Re: Watching movies on Storm

Hi Warren,

 

I have a full movie on my 9500 and it appears to work ok?

 

I used Vasa Video Converter to convert the movie from an AVI.

This also reduced the size by a large amount.

 

Hope this helps....

Warren as long as I use Media Manager to move the files over all my movies have worked fine so far. Whether I convert a avi over to mp4 file or move the avi right over they play great. But just dropping them in from windows explorer they don't play at all.....so just use Media Manager and it should go well. Alos any convertion proggie I've used to convert to a mp4 has server me well also. Hope this helps

Re: Watching movies on Storm

I recently used DVDFab Platinum to rip 300 for my 9530.  And, contrary to a previous post, I was able to use Windows Explorer to drag and drop the movie onto the device's memory card, and it played just fine.  I created a "videos" folder under the root of the device's memory card and then copied the MP4 file into it.  It's playing great!

 

What I found worked for me when converting the movie:

1. 1248kbps bitrate

2. 64khz audio

3. 25fps

4. Make sure to set it to the resolution of your device.  You'll notice widescreen doesn't quite convert to 480x360, but you can get it close enough.  It will still play well.

 

Hope this helps a bit.  Smiley Happy

Re: Watching movies on Storm

Hello.  Is there a recommended website for downloading movies?  Or, are the solutions provided for downloading a DVD from a PC to the Storm?  Can an iTunes movie be downloaded and converted to the Storm?

Re: Watching movies on Storm

I have been able to use the Media Manager to move movies to my Storm and they work great.  I tried to move a movie from iTunes and it did not work.  Not sure how to do that.

Re: Watching movies on Storm

Although I started this post weeks ago, it was solved the next day (or same day).  Look for my thread 'I just watched 'The Godfather' on my Storm'.

Here is a post I created a couple days ago. My Storm plays movies beautifully.. I have played MP4 and AVI formats on my Storm.
