Is there a video converter app for Android that can convert videos to a audio and video format fully supported by Chromecast? I have found an app that covers to the right video container, but wrong codecs, and right audio container and codecs. It's called "Video Converter"
I am switching from iPhone to Motorola Droid and having issues with converting videos. Can someone tell me what are the most optimal settings for converting videos for playback and a good converter that converts videos in bulk not one at a time?
I am looking for a video converter for some avi movies I have on my comp. I use videora now but it doesn't have a hero setting and videos are too large for the hero screen and the sound lags. Does anyone know of a better converter or have all of the video specs so I can input them manually (i tried but it went over my head).
What is a good free lock screen replacement? I tried lockbot, but it changes style on every lock, and it has some weird bug where if I use the button to lock it, it goes black, then the unlock screen appears (screen doesn't turn off). I do not care much about theming it myself as long as it has a halfway decent theme to begin with, but I do not want to pay for it (yes, I am cheap :P ) and want to get rid of the lag associated with the default lock screen.
After publishing a free app to Android Market I have received numerous solicitations from 3rd party app stores to publish my app such as handster.com and mobango.com. To date, I have not pursued that and my app is only available on Android Market.
I would love to hear some developer opinions about this: Is it better to stick to Android Market only, or does it make sense to publish your free apps in as many stores as you can? What do you think are the pros and cons to each approach?
I'm going on a trip soon and wanted to put some movies on my phone. I found some DVD ripping software, ripped The Dark Knight as MPEG4, and was thrilled when I saw the picture- it looked fantastic. Then I put my headphones in. Where's my sound?
Before this, I had the movie The Book of Eli on my computer, MPEG4. I put that on my phone- sound, but not video. Converted to H.263, got both, but video was terrible quality. Near unwatchable. Should I try converting to a different format? I mean, there has to be some way to get good quality video.
So my friend just broke my Droid Eris last night and now I'm getting the Droid! But i want to be fully prepared to root it as soon as I get it! Does anyone know of an up-to-date video of root? or something similar? Yes im a total noob, so simple is better.
Specifically some that may cater to an experienced developer (C#) but not necessarily familiar with Java/Eclipse?I have seen a couple vids on YouTube but they are either short (not much you can learn in 3mins or patronizing)
Pre-Froyo streaming video used to be pretty good on Incredible. My work often involves repetitive tasks, and the streaming video on my Incredible was, if not incredibly fast, good enough that I could catch up on TV shows which I could not make time for at home. Now, after a factory reset and Froyo, the sites which I used to stream these shows from no longer work properly on my Incredible. I actually tried several of them, including zshare, novamov, smotri, wisevid, divxden - most of these worked good enough prior to Froyo, now they all act strangely, just enough to waste my time, and then crash.
I almost thought I was ready to stop burning time making Incredible and Android work for me, and start making it work in my life. A deciding factor which sold me on this phone was the streaming video capability which others lacked at the time - and why should any smart phones not have this capability, which has been available on PCs for 10 years, in a time when smart phones can download web pages nearly as fast as Road Runner service actually does? Now that Verizon and HTC have my money, they start restricting what I can do with it, just like everybody else. Screw you, Android, HTC, Verizon, and every fanboy who defends the trojan horse they call Froyo! You fanboys, especially, who enable these frauds with your relativistic arguments. Yes, I probably am using Android and not an Apple phone because I like bluetooth, wi-fi, and my own choice of battery power, but none of that excuses the promise of features which don't actually perform - this is what the unbrainwashed would call fraud!
I badly need a good video player with playlist support and shuffle.
I have one of those cheap Chinese ICS tablets (btw working pretty good) and I planned to use it in my car to let my 17 month old daughter watch some videos I got from YouTube while driving home from our vacation. That is a 7 hours drive and she won't handle it without some entertainment. However I cannot find a suitable app, paid or free
I got so far
- Act Player.. does the job but only on Gingerbread (I have a GB Galaxy S phone). On ICS the playlist feature does not work
- Vplayer - does not support shuffle and after 4th or 5th video starts to stutter
- Mobo player - does the job but does not support shuffle and the little monster is getting tired of the first 10 vids she has to watch all over again every day
I sometimes download some TV stuff. The formats are MPEG-4 and AVI. I tried to just drag and drop them onto my XT720. When I tried to play them back, it didn't work. Are there any free video converters?
