Official Video Conversion Thread

Thats right its official, this is meant as a generally tutorial and will be updated periodically. If you have and questions concerns comments problems anything please feel free to PM me, email me(nikolasmor@msn.com) or AIM me (greenlx93) This is the first version of the tutorial as I'm sure there will be some mistakes and some spelling errors LOL

How to make a video for use on the V710 Using Mpegable X4 Live

http://n3ldan.info/mpegable.exe


Upon opening Mpegable a Registration Screen will pop up. Just hit cancel

Now you will be presented with 4 boxes layered in the corners of the screen. In the bottom left corner is a box titled “Settings”. This is the box you will be working with.

First you will want to choose the file that you want to convert. This is done by clicking browse in the “input” section. Double click on the file you would like to convert.

Next you will want to know tell Mpegable where to save the file. I made a folder title V710 and save them there.

Ignore Step 3: Encoding Profile as we are going to create our own profile.

Next click the Image Preprocessing Tab. Check the second box(Cropping/Resizing) Then press setup. In the Absolute size section click the QCIF(176x144) circle. In the Resizing mode section Click Bicubic and check the High Quality Box. Hit OK

Next is the Video Preprocessing Tab. In the Target Framerate section click User Defined box and type 15

Next is the Interoperability Tab. Click the 3GPP Circle and hit ok on the pop-up Now change the Audio Codec to AAC

You do not need to use the Movie info Tab

Move along to the Audio Encoding Tab. Change the bitrate to 48kBit/s, Channel to Mono and the Sample Rate Conversion to 22050 Hz

Finally we are at the Video Encoding Tab. First change the Video Bitrate to 92kBit/s

Move back to the Basic I/O Tab and press the Red Circle to begin encoding.

Any questions comments or concerns can be sent nikolasmor@msn.com

Aslo if you would like me to convert a file for you just email it to me or if you have converted a video and are having problems simply let me know and I will do what I can

I also will take any requests...if you have the file or a link to it that would be great. If you don't then you will have to give me a few days but I will do what I can. greenlx93 is my AIM name nikolasmor@msn.com for email.

I can convert anything that you want to send to me...I can direct connect through AIM and accept any file size and get it hosted for you.

If you want to do full movies let me know, more than likely I have the DVD already and can do it. Any way to get a sticky on this?
 
No-one? cmon people you gotta have some feedback for me or something
 
WOW

I've been through 3programs already, but this one's the best. Oh, and i love the guide. Thanks again! :haveadrin

The problem with that is I don't want Jerry to have to register and login and everything to get them...X$ live is free forever as far as I know...I've had it for about 6 weeks

opps quoted the wrong person.....it was meant for justincase's link :eek:
 
Sorry I was replying to both of you...no problems...matrix is almost done
 
yeah, no java on the 710. That site is a basic locker for all motorola stuff. A great place to contribute and grab from as well.
 
??

do you know what program you use to convert a video from the trans flash card / phone to pc??? or is it the same program???
 
the file type of the video on the TF card will play with QuickTime on your PC.

Does that answer your question? :befuddled
 
Hmmmmmmmm...Yeah I don't know if I dont understand the question or the other way around. As stated Quick Time will play all videos from the phone and so so will mpegable player/ www.mpegable.com To get the videos on the PC simply insert the memory card into the reader and copy them onto your hard drive from the memory card
