    Which video conversion setting is wrong?

    I can hear but can't see my videos. I'm using Adobe. Here are my settings:

    Codec: Mainconcept h.264
    TV Standard: ntsc
    frame width: 720
    frame height: 480
    frame rate: 25 fps
    field order: lower
    pixel aspect ratio: widescreen 16:9
    profile: high
    bitrate encoding: constant bit rate 1 mbps

    Thougts?

    For 16:9, it should be 848x480, and the bitrate should be 1500kbps or less or the Droid probably won't be able to keep up and will drop frames or not play visuals at all. 1mbps is a crazy high rate for a 720x480 H.264 vid.

    I thought 1 mbps = 1000 kbps?

    Wow, you sir are correct...I'm not sure what I was thinking there. Try re-encoding it at 1mbps with an 848x480 size, see if that works.

    You might need to lower the res depending on what type of video it is...

    the codec is most likely your problem.

    Start with an iPod/iPhone profile, then change the settings.

    H264 is the correct video codec, however there are so many variations in its internal settings that affect playability on your device. The codec is the same as the one used in Bluray, HDDVD and iTunes purchased/rented movies, and even the same as the one used in Quicktime movie trailers, but due to the settings (level ID, Cabac, no Cabac etc) most of those still need to be converted to be able to play on your Droid.

    If you start with an iPod/iPhone compatible profile (or "Mobile", you have to look through the profiles that are offered in your Adobe install) and then change the settings it should work just fine.

    As mentioned, screensize can be 854x480 as a max, however some conversion tools only lock it to a factor of 16, which makes it 848x480
    Video quality 1500 Kbps as a max, audio AAC Stereo at 160Kbps

    If you can;t figure it out, maybe download a converted trailer from my thread here and load that in Adobe to see if you can copy the settings

    So why wouldn't an mp4 @ 720x480 play on his Droid? Shouldn't that play?
    BTW... what's better for the Droid... 25 fps or 29.97?

    As I mentioned in my post, not all H264 MP4 is the same.

    the rest of your settings are fine, no problems with that, but if your H264 settings are not set properly, the video would not show.

    the framerate should be the same as the source video in my opinion.
