Media Studio For Nokia

Hya Guys i have just come accross Media Studio for Nokia it is an excellent piece of software it converts allmost all kinds of media files to play on a wide range of nokia phones it even lets you choose how big you want the file by selecting fit to 128mb,256mb,512mb,1gb so on 1 gb you can have 4 files of 256mb great quality too seems like a winner!

just thought i should share!

Regards

Nope. Sorry, none of those recommendations works. I have a 16:9 DVD. I've tried 320x240/4:3, and 480x272/16:9 and both screw up the aspect ratio. 320x240/16:9 generates an error if DirectShow is enabled, and I get the wrong aspect ratio if DirectShow is disabled.

How do I convert a 16:9 file to something that gives me the right aspect ratio with black bars at the top and bottom?

Thanks. That does the aspect ratio right but the soundtrack's out of sync. Blimey, this shouldn't be this difficult, it's a fairly obvious thing to want to do.

BTW, Nokia Video Manager doesn't even start to try to work.

Is there a setting that works on Super thats bigger than x240 that the N95-1 will handle. id like to make more use of the screen as x240 looks just too thin from DVD.
Id like to stretch the video from top to bottom just a little bit

Well, yes. I've found that just about all the settings offered above stretch the image to some degree. I think it must just be me: I can't bear to see images at the wrong aspect ratio. I'm the guy that fiddles with your widescreen TV settings because they're driving me nuts.

I think that the "stretch it" check box is actually counter-intuitive. That is, if you want to preserve the aspect ratio, you have it checked, but if you want it all stretched to fill the screen you have it unchecked. I could be wrong.

I've actually given up for now with Super. I wasted about three days trying to get the right settings and failed. I either get the picture all distorted, or a file size that's bigger than the original avi from the DVD. I can't afford to waste any more time on it, especially when it takes around half an hour on full resources to try a single conversion.

I just want a way of de-res-ing DVD video to a reasonable file size to view on the N95 at the correct aspect ratio with the sound in sync. Shouldn't be too hard, but seems to be impossible.

Hey all, thanks for sharing these settings, they work great on my N95.

However, I am still looking for the settings that allow the video to play in fullscreen via TV-out.

The 'nokia nseries experience' video that came with my original plum N95 played in fullscreen on my TV and was very decent quality. Anyone know what settings to use?

Thanks in advance

Andy

so the best depends on if you want the best for phone or of you want to watch them on tv too?


I take it the N95 doesnt play wmv files ?

It results in bigger files sizes and plays well on the TV, but generally I keep them 320:240 and just watch them on the phone.
320x240 still has a slight border on the n95 8gb screen....

I've just played a one the of the videos I converted and there seems to be a slightly larger border on the right hand side only, just a couple of pixels. I have the N95-1

I'm the same, I hate squashed, stretched and croped images, give me the black bars anyday.

It's strange it stretches it for you and not for me. The 320x240 setting above worked perfectly by only choosing those options and nothing else, no matter what the aspect of the original. Do you have the latest Super - the version from 4th July 2007?

I used Virtual dub to cut out just a minute of movie and used that to test the conversion settings, much less time consuming.

I'm having a play around with Super and wanted to see what was special about it so I'm trying to encode a video with it. I've chosen SpiderMan 3 but it seems to throw up an error when I try to encode the VOB file for the movie.

I ripped the film from the DVD using DVDShrink and AnyDVD and saved it on my HDD as a 5.23Gb VOB file, and don't worry... I own the original. It's sat right next to me

Anyway, can't Super convert from VOB to MP4?

SUPER isnt the best converter in my opinion.
Try Xilisofts DVD Ripper Platinum, it handles almost any file you throw at it
I have used it to convert TV series to mp4 for my N95 8GB and it works as a sharm and is REALY fast 2.
