch can play. I know that you had already mentioned that you are using .mp4 format, and that generally works pretty well. You may want to take a look at some of the other formats that the Torch support, and see if you have better luck with them. They are as follows:

    Audio

    AAC
    AMR
    FLAC
    MP3
    M4A
    OGG
    WMA
    WAV
    Video

    3GP
    AVI
    ASF
    MP4
    MOV
    WMV

    Here is configuration settings that I have heard work great:

    Output video format: mp4
    Output audio format: mp3
    Video:
    Video Size/resolution: 480×360
    Video Bitrate: 1200kbps
    Audio:
    Audio Bitrate: 64kbps

    Hope this helps.

    Thanx for the responses ice2921 and Joe
    I'll keep on testing with different formats as I'm familiar with the other formats I just like .MP4 and convert future titles to .AVI & .MOV next time.
    Thank you again

    Just an update to the members of BBOS, I've converted a few videos to .WMV and it's pretty good quality not bad
