Transcoding into tablet?
« on: December 26, 2011, 07:22:52 am »
Hello to everyone here, I have recently buy a tablet (don't have the time or money for an Ultrabook, well... at least for now) and I've been trying to get my vids working, downloading video players, among other things. Turns out that these Japanese anime vids are too much for tablets to handle (all laggy and stuff...), so I looked up on the codecs a bit - it turns out that H264 compression is divided into "profiles" and "levels", I'm familiar with codecs, but I'm not too savvy on these. Any idea on which level the tablet can handle?

I have a transcoding software hanging on my PC, so I can transcode and downscale them just fine. Hardsubbing is another story...

FYI, my tablet is Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1
btw, I'd also like to ask if there's any app out there that can stream movies from PC.

basing my opinion on http://www.samsung.com/global/microsite/galaxytab/10.1/spec.html i would say for you to use CBP or BP or XP or MP and and to encode with levels below 5.

Make some experiments with some levels and profiles and you'll get your perfect encoding setings for the tablet

about profiles - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/H.264/MPEG-4_AVC#Profiles
about levels - en.wikipedia.org/wiki/H.264/MPEG-4_AVC#Levels

I guess Level 3.1 would be compatible with a lot of hardware that support h264. Do it in .mp4 format as well.
