sansa e260


To whom it may concern,

Does anyone know the video format for the sansa e260 flash mp3 player. By video format I mean the bit rate etc. If you do can you please put it in this format: ffmpeg -i diddy2.avi -title pcd -f psp -r 14.985 -s 320x240 -b 512 -ar 24000 -ab 64 M4V00002.MP4

I know the files have to be mp4 files. Whoever replies to this message your answer will be greatly appreciated!

if you have access to a windows box, I would suggest running the software Sandisk "requires" you to use to transfer(and presumably convert) video files to the device. Cut 10 seconds or something out of an AVI(again, or something), and then transfer/convert it onto the device with the Sandisk software. Then take the converted video off the device and use that file to determine what resolution/format/etc is actually supported by the device. Or get Sandisk to publish what resolution/formats/etc are actually supported on their website. The best info I could find basically amounts to "you must use the supplied (WIndows) software to use video on the Sansa series of players" - that's all they say in the manual, zero mention of actual compatible file specs.

I'm just saying, if the software converts(and shrinks) the video, it'll take a while to do an entire, large/lengthy video. the length of the thing is irrelevant in this context, so while doing a test conversion, just to see the result, cut a sample out and then it won't take forever. the resolution, bitrate and codec will still be the same.

I would just launch the file in mplayer from a terminal personally, it will spit out numerous details about the file.

well, this is the relevant info:

The ffmpeg string in the OP would seem to be a good starting point. the mjpeg codec might be a sticking point, but basically put the format details above in that ffmpeg command. Mencoder might be an alternative application to use (though I believe Mencoder just uses ffmpeg anyway).

Cool

hi, after lots of searching i've end up on this website:

http://www.visi.com/~grante/sansa/

it seems that this codec isn't able to encode in linux...

so i installed rockbox yeah, rockbox r0x, now my mp3 reads, jpeg, mpg, and it even has lot of games:
