I saw it advertised on this site. Anyone try it is it any good?
I really recommend downloading Handbrake for converting to Droid format. I tested many different converters and all had at least a partial issue with out of sync after you fast forward or reverse your movie. The only one that has never done that, was one recommend in another forum....Handbrake. It is not as pretty, but it is free and does an exceptional job for Droid conversions. It may have other issues, as all of them do, but for pure Droid conversion it cannot be beat IMHO.
In case you try it out...here are the settings I use and everyone is amazed at the quality on even the most action packed movies.
HandBrake setup (Ipod Legacy to start)
Picture settings tab
- Width/Height left blank in both fields
- Anamorphic - None
- Crop -Automatic
- H.264 (x264)
- Framerate - Same as source
- Avg bitrate - 1000
- AAC - Stereo - 48 - 160
I also recommend a purchase of the Act 1 video player from the market. Just a great player...
Thanks for the info. I use handbrake for my iPhone. I can't wait to order my Droid next week so I'm glad you posted the specs to convert it.
THANKS for the awesome info! Much appreciated!!
I use ZC Video Converter.
It converts fast and works great. No lag in the videos and the audio/video are synced perfectly.
I own AVS video converter. I couldn't get it to produce a good conversion for the droid. I use Handbrake for converting movies to droid along with DVd 43.
I use handbrake too. It works great. I set my height to 480. All other settings the same as mjs31.
The only thing I have a problem with are Geekbrief podcasts. They convert fine, but will not play on my phone. No idea why. All other podcasts I've converted from HD to small ones, DVDs all work. I get no errors from handbrake or any other converters. They just won't play.
I have attempted the settings you guys list for Handbrake but I get some sort of error about the query parser? Cant find any way around it, anyone have any ideas?
AVS is the worst "demo" suite ever
AVS Media demo versions of software for file-format conversion insert an voice-over advertisement into converted audio files unless you pay their exorbitant registrations fee.
If this site had any integrity at all they would refuse AVS's ads.
There are a few choices out there. If you don't want to pay for software, get shareware.

It's the same an image app inserting a watermark or any demo with any sort of limitation/restriction. Either pay up for find another free solution that suits your needs. This has nothing to do with AVS or DroidForums.net's integrity. :icon_rolleyes:
I bought the whole package of AVS software about a year ago. I dont have any issues with their software, I use it to convert my Sony HDcam .mkv files . I bought the unlimited lic for 49.99 I think. Ive used it to convert xvid etc to work on Droid.
