A while ago I wrote the “official” video transcoding for Maemo how-to based on the wiki page and some heuristics. The interesting thing here is the intelligent script that automatically finds the right parameters to use for the encoding. Some of the considerations include: As higher framerate as possible. For smooth videos. Keep aspect-ratio. So the videos don’t look [...]

From the products’ introduction to well picked references, going through scratchbox, R&D mode and techspecs; this is probably the most hands-on introduction I’ve seen, and yet more [...]
