CREATING CUSTOM SLIDESHOWS WITH YOUR PHOTOS
(NOT same as animated/slide show wallpapers discussed earlier)
The slide show function in 'My Photos' has limitations. It doesn't provide full screen slide shows and only two options for time setting -slow and fast. you can create full screen (landscape) slideshows for viewing in phone using PC studio. You can add background music to the slide show and adjust the duration of each photo as you like. Also you can add subtitles, title slide and end slide for the show(this only in pc studio ver.3.1) It has the advantage that as you can save the slideshow in memory card, photos can be deleted from My photos folder to free phone memory.
See it yourself; here is a sample slide show. Download it to pc, then copy to 'DOWNLOADED VIDEOS' folder, play and press 1 for full screen. However the photos used in this show are not taken with phone's camera.
Making such slide shows is very easy with PC studio, may not be new to most of you; still if you feel that you want help for a start, this fully illustrated guide will help you:
PC STUDIO VERSION 3.0
PC STUDIO VER.3.1
KYLE; In my opinion, it is an excellent mp3 player when used with the given stereo headset. i shall give you a little description of it.
You can launch the player with a single keypress from the main screen (by default it is 'down' navigation key) There are 4 playlists to which you can add and remove songs from the phone/external memory. After the player is opened, pressing 'up' key will open the current play list. then use the 'left', 'right' keys to go to other play lists easily. Once you have selected a song in any play list, there are three options; play that song rpeatedly, play that playlist once or repeat that play list continously. There is a shortcut key (3) to change this mode. Also there is a shuffle mode in which songs are played in random order. you can play/pause/stop/fast forward or rewind a song. There are 4 preset equalisers- Rock, classical, jass and normal. There is a 3D sound effect, big difference if you turn on this. The music output in D900 is digitally amplified. Also you can hear part of a song repeatedly any times.The phone supports 'music while multitasking'- you can do most of the functions except taking photo, video etc, while hearing music.
However it is said that each play list contains only 30 songs at a time(30x4=120songs). I haven't checked it till now. Thereafter you may have to remove a song FROM PLAYLIST to add another. REMOVING A SONG FROM PLAYLIST WILL NOT REMOVE IT FROM THE PHONE MEMORY/CARD.
I think you can well replace it for an ipod. And remember, the D900 is not mere an mp3 player; it is a fantastic phone with 3MP camera, EDGE class10, bluetooth ver.2 and many other cool features.
Hey! i figure out on my own how to change the resolution of the video. Just go to multi media manager-create-movie converter at there u can change ur video resolution and format. it has 3gp and mp4 too. isnt it awesome!? however when i wanna transfer files straight from the pc to my phone SD card, why can i view the SD card in my pc?
CRAIG; To know what is a TV output (i.e, TV out cable) see tip29 on this page: (click)
JANICE; 1024x436 ?? Strange size for a video!!! Please make sure.
Anyway you can't convert it to 352x288. Always convert your videos to QVGA, that is 320x240. You can do it with PC studio
JANICE; No need to copy the video to phone. The converted format may be not supported by the phone in some way. (for example, if the audio component is in mp3 format, the video won't be played) That is why I suggested you to convert the source video AGAIN to 3 gp with Acala 3gp software. Movies converted with this software works without problem in my phone.
I'm planning to get this model and I'd like to know a little bit more about the mp3 feature. I really don't care about the capacity as long as I can use 1gb sd card but I am wondering that it is really convenient to use the phone as an mp3 player so that I might able to replace my ipod with it. It doesn't have to be as easy as ipod to use but any opinion or comment from ppl who use this phone as an mp3 player on daily basis would be appreciated!
how to you adjust the size of video from 1024x436 into 325 288 without cropping? im using samsung pc studio btw.
I download the animated GIF's they work fantastic.
Thanks to all for the tip.
what is the tv out put is that it has tv on like 7 9 and 10 or is it something else
Hey does anyone know if I could get the gold wires that read the sim card fixed?? I kind of did something stupid with it and I was just wondering if its possible to be replaced or fixed? PLEASE HELP!!
its in 3gp format already? btw this way can i play video straight from the SD card using the phone? or does the video must be copied into the phone itself first?
DESIDUDE; Great contribution desidude! I've tried it. I recommend all of you to download these gif wallpapers. They are real animations of size 240x320 and can be set as FULL SCREEN wallpapers. (See Desidude's post, a few rows below)
DESIDUDE; Thanks dude, for thelink. (The boss is D900 :-D ) I shall post my opinion after downloading the file. Are the GIFs of size 240x320 or their multiple? I had tried gifs as wall paper, but the problem was they do not occupy full screen and the boring pattern is seen in their background. I have no gif editor for changing their size to 240x320. Thanks again
Hi Janice, The video part should be in 3gp or 3gpp format (not 3gp2/3gpp2) and audio part should be aac/amr format (not mp3). Try converting using another software. Many are available in the web. Here is the link to Acala 3gp converter and Acala dvd-3gp ripper. Both are free.
To rajesh...and all forum members
sorry dude for not responding to your mail. i got all the pictures of accessories. as somebody suggested here that gif animated pictures can be set as wallpapers, i tried to download some of them in my d900. and the outcome was simply mindblowing. it looks so nice and beautiful that all my friends are asking about all those stuffs. i downloaded it from net and here with i am sending the dl link in rapidshare .guys, u cannt believe it is worth downloading . the file size is around 38 mb but it contains the best of the best animated gifs which can be set as wallpapers in your d900 and other supported samsung cells.
i request rajesh to look into it and give expert opinion ( as u r the boss ) and if possible include in usmans website.
just set it as wallpaper as you set other wallpapers and see the amazing difference.
if anybody finds more than this (good quality ) kindly give the dl link here.
