Web Link Smartmovie correct settings?

Hi guys!

It's been few weeks since smartmovie has been released and i'm already wondering which are best settings to play smoothly in landscape mode clips!


I tried a lot of options (both for audio and video,reducing frame-rate,resolutions and depht), trying playing clips on siemens sx1 and nokia 6600.

I was not able to obtain a perfect smoothly playback but i noticed that encoding clips with 64kbs video and 8000hz 16kbs audio with a framerate around 15 fps is near my intention.


Is there anyone who was able to do this?
Any suggestions?


Thx in advance!

You can also try higher bitrate for audio and video,arround 80-96 kbs and its still fine.

I'm a little dissapointed in SmartMovie because it can't play high fps videos(24fps) smoothly like Mobiclip does.

Cool

Thank you!


I try it immediately even if i think 164k video is too high because of my 128 mmc!

.3gp movies played with phillips 3gp player and encoded with PV Author look the business, and uses industry standard 3gp files so it's easier if you want to share them..

Just my 2cents..

El Barto,just change the Video bitrate settings.Video->Compression->Configure->

willbrady,3gp is the industry standard for now.Mobiclip or more likely,regular divx can change that.There is another divx/xvid player in development,might even be freeware,should be released pretty soon.

BTW:The 3GP player is not standalone product and doesn't work on camera-less devices like the N-Gage.I'm not interested in sharing anything,i just posted these settings because i find them best suitable for my viewing pleasure.

El Barto,the settings i posted are fine for 29-30 fps movies so when the decimate frames by 2 options is used they are converted to 15 fps but if your source movies is a 24-25 fps movies the results are 12 fps movies which IMO is not acceptable.To correct this you can use the Video->Frame Rate->Converto to fps and insert 15.

Processing settings attached.

Cool

I've already tried doing this,as i have all pal clips,but i obtained an a/v desynced file.

I also noticed a better smooth playback using smartvideo converter 2.0 and built-in xvid encoder instead that used by windows and virtual dub.

Thx again!

There is a Audio Preroll Time setting in the 2.0 player.It can do a good job in fixing audio desync.

It probably has but since the N-Gage and the 6600 have similar ammount of RAM available it won't make any difference.

Similar ammount of RAM ???
I don't think so ...
check this comparison : (look at the "Free RAM" of both devices)
