It's an N810 with latest firmware upgrade.

I've transferred some files to view on the tablet though I'm getting file format not supported in Media Player (kmplayer and canola2 won't play it either).

I've tried transcoding a video file using someone's post on how to run the command from another thread, being:
mencoder -o "movie.avi" -idx -cache 1024 -srate 32000 -oac mp3lame -lameopts vbr=3:br=96 -af volnorm -ofps 25 -ovc lavc -vf-add scale=512:304 -vf-add unsharp=c4x4:0.3:l5x5:0.5 -ffourcc FMP4 -force-avi-aspect 1.68 -lavcopts vcodec=mpeg4:vbitrate=600:autoaspect:idct=7:ildct: ilme:trell:cbp:mpeg_quant:vrc_buf_size=800:vrc_max rate=600 mymovie.avi

any ideas whats going on?
are there media codec updates which I need to perform?


thanks.

Two courses of action

a) use mplayer on the N810 (recommended)

b) use -ffourcc DIVX (not sure the Media Player knows about FMP4)

You said "transferred", so I assume another computer is involved. If so, you could always drag the file onto the Nokia Internet Tablet Video Converter.

Thanks, I'll try both options and get back to you.

* Doing the -ffourcc DIVX didn't work
* Using Nokia Internet Tablet Video Convertor works but my native OS is Linux and I'm only running Windows in a vmware app. To constantly transfer files between my Linux and Windows for transcoding, then transferring it to the tablet is a bit of mess.

There was also this Media Convertor utility (java) but I can't play these files either.

Maybe someone could provide his mencoder one-liner?


Thanks.

Any particular reason for not using mplayer ?

I'd like to use the native players. I don't see why mplayer would work yet everything else wouldn't.

Mplayer is a country of it's own. It has also got a fair share of tablet specific patches, so in most cases it plays things better than the 'native' ones. Try it. If the playback is choppy, change the audio sampling rate to 44100.

The native player won't play a file if the frame size is not a multiple of 16:

It will say "format not supported".

Mplayer has options like framedrop which allows you to play a file without conversion.
