    Default Sony/ mpeg1 - mpeg 4 / compatability / conversion software ?

    :

    I have a data base of mpeg files created on a sony cybershot dsc-p92-5mp,i apparently need to convert the file format to mpeg4 format before I can transfer them to a sony ericsson p910i pda mobile phone for viewing/sharing etc.
    Does anyone know of suitable software which is

    understandable
    workable
    fast

    and actually gives a finished result that works !!

    Mpeg1 is very low resolution. Reencoding it again to Mpeg4 would result in further loss of resolution and I doubt you would be pleased with the end results.

    If you want to at least try it though then take a look here: http://www.artech365.com/

    will try your advice,unless ofcourse you can think of a way of enabling the sony p910i to view the mpeg1 files ? i rang the sony ericsson technical helpline,thats a laugh ! , like ringing sesame street for phone a friend on millionaire !, they said due to the simbian software on the unit it would not be able to play the mpeg 1 files,they said i could not load another program onto it ? what do you think ?

    I think they are probably right. They wouldn't have any commercial interest in not allowing you to play mpeg1 files on it. I don't know for sure though.
