Video Conversion for the Samsung Galaxy Note

Default Video Conversion Settings
I’m using DVDvideosoft Free Studio to convert Dvrms and M2ts files to mp4 for the note.

Please advise if these are the best settings.

H.264
1280X800 res
30fps
bitrate 2.5mbps
audio AAC 48000 Hz 192 kbps

There isn’t much information on specifications of videos that are accepted in this phone. Though your settings seem fairly high quality for a such a small screen, they seem to be within the limits. One question though, why 1280 x 800 instead of the usual 1280 x 720?

The screen spec is 800, wanted to match it. Would 720 be better?

It will probably scale up to the screen size. But I’m just guessing here, as I don’t have experience encoding for you phone.

Experiment a bit, and see what works.

I’ve never heard of the program you are using. Most people are using Handbrake for this sort of conversion.

I’d use the resolution of the input file and see if the phone can upscale it.

Yes the phone can upscale it, but for 1080i and 1080p the res needs to be changed anyway. Isn’t it better to match the phone’s native res? (5.4" Superamoled 1280X800)

If your source is 1080 that’s usually 1920X1080. The equivalent 1280 size is 1280X720 so if you do go for 800 you’ll have slightly taller, skinnier people and probably a longer encoding time, as the vid will have to be stretched instead of merely resized. Why not take a clip and try both?

Or just send me your Galaxy Note, and you won’t have to worry about this issue… :slight_smile:
