DVD to Mobile Profiles

#1

I requested that support for “Creative Labs Zen Vision:M” player be added to Platinum’s defaults because I plan on buying one very soon. But after reading some here I see that there are Profiles that can be setup. So I created one that drops down under Generic. I named the file “generic.avi.xvid.mp3.dvdfab.zenvisionm.xml” and now have settings the way I want them by just selecting the title I created from the dropdown. :clap: Also editing existing profiles is good for those that just want to change the default settings (like volume level) for the Profiles that come pre-setup with Platinum. Very nice Fengtao :bow:

And a big hand to you GR, for posting this :clap: I’m sure it will be useful for others who need to customize for a particular application. Good work! :slight_smile:

I have a Cingular Cell Phone LG CU500 that plays movie clips. Although DVDFab does not support 3GP format that I can see this phone will play MP4 also. So I created a profile now for my LG CU500 phone. I made a full lenght movie into a 200mb MP4 file using DVDFab Mobile and it looks and plays great. :clap: And with the profile it’s a snap to setup to create the movie.

That’s amazing, GR! Now it’s possible to watch films on my mobile, instead of just playing mind-numbing, bum-numbing games.
Thanks very much. Jim :slight_smile:


#5

But be carefull for the charges by phone company and don’t let their bill surprised you.


#6

There is no charge to load a movie, made with DVDFab Mobile, onto the phone using the USB cable. And no charge to watch. Has nothing to do with the phone company. :slight_smile:

Guess since DVDFab versions 3.0.6.0 - 3.0.6.6 are Beta versoin things are bound to change some. My LG500 and ZenVison:M profiles don’t work in 3.0.6.6 so I had to modify them to work in version 3.0.6.6. Probably have to modify them again when the official release comes out. Anyway don’t know if anyone cares or not but here they are. Oh and this thread has nothing to do with Saw 3 LOL :clap:

Now if only the following two things were in place I would be extatic:

  1. one of the arguements for the video was NONE (i.e. audio rip only), and
  2. there was no sync problem for DTS.

Hi Greg: Thanks for posting this. I have a Zen Vision:M as well. Converting to a proper format for ZVM has been a pain. I’ve tried other ZVM-specific converters (M2convert) with limited success. I want to implement your above ZVM solution. What do I do with the XML code? Would I copy and paste to Notepad, then change the file extension? And if yes, then what would I do with that file? Thanks in advance.

Rename the attached text file to this post from generic.avi.xvid.mp3.zenvisionm.xml.txt to generic.avi.xvid.mp3.zenvisionm.xml (had to add .txt to upload to this post)

Save the renamed file to where you installed DVDFab in the Profiles directory. Usually C:\Program Files\DVDFab Platinum 3\Profiles\

Now open DVDFab and test it. Let me know if it works for you.

generic.avi.xvid.mp3.zenvisionm.xml.txt (1.02 KB)

I followed your instructions and it works SPLENDIDLY!

I originally looked for a drop down under the Generic icon when you first launch DVDFab (for some reason, I thought that I saw a screen shot with the Zen config as a sub-selection to GENERIC.) I found the Zen option after clicking NEXT and then the CONFIGURE button. For other noobs out there, you can find the ZVM option when you search the pull down menu for DEVICE. Select that, and apply. (I am using version 3.0.7.2)

Thanks for creating and posting this solution. Its been driving me insane since I got my ZVM only a few days ago. I was ready to return the unit if I could not get the video to work, but now I can enjoy FAMILY GUY and more when I travel!


#12

How does one go about figuring out what “profile” is correct? I have a Treo 700w with Media Player 10 as the playing software. It recognizes WMV as the file type to play. Does anyone know if there are other file types recognized and what I need to do using DVDFab Platinum to rip my DVD so I can watch it on my Treo?

Thanks,
Don


#13

I found that the generic.avi.xvid.mp3.xml worked just fine for my Treo and I also found the freeware TCPMP 0.72RC1 to be my player of choice


#14

Thanks for posting back with the positive results. It will help another user with the same issue at some point.:clap: Glad it worked out.


#15

Does this profile work with 3.0.8.0?


#16

Off topic but of interest to MP3 users. Microsoft lost a 1.5 Billion law suite for infringing copy right laws on MP3 technology story on ZD Net.

#17

Old topic but helpful

Op,

Just got it to work, Had trouble @ first probably because I am running Xp via Parallels. Now just gotta wait 2.5 hrs, do I still have to convert when uploading to the zen?


#18

Tried that profile with version 5, works great. Thanks.
