Blackberry Encode Guidance Needed
on Nov 26, 2011 at 11:03:08 pm

A client needs video encoded for playback on current Blackberry devices. I've found conflicting info about which format is best 3GP or mp4. H.264 with baseline profile is mentioned here and there. Most presets for 3GP seem to have a max resolution of 320x240, but I've also seen recommendations for 640x480. Are 16x9 resolutions ok or must the video be letterboxed? Are there only certain frame rates? Any light shed on this is most appreciated.

The struggle with the blackberry(s) is the variety of sizes and fix.

Many support 16x9, I have a feeling that straight MPEG4 are best...

here's two documents from blackberry's site
