Full widescreen video player for E90

Hi folks,

Just wondering, how do I convert a video to play in full widescreen on the internal screen of the e90? The link below shows MI3 playing in widescreen but I can't seem to encode my videos to play like this.

I've been using MediaCoder, which is free tool, and had very good results:
mediacoder.sourceforge.net

You can get a "preset" file that is optimised for the E90:
www_bitburners.com/Software/Download/Video_Codecs_and_Encoders/MediaCoder_preset_for_Nokia_E90/
Change the first underscore to a "." (dot)

(Sorry about the links, but the forum software won't let me post web addresses)

Although the output is great, I must say that the encoding is very slow.

I hope this helps.

MediaCoder is awesome!! I wish I should have found out about this before buying ImToo software. I could have simply donated what I paid for it to Mediacoder. Now I can play movies in FULL WIDESCREEN!!

Well got it working, took over 3 hours to convert a 30 minute episode of South Park, quality is very good though, but it doesn't half take it's time converting!!!

Well I have MediaCoder installed and working but I have to say that it is really CPU intensive. I have a 2.93 GIG Qual Core with 4 GIG of RAM and it has all 4 cores peged and my RAM at 50%! I'll report back here at to how long it takes. I have also used the Media Converter from Rock-Your-Mobile and while it doesn't give you the full screen as shown on the youtube video, it does a pretty good job and will convert an hout long TV program in about 30 minutes.

I'm now converting The Simpsons movie. 5 hours in and still more to go. This is getting silly for a 700MB file!!!

OK, Simpsons movie is done. 8 hours conversion time all in, crazy. However the finished product works great in the E90 screen. 700MB original file down to 480MB for the converted version, I'll need a 4GB SD card now!!!

divx player (0.89) plays my 700mb avi files fine with no transcoding necessary. Does drop the odd frame but very watchable!

True, but the finished article on the media coder once done is very nice and clear.
