Recommend most usable movie format etc for digital picture frame?
May 09, 2021 05:44PM
It was $10 new in the box from a thrift store years ago, but any manual is long gone. That link says it plays: AVI, MPEG-1, MPEG-2, MPEG-4, Motion JPEG, but I can tell you I tried rendering to MP2 and MP4 and so far it didn't recognize the files. In this case I removed the soundtrack because it's me indoors shooting movies of wildlife. I don't know if that's the reason it doesn't play and wonder if yo all have especially successful template specs?

So yesterday i tried rendering homemade .mov(s) of wildlife here, some deer, turkeys, drunks OH ba doom shhhh :-D

It's something I don't need 60 frames per second, but with an 800 x 600-something screen I wondered if this falls under 720p or less and 24, 25, 30 fps, NTFS, PAL.... getting hairy here.

Thanks for the help! I know someone who will really like little videos on that.

try with 800 x 600 - you will have zero joy with 720 unless the box can magically autoscale - id be doing mine around 480 or similar and seeing how thet goes... most of teh time the picture frame stuff works with 640x480 or 320x240

Breaking stuff since 1994 :-)
