The Quicktime format provides an H.263 codec. To use select File>Export>Movie. Click "Settings". In the File Type Drop Box select "QuickTime". Select "Video" in the left pane. In the "Compressor" Drop Box select "H.263". Then Hit "Configure" at the right of the box if you wish to select the Image resolution. The hit "OK" then "Save". And you're done.
Thanks for the answer!
Well, that works for selecting the codec. But then, it saves them as *.mov . My mobile phone however needs *.3gp and my psp *.mp4 .
So it still doesn't give me the right files and I cannot use them.
I don't know if this helps or not but you can change them from mov to mp4 using this "flv to mp4" program. It also works for converting the mov file extension.
Use the "*.*" option when selecting the input files so they'll show up in the dialog box. The program only gives you one option *.flv but it appears to work for *.mov, *.avi, and *.mpeg (mpg) formats as well.
You can also edit the output parameters: FPS, width/height, audio by opening the profiles.xml file in a text editor
sure, why not using another program..
I would just like to do it in the so called "awesome Premiere Pro which can do everything" ...except making the vids you really need..
I thought it was H.264?
H.264 is the newer version. But nearly all the mobile phones here don't support that new codec! They need H.263 or then even H.261.
Same goes for PSP and PS3, with H.264 it only works for likely every 20th video and with H.263 every single one works without a problem.
H.264 is a Blu-ray standard. The PlayStation 3 should play such files without issue. If it isn't, something weird is going on.
H.263 files are not a part of the Blu-ray specification, so it would be very surprising if PS3 played them.
I can't speak towards the PlayStation Portable.
Well, so far H.264 didn't work for me on anything, except on my computer..
I'm just still trying to make a video with H.263 (or H.261) as *.3gp since that's the standard for nearly all mobile phones they're selling here. I don't know, why this isn't included in Premiere Pro CS3
Thanks for the info. Didn't know there were others.
Yes, I have installed Device Central. But that isn't really helpful to me. Most of the Mobile Phones there aren't buyable in European stores, and the ones we actually have, aren't in Device Central. Neither is mine.
Yes, I read that already many times. It says H.264 should go, but that simply doesn't work for "older" Mobile Phones (which is like 95% of the phones we have on stores here...).
I can't help but think of several CNET mobile phone reviews where some new sleek, stylish phone gets raved about, and at the same time complained about because it's only available in Europe, not the US.
As I said earlier, there's always Quicktime Pro. For the $50 investment you can export MOV files as H.263.
I don't need to buy Quicktime Pro for that. I already can export mov files as H.263
It's just, as long as they're mov they're useless for me.
Sorry, my bad. What I meant was you can transcode MOV files to H.263. This includes 3GP.
I am having the same problem and I bet it's got to do with licensing and what's "allowed" in the new version. Don't stress though because after a lot of digging I found a program called Super (c) (google super converter).
It's free and gives you a wide variety of codecs to use. I found the following helpful in encoding for Motorola K1:
OUTPUT CONTAINER: mp4 (might have to play with this for other compatibility)
OUTPUT AUDIO: AAC
FRAME RATE: 15 fps
OPTIONS: HQ, 48k
BITRATE (AUDIO) 48
