Google-Nexus-One-vs-HTC-Desire

I just wanted to share the settings I use to convert video for the Nexus One with Handbrake (the freeware video converter). The Nexus One has a wonderful screen and it would be a shame to not use it for video podcasts. But some podcasts (the Nasa Edge for example) encode their 720p video in a way the Google phone does not recognize.

I included the screenshots of the important settings and if you want to set them in a quick way just select the ipod classic preset und change the settings to 800 pixel width, Anamorphic none and the Avg Bitrate to 1500 kbps and the Audio to 2 channel AAC and you are done. Enjoy.

thanks! I’ll try those settings. Helpful to have someplace to start – handbrake is a great all around app.

    If you have video material in SD (Standard Definition) you don’t need to enter 800 pixels. SD in the US is 640×480 so it should show nicely on your phone after the conversion. If you still think that there is something missing try enter 400 pixes in the height setting.

Hi, i tried several conversions with handbrake. The converted videos played nicely on my macbook alu, late 2008. However, once i transferred them over to my HTC Desire, the audio and video goes out of sync.

Do you happen to have a solution for this? Or am i doing anything wrong?

Thanks alot for your help! Appreciate it!

    It’s a little bit difficult to know exactly why this happens. I had some problems starting from AVI’s – but note that many video players on PCs (or Macs) have advanced engines who can fix out of sync audio/video. I don’t know if the stock video player on the desire has this abilites.

Ah. I guess there is still no solution then. Thanks for your help anyway!

Cheers. :)

btw, I tried Act1 video player, and mvideoplayer and the stock HTC video player, getting the same out of sync issue.
