mp4 and FLV freezing on Android device
« on: January 18, 2015, 10:08:11 AM »
Hello

I am using an Android 4.4.2 device with ARM Cortex-A9 Quad Core CPU + Mali-450 Octo-Core GPU

I tried a Timeline with a few MP4 H264 videos (1280 x 720 / 3283 Kbps / 30fps) ==> some of the videos (most of them) resulted in a black screen

So I modified encoding parameters of the videos ==> 1280 x 720 / 3283 Kbps / 25 fps
Everything became fine.

Is there some documentation about encoding best practices for Windows and Android Players ?

Thanks
Eric

Try to encode videos in FLV freemake video converter FLV codec 30 frames
With this configuration you sure works great

Thanks !

Yes, I am using Minix H8 : I'll try your suggestions.

What do you think about these devices ? Do you use them too ?
