Hi,

I need to encode files for 3G smartphones.
So I look in preset and there something that I don't understand :

h264_768Kbps_360p MPEG-4 video for progressive download on fast 3g network connections.
has a smaller resolution than the 2G for the same data rate/secondů
Gen2_x264_720Kbps_480p AVC Main Profile. Compatible with Apple TV (2G), iPad, and iPhone/iPod touch, and Android (2G) devices.

Why a smaller resolution ?

Thanks for your information
Paul

768 x 360 < 720 x 480

Math: It's a killer !

Oops... sorry but I don't understand...

h264_768Kbps_360p makes 640x360
Gen2_h264_768Kbps_480p makes 640x480

What did you mean exactly ?

Ouh la... bonze but I'am getting lostů where do have I to look ?

I almost know customizations, but I don't understand why the preset "h264_768Kbps_360p" (for MPEG-4 video for progressive download on fast 3g network connections) has a smaller resolution than the "Gen2_x264_720Kbps_480p" (for AVC Main Profile. Compatible with Apple TV (2G), iPad, and iPhone/iPod touch, and Android (2G) devices)

Could you help me a little bit more ?

err... No.

You'll need to go back to the correct forum for your software.

This is not the Squeeze forum you are looking for :D

I don't mean to deter you from here but you might try afterdawn.com forum for video related goodies.

It certainly helped when I started coding movies for my Nokia Internet Tablet.
