Which Video Formats to use?

Postby leroytrolley » Sun Jul 17, 2011 4:47 pm

Hi everyone.

I've been trying to develop a video app for android. I've been able to stream the videos from my server onto android devices.

I have found that .flv's do not appear correcly, they look like they have got interference on them. I have had success using .MP4 but the files sizes are huge, even when I use a small resolution.

Has anybody got any other suggestions on how I can have both good quality + smaller files sizes that will run on Android devices. I am using Flash CS5 to publish apps for android.

ALSO, I have found that when I have a video running and then got back to the main menu of the app, I can still hear the video playing in the background. Is there a "stop all" type command.

Develop video app using 3GPP (.3gp) or MPEG-4 (.mp4) is best for android devices..
