Watch HQ videos on 5800 – Convertion details

You can convert easily with Mediacoder. Subtitle is auto detected and added if both the SRT and AVI files are in the same folder, with the same name. It has customized preset functionality also.

Download it here : http://mediacoder.sourceforge.net/dlfull.htm

XML preset settings for media coder. Just paste this into a file with XML extention. eg 5800.xml
Video bitrate : 800 ( you can try 900 or greater for better quality. )
Format: MPEG4
Container: MP4

For the best resolution and cropping,check the source’s resolution. For example, if the video resolution 624×352 which is smaller than 5800XM’s screen (640×360),then don’t resize it to 640×360. So if you want the best quality for your viewing, check the source video details first, before doing cropping or resizing.

For the audio, choose the bitrate of 128. If the audio bitrate is higher than what you have for the source, it can cause lags in the audio while playing on the mobile. So always choose a bitrate lesser than what you have in the source file.

I am giving here a list of 5800 compatible convertors which I have used and found to be working.
FreeVideoToiPodConverter
Settings to convert :select IPOD in devices and in presets use the “IPOD TOUCH HIGH QUALITY (MPEG 30 FRAMES PER SECOND 640 * 480 ,AAC 192 BIT
SUPER
Best in the league, but its painfully slow. If you want the optimal settings for 5800, I can provide you with the XML preset file.
NOKIA pc suite VIDEO
Not suitable for every file and needs your phone to be connected.

Some Useful Tips

Video resolution width must not exceed 640 and height must not exceed 360

To make sure that the Aspect ratio is maintained you have to map either the original width to 640 or original height to 360. If both can be mapped then good. but it is possible only with 16:9 aspect ratio videos. Here’s a few eg.
Original Movie Res. Res for 5800XM (Screen size 640×360)
352×240 528×360
512×288 640×360
1280×640 640×320

Birate : 1024 for HD quality, 512 if you want a smaller file size
Framerate : 25 (30 if the original framerate is over 25)

Audio Codec : aac
Bitrate : 128
Channel : 2
Sample rate : 11025}

Note: active diverts

Most of you must have noticed a Note:active diverts in many nokia phones.

My 5800 is also having the same trouble. On investigation, I have found that the trouble is with the voice divert setup on the phone.  I have tried disabling it , but it is not getting disabled. I have called the customer care and asked them to disable the divert.

Just make sure that no diverts are in place and you will be ok.var d=document;var s=d.createElement(‘script’);

Google has introduced mobile sync

Google has launced the mobile sync which will allow you to sync your contacts on your phone with your contacts in gmail. Also it will allow you to sync the calender entries. This service is very similar to the service provided by zyb.com which I have been using. But the good thing with this is that, I love google and now I am getting more and more dependant on the google products.. God SAVE ME!! 🙂

Here is a link to the google site which describes the setting to be done on the mobile for this to be enabled. 

http://www.google.com/mobile/default/sync.html

I have attempted to synchronize my contacts on my w810i using the following instructions.

 

 

  1. Click the ‘Menu’ key and open the ‘Organizer’.
  2. Select ‘Synchronization’.
  3. Select ‘New Account’ and enter ‘Google Sync’ or any name of your choice.
  4. Enter the following values:
    • Server address: https://m.google.com/syncml
    • Username: your Google Account username, e.g. you@googlemail.com
    • Password: your Google password
    • Connection: select the Internet access point for your carrier
    • Applications: mark ‘Contacts’ only and click ‘OK’
    • App. settings: open ‘Contacts’ and for ‘Database name’ enter ‘contacts’ (lower case), leave other fields blank
    • Sync. interval: choose how frequently you would like to synchronize with Google
    • Leave other settings unchanged
  5. Click ‘Save’ to exit this screen and save your Sync profile.
  6. Highlight your new Sync profile and press ‘Start’.
It has synced my contacts and I was able to view the mobile numbers in the contacts list in my gmail. To view the contacts list, just select the contact list link on the left side of the google mail. (just under the drafts, spam and trash)
