View Full Version : Are there any good (free) video converters for pc > android devices?

Just wondering since I'm trying to chuck a few vids onto my galaxy mini for entertainment. Only a couple play obviously due to the video codec used (audio is fine), and one of the players from the store was stuttery, froze and crashed 3 seconds in.

So I figured I'd better downsize and re encode them before putting them on instead. Any free converters out there able to do this?

Freemake video converter might work

Coz the CPU / GPU on those things are a bit low-powered.
Convert it to some sort of 320x240 XviD with MP3 audio in an MP4 container, and you should be fine.

Handbrake should be able to do this hassle-free.

DivX what I personally use.

XviD is basically DivX, they're both MPEG-4 Part 2 (I think) / ASP. It's just XviD is open source, more actively developed, slightly better quality, available on more platforms, and free.

Decoders for them are interchangeable though.

xmedia looks like it'll do the trick. Thanks for the suggestions all :)
