How to make incompatible videos and movies playable on Samsung Galaxy S8?
What if your videos and movies are not compatible with Galaxy S8? Convert them first! Check out a step by step instruction on how to convert incompatible media for playing on Samsung S8 smoothly.
Do as below:
Step 1: Click “Add File” to load video files you want to convert.
Step 2: Click “Profile” to select “Samsung Galaxy S8 (*.mp4)” as output format.
Step 3: If necessary, you can click “Settings” to modify video and audio parameters like encoder, resolution, frame rate, bitrate, aspect ratio, sample rate, and audio channels. You can also “enable 3D Settings” to add 3D effect to your source media.
“File size = bitrate (kilobits per second) x duration”, so if you want to generate a file with small file size, simply adjust the video bit rate to a lower value. However, to ensure a good playback quality on your device, you’d better set the video bitrate to a value not lower than 2,000 kbps.
Step 4: Click “Convert” to start converting videos for Galaxy S8
As soon as the conversion is complete, click “Open Folder” to get the generated MP4 files that are suitable for playing on your S8.
