View Full Version : Longest Video Playback Possible on a 128 MS

How much video could I possibly cram onto a 128MB Memory Stick? I have some good clips of my son that I want to put on my Clie N760C, and I figue I should be able to get about 8 minutes with PictureGear and Gmovie, right?
Or are there better compression methods out there?

You should be able to fit 8 minutes. I don't use GMovie or picture gear, but use Kinoma instead. This program gives lots of options on how a source video is converted. You just need to have your video in Quicktime, AVI, or MPG format then use Kinoma Producer on your desktop, available here (http://www.kinoma.com), to convert it to a video viewable on your Clie using Kinoma. I have several TV shows at 480x320 with Yamaha audio (for the T/NR/NX/NZ speaker and headphones) at 85-90 MB, thus fitting on a 128 MB card. So your 8 minutes video at 320x320 with clie audio should easily fit. I have 23-minute videos at 320x320 at 50 MB.

When I convert video, I generally get about 10 minutes for about 25 Meg. So, I can fit an hour-long episode (without commercials, it's about 45 minutes) onto a 128-Meg stick.
But, it very much depends on what kind of encoding you do. The higher the quality, the more space it takes. If you are willing to endure poor quality at postage-stamp size, you could probably get a two-hour movie onto one stick. But, you won't like it.

I do the same thing. I've got several 30sec videos with sound of my son on my clie using kinoma. It blows Gmovie out of the water in terms of viewability and sound (I've a T615C so being able to use the in built speaker was a must that Gmovie left out)
If you purchase Kinoma Producer ($30, player is free). You'll probably want the following settings when converting:
ClieAudio at 33 kbits/sec
Those settings work well on my T 615C. I can use ClieAudio now because I've got the audio adapter.
(Prefer Ni+H myself)
check out the files at www.Clieflix.com if you want to see some examples. They just posted episodes of South Park, King of the Hill and others.

I find a 2 hour movie to be very bearable on a 128mb..just screw aroudn with the encoding sections to get best quality/size ;D
