Android Honeycomb & Xoom Info

Video encoding

To convert DVDs for use with the Xoom, use handbrake.


I initially tried the iPad settings. This produced video that played back OK on the PC but exhibited significant dropped frames on the Xoom.

A bit of research turned up some options.

These didn't work:

Here is the approach that did work. I followed some instructions to start with the iPod Legacy profile and modify it for the Xoom. Though I didn't do exactly as it suggested. Here's what I did:

  1. Select iPod Legacy profile.
  2. Go to Picture Settings and check "Optimal for Source". Original instructions suggested setting it to 1280x720 or 1920x1080 for a 1080p source.
  3. Video should remain at h.264, framerate same as source, and average bit rate 2200.
  4. I didn't change anything in the audio tab. The instructions suggested setting samplerate to 48 kHz and bitrate to 160.
  5. Uncheck "large file size", "web optimized", and "iPod 5g support".
  6. Save this as a new preset for future reference.
