The newer Blackberry models all have media players installed on them out of the box. I recently started using a Blackberry Curve and wanted to transcode some of my podcast videos I download to watch on the bus.
ffmpegX handles this conversion well. You’ll need to use the following settings for the transcoded video to work on a Blackberry.
These are the important settings for the video to work.
- Video Codec: MPEG4 (MP4) (ffmpeg)
- Video Bitrate: 600–800 kbit/s (higher bitrates will lead to stuttering)
- Video Size: 320×240
- Autosize: 4:3
- Audio Codec: AAC (MOV/MP4/3GP)
- Audio bitrate: 96kbit/s
- Sampling: 44100Hz
To save everyone time, I saved these settings to a ffmpegX preset file.
