    Question Video size is limited?

    Hi,

    I have used handbrake to convert a DVD movie for playing on the Nexus S, according to settings found on this forum (
    http://www.nexusoneforum.net/forum/n...nexus-one.html) Basically the settings are the same than the iPhone, but with correct extensions and some tweaking. The video has only P/I frames, no B frames.

    When converting a 5min chapter, the resulting video was perfect! I got a 45MB file, which could be played in the stock player. However, after converting the whole DVD (file size of 1.1GB), using the same settings, then I get the message "Sorry, this video cannot be played". I tried other players but with the same issue.

    Then I partially encoded the movie, trying various number of chapters, still in h264 (x264) in handbrake. I noticed that a 155MB, 17 minutes file plays correctly, but not a 275MB. I don't know if the problem is size or duration, I would need to try different resolutions for that.

    Has anybody tried it? Has anyone got an idea? Is there a maximum size for videos?

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    Well, I cannot play it with RockPlayer, so I don't think the problem is the player itself.

    Anyway, I just tried to play it from the USB storage but on my computer. The file itself is ok, but VLC can play the 17 minutes file, but cannot play the longer one with this error:
    Code:
    No suitable decoder module: VLC does not support the audio or video format "undf". Unfortunately there is no way for you to fix this.
    I now suspect the problem lies with handbrake, that uncorrectly tags the stream formats (but why does it happen for a longer stream??). I will try to edit these files with avidemux or virtualdub to see what is inside.

    Must be the encoding options... cuz I play films of 600 to more than 1Gb with rock player.

    I'm using iPod or PSP setting with handbrake.

    I found the issue and it has nothing to do with the encoding, but with the uploading to the phone!

    Indeed, the original file is readable. I use Linux, with the KDE desktop. It seems that when the screen times out (or the phone goes to sleep), the upload is somewhat interrupted and the file is corrupted! Even if I took care to unmount the mounting point of the Nexus on the Linux filesystem.

    I tried again after I increased the screen timeout to 30 minutes, and it worked ! I was able to upload the 1.1GB file to the phone and the movie could be played.

    Is that a known issue, or am I doing something wrong?

    Besides, I still have difficulties to unmount the Nexus:
    Code:
    $ umount /media/35EE-1E0E/
    Unmount failed: Did not receive a reply. Possible causes include: the  remote application did not send a reply, the message bus security policy  blocked the reply, the reply timeout expired, or the network connection  was broken.
    The mounting point of the Nexus disappears though and the file is correctly uploaded. Has anyone encountered this problem (or has tips)?

    There are two great players that play almost anything, if not first then the other one - it's the RockPlayer and the VPlayer. I even played some 1080p with them and it lagged as a hell but worked! I never convert anything, just upload (or download right to the phone) regular 480p avi files and watch them with no problems.
