Hi all -
I'm trying to define exactly what video formats the Bold requires - not just codecs as this information is everywhere, and too generalizing to boot.
As an example almost every time I've tried to transcode typical downloadable Xvid/Divx/etc videos from the internet, I get either a green screen and audio, or black screen and audio. Yet yesterday I was able to transcode directly from my Quantum of Solace DVD into an h264 MP4 that plays back flawlessly on my 9000 using the DVD ripping program's iPhone encoding profile. When I try converting a desktop video with the same settings, I get blackscreen..
I've tried every format I can think of.. different containers, resolutions, codecs, bitrates.. it seems to be entirely the luck of the draw whether a file works or not. Is there some obscure command-line switch function that PCs perform flawlessly and causes handhelds and media players to puke, like QPel quantizing?
