About playing video

I don't know what conversion format to video is converted to. Also, there's a feature in the Settings menu called Format, and I was wondering what change that would make to the player. As far as the files I convert, they are .wmv & .mpeg which are supported by the player.

    Hi,
    I tried dragging and dropping a video file in the Video folder, but it didn't appear in the player. I don't know if the problem is that I'm using video files that I recorded on my pc (which are in .wmv & .mpeg formats), rather than just files taken from dvds. In either case, the file is supposed to go to the Video selection in the player, and not Photo one.

    The player comes with a cd for installing the Best Buy Digital Music manager and the Sansa Media Converter. As far as the files on my computer, the Hidden or Read Only boxes are unchecked in the Properties menu, so I don't know why these files won't convert to the player. I've tried converting some dvds with the Sansa Media Converter, but when I try to add the media, I get an error message that says "The file " " cannot be imported. Make sure that it is a valid file type and its contents have not been corrupted." I don't understand what the problem is, how will I be able to convert video files if there will always be an error?

    If you use the FORMAT command, it will basically dump all the contents and put the HD back to where it began. NOT a good thing to do. Try converting the dvd's to the format, and placing them on your hard drive of the computer and then drag and drop them to the Videos folder on the mp player. Let me know if that works. Thanks//D

Did your player come with a software disk to control conversion and movement for files? There is a good chance the files you are trying to view are protected, thus it won't show. Right click on the files you are moving and check the properties and make sure they are not protected. If there are check in the boxes for hidden or read only REMOVE THEM, also if a statement shows them BLOCKED, click to REMOVER THE BLOCK. I believe the files you are using in WMV format are protected thus the reason you can't transfer them. Please try this and see if that works.

How to employ optimal settings when converting videos to play on Motorola Droid


It's hard not to like Moto's new robot. The Droid is a top pick among Verizon's smart phones. It's well made and the huge display makes you feel like you've got a mini computer. Android could use some help in the friendly multimedia department with desktop media syncing and more supported video playback formats, but with a little effort the Droid is a very good music player and portable video player. To play videos on Droid, you need to convert them to MPEG4 or H.264 format first. Here I would share with you a good way that ends up with optimal video conversion for your Droid. Please find a step-by-step tutorial below.

Step 1. Run Video Converter and import source video files.
Pavtube Video Converter is recommended as a best tool to help you complete the conversion. You may download and install Pavtube Video Converter and try it out. Launch the app and here pops up an intuitive interface. Click "Add" to load recorded TV shows, or you could just drag the files in. The converter en-decodes versatile videos such as SD videos, AVCHD videos, flash videos, QuickTime files, and most container formats.

Step 2. Set output format and A/V settings to fit for Droid.
Specify location for generated files in "Output" box and click on "Format" bar and follow Common Video->H.264 Video (*.mp4). Here comes to specific settings for Moto Droid. Click on "Settings" button and you’ll find the settings panel pops up as below:

Optimal Video and audio settings:
Video codec: H.264 MP4
Size (resolution): 848*480pix
Bit rate: 2500kbps
Frame rate: 24fps
Audio codec: AAC
Sample rate: 48khz
Bit rate: 64kbps/ 96kbps/ 128kbps
Channels: Stereo

The native resolution of the Droid screen is not 848×480 so it will get you a video to display at full screen. Using these settings could give you a file that plays great on Droid. If you prefer a smaller file size, just set the video bit rate down to 1500kbps and it will still looks fine on screen. Dolby 5.1 Pro Logic sound is available too.

Step 3. Convert videos to play on Driod
Now click "Convert" button and wait. The ViewLog will present you all the info such as conversion progress, conversion state, elapsed andestimated conversion time, and generated and estimated conversion filesize. You may check "Shut down computer after conversion" and leave it be. After conversion you could sync the MP4 files to memory card and play them freely on Motorola Droid.
