How to: Encode videos in mp4

13. April 2007 at 13:18

You would like to look a film on your N95 or on a other 3rd Edition device, but do not know how?
No problem, I tell you,how to encode the video in mp4.

Step 1:

First of all, you need SUPER © Simplified Universal Player Encoder & Renderer, which you can download here.

Step 2: Settings

  • 1. Select the output container
    select mp4
  • 2. Select the output video codec
    select H.264/AVC
  • 3. Select the output audio codec
    select AAC
  • 4. Set video parameters
    Video scale size: No change
    Frame/sec: 15 (or lower, exactly half of the original’s rate is best choice)
    Bitrate: 336 is safe, don’t go over 384
    Options: go to H.264 profile and choose Baseline & 1.2
  • 5. Set audio parameters
    The best option would be not to change anything, but SUPER doesn’t have the option to just pass through. Double-click on your original file, and check bit rate and sampling rate from ‘audio #0’ box. Or you can put my safe settings:
    Sampling freq: 44100
    Channels: 2
    Bitrate: 64

Then just drag-and-drop the original file to SUPER and click Encode now. If you are lucky it will process it for a while (actually a long while if it’s a movie etc.) and produce a new file for you to watch in your S60. If you got an ERROR, there was something in the original SUPER didn’t like. You might try again by changing Video scale size to 320×240, but then you might get a distorted result, if your file was in wide-screen format (height of picture is less than 240
