anyone know of a good video converter for the DROID that is on mac?
handbreak is what i use on my mac, havent used it yet for the droid, will do tonight
Can u tell me all the settings I will need to fit the droids amazing screen and how to do it.... thanks
I used the iphone setting, I think I did the video bit rate at 1500kps, no other changes, ripped an episode of 24 and sent it to somebody with a Droid, they said it looked amazing.
Can't wait to get mine
I'm on a Windows platform, but that won't make any difference for your Handbrake settings of course. I've done quite a bit of experimenting (and with several other applications as well), and here's what I've found to work great (with no syncing problems whatsoever and excellent/smooth video quality:
Handbrake settings for Motorola Droid:
Size: Anamorphic: None, Width/Height: 854 x 480
Video Codec: MPEG-4 (FFmpeg), Framerate (FPS): 24
Quality: Average Bitrate (kbps): 768
Everything set to default. I should note that these settings work best for 16:9 wide screen movies, and as far as bitrate is concerned, 768 works beautifully when viewed on the Droid. I have found this setting to provide a great balance between video quality (excellent) with no syncing issues and file size.
I just wish Handbrake had video effects for adjusting saturation, hue, brightness and contrast.
Hope this helps.
By the way, the 854 x 480 forces the default player on the Droid to play the video in full screen.
i am using Handbrake but i don't have the option to go past 720 either way, any idea what i may be doing wrong? i have tried multiple options with no luck. i get the movies to convert but they don't play full screen
You have to set the Anamorphic to None.
