I'm been playing around with video encoding for playback and have crashed the BOLD several times just by playing back video. It plays for about 300ms then freezes....
I tried 1600Kbps and 1200Kbps all Constant bit rate at 30fps and crashed the phone. This was a shock, as I would expect the player to complain, drop frames, or exit (am I missing something??????????????). I encoded 1000Kbps with 1200Kbps max, VBR and this seems to work.
SINCE the ERROR handeling is sub-standard, I would like to know exactly what the encode/decode parameters are....

I am experiencing the same problem.
Could it be the fps? If I have the Media Manager convert my videos they work fine, and it is using 23.97 fps.
I am creating my videos from Adobe Premiere Elements, and I would like to do all the conversion in using this software program and not the Media Manager (too buggy).

I DID IT! After much trial and error, I have *finally* figured out the right Adobe Premiere Elements 7 “share” settings to export videos on my AT&T BlackBerry Bold (build version v126.96.36.199). There are many setting values that simply will not work. Here’s what Premiere Elements users need to do:
From the Share menu, choose Mobile Phone
Choose one of the H.263 options (I believe H.263 is the MPEG4 codec. I could not get the H.264 codec to work no matter what I tried).
Use the following values (you may have to fiddle with the sequence to get these entered correctly)
TV Standard: NTSC
Frame size: 480 by 320
Frame Rate: 24 frames per second (Anything more than that causes the BB to lock up when the video is played)
Field Order: Non (Progressive)
Pixel Aspect Ratio: Square Pixels
Profile: Advanced Simple
Level: Level 4
Bitrate encoding: VBR, 1 Pass
Target Bitrate: 1,000 kbps
Maximum Bitrate: 1,310 kbps
Audio Format: AAC
Audio Codec: AAC
Output Channels: Stereo
Frequency: 48 khz
Audio Quality: High
Bitrate: 128 kbps
Multiplexing: 3GPP (MPEG4 worked, but the videos would start in the middle each time you played them)
BlackBerry has a support document called KB05482 which I found helpful. It shows the media types supported on BlackBerries.
I’d appreciate any feedback from anyone who gives this a try.
