I was wondering if anyone else is playing around with putting video on the Q?

I have encountered choppy playback of mp4 videos...

I haven't received my minisd card yet so the clips were running off the internal memory. My gut tells me this wouldn't be the issue, but I'm open to suggestions...

The tcpmp player seems to be better at running things on the Q....

My minisd should arrive tomorrow, and then I plan to put something on it and attempt to play..

any tips/comments/suggestions would be appreciated...

Thx!!

I have a bunch of video I specifically encoded to work on mobile devices, and it works wonderfully on the Q. I use TCPMP, the most recent beta version. What you need to remember is video encoded for a PC is going to have a higher bitrate and resolution than the Q can handle. Normal sized PC videos will have to be reencoded to work on mobile devices.

Thanks for the reply...

I have noticed that TCPMP does run the video much better...

How do you encode your videos? Do you find one encoding works better than another? (i.e. mp4 vs Xvid vs WMV)? Are you encoding to smaller screen-size than 320x240? Are you just using a specific "tool" to encode...

Any info would be appreciated as I would really like to be able to watch videos on the thing like the Video Ipod...The Q just would provide the best of *all* worlds....

Thanks again!

There are lots of good tools to encode. TCPMP has some guides on PocketDivxEncoder on their website. I prefer encoding to avi. They seem to yield the best quality file for the size.

Sure I know how to encode to tons of formats, I was just wondering what settings you were using which yielded such good results, since my initial encounters have been a bit choppy. I guess a guide as to how to encode for the MotoQ and get the best playback performance is needed ;-)

Maybe this is an issue of the file being on the device as opposed to on the memory card. Hopefully my card will arrive today and I can test this theory....

I don't mind which format I encode in as long as it will play smoothly and ideally fill the screen...

Thanks again...

If you do not want to go to all the trouble of encoding all your media yourself. you can download and intstall orb www.orb.com orb then stream your content to you in the correct bit rate and speed

I have been useing for a week now and it looks great on The Q

Anyone know if you are able to view a video in full 320 x 240, or are we limited
to the 2/3 screen size of wmp?

Thanks

That's one of the many reasons I've recommend TCPMP multiple times. It's fullscreen goes fullscreen.
