Do you recommend unistalling the older version and then installing the new one?

Ok, I'm a self-described DUMMY when it comes to software stuff. (I work in HARDWARE R&D.) I just downloaded Bacon's converter (BBVC) and converted my first movie and dumped it on my Pearl in under 5min. This is the BEST and easiest to figure out program I've ever seen. Even a DUMMY, like me, can use it!

You get a donation from me!
Well done sir!
Well done!

(Payment from tekwerx account. What an AWESOME program!)

*Edit again* Thanks for the free movie download stuff too!

2. Super with recommeded AVI settings. Output file size: 19,787 kb. Quality score: 80%. Slightly less grainy than 3GP. Acceptable.

3. Mplayer encoder with Zro's recommended settings. Output file size: 22,880 kb. Quality score: 95%. Larger screen size. Only a bit more color depth would make this encoder perfect. Best in class.

In all 3 cases, sound and video were a perfect match.

Remember, these file sizes are for 10 minutes of a movie.

Doing the math... for storing more than one full-length movie on a 1GB card, assuming you want to leave space for plenty of songs, you'd need to decide whether to encode 2-3 excellent movies with MPlayer, or 3-4 acceptable movies with Super.

Storage v/s material quality... hmm...

Here's hoping they release the fix for the 2GB card soon!
you seem to know what you are talking about..

can you help me with one thing..

BMARQUE,
I answered you in the thread below. Please don't double post. And this one, too, is in the wrong thread.

Awesome! Very glad to hear that you like it. It is my first software project ever and the response has been great - a super motivator.

I have just released the 1.13 pre-release version (1.13.0.6). It includes the ability to set individual settings (directories, color, etc), support for the 8800, and a file transfer browser to make it very easy to put files on your Blackberry!

Thanks again,
B

*EDIT* Thank you very much for the donation!!!!

A BBF Member e-mailed me and asked why he could not convert his DVD files. He said the "IFO" files would not convert. Just as a side-note since this is not my massive "how to" video I am producing [should be a 1/2 hour show]:

"IFO" files are NOT what you convert, it's the "VOB" files. See pic. Versioned Object Base [VOB] files contain the actual video and audio. IFO [or Information] files simply contain chapter info, etc. That is why they are very small compared to the HUGE VOB files.

Also, keep in mind that if you are trying to convert your DVD movies into Pearl format you are going to need an unlock program such as AnyDVD [see other post where I link to it].

You do NOT need an unlock program if you are converting "home DVD recordings" made with your DVD recorder, such as TV programs.

You need the unlock program to get by your DVD movies protection, that is, the "lock" put on by the studio to prevent illegal copying. [Making a copy of legally owned DVD movies is NOT illegal, but I will spare explaining the law on that].

Side Note: Why are my VOB files in the below pic so small as compared to DVD movies, that are typically 1GB or larger? Simple, the DVD I pulled out of the DVD recorder and put into my PC's DVD drive had some five minute news clips I was recording off the TV news. In other words, they were not movie chapters.

Hi Baconismidog! Thanks so much for the link and converter. Perfect for a non-DOS person like me. YOU ARE AWESOME!!! I haven't tried converting anything yet, but I did download one of your samples. Perfect! Thanks!

Exclamation Help! Mencoder Questions

I got a pearl yesterday and i really want to find the power of video playing on my phone. So I used Mencoder to covert the movie, but it could not play. In the start it displayed with Loading and suddently showed with Error. I have tried many times even change the video bitrate to low.

REM WinMEnc encoding
mencoder.exe "E:\movie\Rocketman\rocketmana.rmvb" -srate 44100 -vf-add scale=240:135 -ofps 15 -oac mp3lame -lameopts cbr:br=32:mode=3 -ovc lavc -ffourcc DIVX -lavcopts vcodec=mpeg4:vbitrate=200 -o "\rocketmana.DivX.avi" 2> 2.txt

Is there any mistake in the process? Anyone could help me?

Thank you so much...

jjajj,
I moved your post to this thread. Have you read through this? I know it's long but it will help tremendously. I had to read the entire thread three times before I got it figured out.

Default Spanish?

Ok, the BB video creator is awesome but I have 1 question so far. All of the files that I converted from "The Ringer" work but 1 and I can't get it to not be in Spanish. The clip itself works before I use the video creator but after that its always in Spanish. Any ideas? Thanks guys.

Make sure you have version 1.13.0.7 (get it at my page if you don't already have it, I have not yet posted it to the file repositories)

Did you check English on the Language Tab?

If that doesn't work just click the available languages button and follow the instructions to determine what the name for the English track on your file is (assuming that it has one)

Default Audio not syncing

I have used KeepVid to grab some videos from YouTube, I have then used baconismidog's program to convert the FLV to an AVI for my Pearl.

But when I do, the audio gets "trimmed" at the beginning of the converting and the end result.... the audio is plays faster than the video.

Can anyone help? Do I need to do something in the "Advanced" tab of baconismidog's program?

.FLV files have a variable bitrate. As far as I know there is no way that mencoder can compensate for that. You might try one of the online converters to get the .flv into an .avi, then use the BBVC to convert that .avi into one you can play on your Blackberry.

Default Cropping Video?

Does anybody know if there is a way to crop a widescreen divx avi to make it the 4:3 aspect ratio needed for the pearl without stretching the video to that size?

Edit: I have found out that mencoder can crop. I am trying it right now with an office space movie. I'll let you know what I find out.

EDIT: It worked great. I included this in my command statement for mencoder:

-vf crop=560:576:80:0,dsize=4/3,scale=320:240

where crop=width : height : x : y (without the spaces)

x and y are for the area you want to crop. Default is centered.

I'm not too familiar with it. Maybe somebody that knows more can fine tune it for those of us who want to try this. I'll mess with it some more and let you know what I find. I'm suprised this hasn't come up yet.



***EDIT***

I think I have kinda figured it out. Instead of using the numbers above, look and see what the pixel ratio is for your video file. For instance my original avi file of Office Space is 704x384. I wanted to crop the sides off to make it a 4:3 ratio. So i tried to find what number would give it to me, 384 divided by 512 is 0.75 which is 4:3. So I used the following command leaving the x and y part of the crop command blank, which centered the cropping in the middle of the video. It works excellent. I love it. No more stretched image.

-vf crop=512:384,dsize=4/3,scale=320:240

So now I just go in and change the numbers for the crop to adjust for different dimension sizes of different avi files. My complete statement in my batch file is as follows:

C:\Progra~1\MPlayer\Mplayer\mplayer\mencoder.exe -vf crop=512:384,dsize=4/3,scale=320:240 %1 -o "C:\bb\%~n1.avi" -of avi -ofps 24 -ovc lavc -oac lavc -lavcopts vcodec=mpeg4:vbitrate=320:acodec=mp3:abitrate=64

maybe its already been asked or mentioned somewhere but.....

is there anyway to rotate the view of the video? i go through tons of paper work on the job and am able to prop the pearl on its side. it would be easier for me to watch videos like this instead of trying to stand it up against something

if not, then its gravy

BaconIsMyDog, Do you think maybe cropping of the video could be worked into a future version of the Blackberry Video Converter? That would be badass.
