recomended encoding for HD video
« on: September 30, 2013, 08:40:22 AM »

my stations are frequently locking up. Windows, Andorid, etc. Its a mess. Its always stopping on video. Is there a recommendation for the video encoding to get these working reliably.

Please convert your videos to FLV or MP4 using: http://www.freemake.com/free_video_converter/
be sure to use H.264 as the encoder and you should be trouble free!

I did exactly what you said, and encoded a video to 720p \ MP4 \ H.264 using that tool. Your android player (model 200 I think) ran for a day and a half and locked up.

Try lowering your data rate.  I use no more than 3000kbs with excellent results.

I ran it under 3000, like 2800 I think.

Then it sounds like the cpu on your player cannot handle all of the information.  Try reducing the size of your video by reducing the dimensions but maintaining the aspect ratio.  Rather than 1280x720, try 975x524 and set the video to fill the zone.  See if that works.

Free Video Encoder is for windows. For those of us that run Mac, can you post specific optimal settings for Adobe Media Encoder?

I use a Mac, and to encode my videos for signage I use a free program called Handbrake.

Handbreak is good, but if you are using Adobe Media Encoder, I have posted the settings somewhere on here and will have to find the post.

I also use handbrake, but it does not convert to flash. I would like that option.
