N95 vs. PDA – What’s the better videoplayer?

6. July 2007 at 18:02

Memorycards becoming bigger and encoding videos becoming easily, so a lot people watch movies on their PDA and smartphones. I wanted to check what device is the better videoplayer. N95 or a PDA.

The PDA has a big 3.5” QVGA display and the N95 has ”only” a 2.6” QVGA screen. The display of the N95 shows 16.7 million colors whereby the PDA has only 65K. I converted both videos with SUPER converter (here the settings for Nseries).

Here the video on

How you can see is the visual quality of the N95 better than the quality of the PDA. The colors are for it debt. The N95 has 16.7 million colors and the PDA only 65K.
Winner: N95

The quality of the video on the PDA is not so good as on the N95 however the screen of the PDA is a lot bigger and it`s a pleasure to watch movies on the large screen. You see more details and other thinks.
Winner: PDA

What uses the best videoplayer if you can’t enjoy the audio of the movie? Therefore it’s important that theses devices give you the opportunity to plug in headphones. The N95 and near every PDA have a 3.5mm jack where you can plug in every headphone. A other function of the N95`s 3.5mm jack is the TV-out function. You can connect the N95 to the TV and playback the movie on it.
Winner: N95

Both devices are good videoplayer. You don’t need any extra player because the integrated player is very good. If you only want watch movies on the way you should take the PDA. However, if you have the possibility to plug in the N95 in a Tv you should choose the N95.

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
