How to: Encode videos in mp4

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

  1. thanx a lot man

  2. I hope it works for the conversion of MP3 videos to MP4 videos format.

  3. Hi there, you DO need to change the video scale size it has to be 320×240 (QVGA) if you leave the No change option and the source video has a higher resolution than QVGA the file will not play correctly, The only Nseries that is able to VGA h264 videos is the N96 and it isn’t out yet. Plus you can have 30 fps in some Nseries, like the N95, N82, N93. Regards.

  4. crap theres no link to download!!!!

  5. This is a very good tip especially to those new to the
    blogosphere. Brief but very precise info… Thanks for sharing this one.
