For those that watch video's on the TP2

What video converter for you using and what resolution are you using?

I have tried a few video's and it has a good picture but it is lagging. Maybe my video resolution is too high...used 640x320 and others similar to that.
Putting the video on a 8gb sd card. Tell me what your using.

Re: For those that watch video's on the TP2

I configure my own presets to use with WinFF. You may reuse it if you want to. Here's how:

1. Install WinFF (winff.org)

2. Type this into the Explorer address bar: %appdata%\WinFF
(This will let you go to the location where WinFF presets are saved.)

3. Open up "presets.xml" with a text editor.
Below are my presets for the TouchPro2. Paste them after the line <presets> in the xml:

Code:
  <XviDAVIFS>
    <label>XviD TouchPro2 4:3 600x450</label>
    <params>-f avi -r 23.976 -vcodec libxvid -vtag XVID -s 600x450 -aspect 4:3 -maxrate 780kb -b 700kb -qmin 5 -qmax 16 -bufsize 4096 -mbd 2 -bf 2 -flags +4mv -trellis -aic -cmp 2 -subcmp 2 -g 300 -acodec libmp3lame -ar 48000 -ab 112kb -ac 2</params>
    <extension>avi</extension>
    <category>AVI</category>
  </XviDAVIFS>
  <XviDAVIWS>
    <label>XviD TouchPro2 5:3 600x360</label>
    <params>-f avi -r 23.976 -vcodec libxvid -vtag XVID -s 600x360 -aspect 5:3 -maxrate 780k -b 700k -qmin 5 -qmax 16 -bufsize 4096 -mbd 2 -bf 2 -flags +4mv -trellis -aic -cmp 2 -subcmp 2 -g 300 -acodec libmp3lame -ar 48000 -ab 112k -ac 2</params>
    <extension>avi</extension>
    <category>AVI</category>
  </XviDAVIWS>
  <XviDAVIWS>
    <label>XviD TouchPro2 16:9 600x338</label>
    <params>-f avi -r 23.976 -vcodec libxvid -vtag XVID -s 600x338 -aspect 16:9 -maxrate 780k -b 700k -qmin 5 -qmax 16 -bufsize 4096 -mbd 2 -bf 2 -flags +4mv -trellis -aic -cmp 2 -subcmp 2 -g 300 -acodec libmp3lame -ar 48000 -ab 112k -ac 2</params>
    <extension>avi</extension>
    <category>AVI</category>
  </XviDAVIWS>
  <XviDAVIWSAna>
    <label>XviD TouchPro2 Anamorphic 600x256</label>
    <params>-f avi -r 23.976 -croptop 58 -cropbottom 62 -vcodec libxvid -vtag XVID -s 600x256 -aspect 2.35 -maxrate 780kb -b 700kb -qmin 5 -qmax 16 -bufsize 4096 -mbd 2 -bf 2 -flags +4mv -trellis -aic -cmp 2 -subcmp 2 -g 300 -acodec libmp3lame -ar 48000 -ab 112kb -ac 2</params>
    <extension>avi</extension>
    <category>AVI</category>
  </XviDAVIWSAna>
4. Save the modified "presets.xml", when you reopen WinFF you should see the new presets under the AVI category.

*You could also enable 2pass in WinFF for better quality, but longer conversion time.
*5:3 is TouchPro2 screen aspect ratio, so you won't get any black bars.

The link to download the program doesn't work. Do you have another source for it.

Re: For those that watch video's on the TP2

I used Format Factory, which I believe was recommened previously here or on SU. I only used it once for a movie but it was fairly easy to use, I don't remember what size I used, 480x?, sorry... bu there is no lag at all, it's also widescreen not fullscreen.

I just read on a thread that if you are using custom rom with Sense 2.1 or 2.5 that Sense causes video to lag. I use TCPMP to a video that is pretty smooth on my TP1 and my PC but lags on my TP2. I disabled Sense temporarily and seems to play better. So maybe it isn't your converter in particular unless you are still using stock rom.

Re: For those that watch video's on the TP2

If you just buy Coreplayer you don't need to convert and can play those xvid files you want. The only issue is if you're not using wm6.1 (i.e. 6.5 or newer) you have to turn off manila for the videos to play properly. Personally I'd rather do that than have to reconvert all my videos, I used to have to do that with the ipod touch, drove me crazy.

UPDATE: Someone created a script that closes manila and opens Coreplayer, and when you exit Coreplayer it reopens manila (http://forum.ppcgeeks.com/showpost.p...6&postcount=52). You just need mortscript installed for it to work. [You just have to remember to exit coreplayer from "menu > exit" and not the "x" for things to work properly. But IMO this is much more convenient than manually closing manila from settings or having to constantly convert files.]
