I think your the one I need to ask I tried to play a video of what I taking from my phone try to play it on the inerllink but the avi does not light up for me to press can you help phone is a galaxy 3 hope you can help me not sure what iam doing
The problem is that the AVI format is not a universal standard, it is just a container for the video and audio.There are a multitude of codecs for compressing the video and audio, your PC or Mac has the ability to auto download codecs so that it can play most videos, unfortunately most standalone players will only accept a narrow range.If you have an xbox, playstation,DVD playeror Tv that will accept movies on a USB stick, then you will have the same issues with codecs.There is software out there that will convert video from one format to another.
like Dizzy said AVI is not a standard so you will get some that just wont work without the codec.
im not sure about playing a video straight from the phone i use a usb drive in the car for music and films, i could never get anything working with my nexus 4 android, so i got rid of it and bought the new iphone and it works really well in the car.
we got good taste as we when for the same model and colour going too see how too get the video working on the w/end got the music via blue tooth phone is galaxy 3 did have I phone but before the upgrade had too use the lead so change too the galaxy 4 but cant get the brinngGo app so had too settle for the galaxy 3 in the end gutted as I did like the galaxy 4
It's in French but here is the translation of the part on how to convert a video:
I couldn't read an MP4. I've tried several video format encoding the video but in vain. No problem with an AVI. An AVI contains a video in XVID and an audio in AC3. A video with
640x360 pixels is displayed just fine in full screen mode.
Download videos in 16:9, if possible in HD. Videos in 1280x720 pixels encoded in MP4 give the vest result after they are converted in AVI.
The right video format for IntelliLink:
<code>Container : AVI
Video : XVID, 640x360 pixels, 1200 kbps
Audio : AC3, 44.1 kHz stereo, 192 kbps</code></pre>
To encode in AVI a video in MP4 with FFmpeg under Linux:
This command converts the video stream in XVID while resizing the image to 640x360 pixels with a bitrate of 1200 kbps and the audio stream in AC3 with a frequency of 44100 Hz and a bitrate of 192 kbps.
