What do you'll think of the galaxy beam? I think its the ultimate phone out there! The only advantage the galaxy S has over the beam is the 200mhz faster processor. Other then that the beam has a flash, projector, larger battery, smaller screen like omnia's(not too big) and standard at 16gb memory. Great phone!

So there may be some issue... I was using my Windows 7 by the way
In my booklet about divx video it says
Divx certified to play divx video up to 640 x 480,including premium content..
I cannot find out a frame rate but suspect it would be 30fps..This info may help someone..Also when i used nokia pc suite to convert video to play on a device it was poor and pixelly...Kies has a video converter in it but have not tried it..
hamid, 07 Jul 2010Mo,
hyperx meant u cant update ur phone through pc studio updater after flashing to his roms.... moreMo n Hamid,
Hey guys i see there a discussion on flashing to official firmwares!! Hamid right, HyperX did say that u would be able to connect to PC Studio for Updating.... Just to test that out i tried connecting to the Updater and it started up fine but when it got to the part where it detects the phone it fails saying " No phone is connected" so i tried it on my windows xp since it has all the drivers, but still no dice!! So i guess its not possible, and also if u intend on flashing from a Cooked ROM to an official firmware release then u need to know that the prcedures are very slightly different!!

I convert my videos with the COWON Media Center - jetAudio...and i generally convert my videos in avi formats...

You want to do this flash back to e.g. an old italian fw then u can update ur phone officially throgh the updater...
i think Symbios did this long a go, so he has more correct info...
angel252, 05 Jul 2010Can anyone tell me what kind of video format I should convert my video downloads to, in order ... more***If you are using Windows 7***
Plug in your device via USB as MEDIA TRANSFER...
Drag the video from your hard drive to the E Drive in your Omnia HD. The system will prompt you to "JUST COPY" or "CONVERT AND COPY". Choose the latter and Windows 7 automatically converts the video into the best format compatible for the our device. Now, you won't have to go through all those hassles of converting your video!
Another option is:
On the topic, does anyone know what will happen if i convert a normal movie with a resolution of say 300x400 with a frame rate of 23fps to:
1.) A resolution of 720x1280
2.) A frame rate of 30fps
Will it increase or decrease the quality? It can't possibly increase but will it make a diff? Should it be converted to a lower resolution instead of a higher one? That's what i believe. Also whats the best quality format that supports this phone?

oh my goodness,,it took me a long while to learn all this lot about video formats...I could not understand why one nokia fone could play this qcif video in 2004 but the other model still 2004 could and after about a couple of years i found out after a lot of research,, the bitrate was different..I had a qcif 15fps .MP4 video 90 seconds long and all the problems boiled down to bitrate and i can remember the models,,nokia 7610 would not play it but 6630 would..yet both only recorded 15fps ,mp4 qcif videos.
there is video size
sub qcif at the bottom quality = 124 x 96 pixels
thru to the normal vga nowadays =640 x 480 pixels..
there is types of video
.3gpp,.3gp,.mp4,.MP4,mkv,divx,avi and more
then there is fps from 7fps on my sharp gx30 to 120 slomo on some samsungs
this last setting on some machines selects quality and that can alter bitrate..
It is a nightmare so after buying the sandisk v-mate ive never looked back..You plug it into tele and into a record source such as dvd player ,,set the settings i use qvga 25fps medium quality and tape onto micro sd card or sd or memory stick and its done..
Someone will know the best settings for omnia hd but it could be an odd resolution for eg nokia 5800 had a setting of 240 x 180 for it to play at its best,or something like that..Video formats my goodnes its a science on its own..
hamid, 05 Jul 2010Almost any standard format lower than 1280*720 @24fps... divx, xvid, mp4, 3gp, flv, and more I'm sorry, what does 24fps mean? I'm really bad at this stuff. And they're just some t.v. series episodes I downloaded and tried to convert, using RealPlayer converter, but i have no idea what to set the conversion settings to.
