What format do you use for music and movies?

Hi,

I have been reading that some user get 200+songs, 3 seasons of tv shows all on to a 2GB card. I have a feeling that I'm might not be compressing my movies to the extreme or the format is not suitable for treos. I was wondering what format do you use for your music and movies in?


I use nero 6 to reencode the movies to mp4. Most of my movies are around 400-500MB.
Keeping good quailty and all how far can you compress Gladitor (or a fairly fast action pack movie)?

Is there better software/freeware instead of nero?

Also, I have all my music in the mp3 format and was wondering what is the smallest format for music?

What is the best format for high quailty audio?

What format do you recommend?


Thanks for the help

Well, I could never get that much video on, but they might have used a very low bitrate...
I had a lot of music though, I had it at 128KBPS and 48KHZ for MP3, it was about 1MB per Min.
Video, I used MP4 in PSP format

indeed, to get 3 whole seasons of TV alone on a 2GB card would mean having a very low bitrate.

even after converting The Rock (got it for only $5!!) it is about 400MB, at 300/128 (video bitrate/audio). anything lower than say 200 video bitrate would mean terrible quality, and huge pixels for fast action scenes. if you were watching a drama series, however, i don't think it would be a problem.

if you are just re-encoding an AVI or MPEG which you got from a DVD, i find that PocketDivXEncoder is great. it's freeware, and does a great job of converting supported formats (AVI, MPEG/MPG mostly) into AVI. there are also other programs out there like SUPER which can convert pretty much anything you throw at it,and it's pretty fast too. the downside is that the resulting output file has lower video quality than PocketDivXEncoder despite the same "bitrate" value (for example, setting the bitrate to 320 in SUPER would give lower quality video than would PDE).

Tricks for downsampling video:
1) set your audio to 22KHz instead of 40.
2) set your frames per second to 24 (decent) or 15 (slightly choppy). This will give you a SIGNIFICANT savings over 30fps.
3) set your video height to a maximum of 320 pixels. 320x240 is a good ratio for TV rips... widescreen you'll probably want something closer to 480x320.
4) encode in 2-pass xviD or in H.264.
5) If you don't mind monaural audio, encode the audio that way instead of stereo, to cut your audio storage size in half.

You'll find that a 320x240 15fps H.264 video with 48kbps 22KHz AAC audio (single channel) will give you extremely good compression, and still be viewable; it just won't look like DVD quality (more like old VHS quality).
