What video formats does iPod touch 5 support?

ASK

  • Though iPod Touch 5g hasn't been released, I will buy one. It's stronger than I thought. I think it's worthy to pay. But I want to know the video formats it can play on its 4-inch display. Any body help?

Answer

ipod touch 5
Apple launched a range of new devices on September 12th, including iPhone 5, iPod touch 5 and iPod nano 7. iPod touch 5 owns thinner and lighter body. It comes in colours, much funny than iPod touch 4. The 4-inch display is as large as iPhone 5, but one hand still rules the screen. The new Retina display got taller but now wider. A 5-megapixel iSight camera will capture pictures in your life and shoot 1080p HD video. iPod touch 5 becomes more and more excellent.

Like iPhone 5, iPod touch 5 can't play videos in any formats. Before uploading local videos to iPod touch 5, you have to check first.

Video Formats iPod Touch 5 supports
  • H.264 video up to 720p, 30 frames per second, Main Profile level 3.1 with AAC-LC audio up to 160 Kbps, 48kHz, stereo audio in .m4v, .mp4, and .mov file formats
  • MPEG-4 video up to 2.5 Mbps, 640 by 480 pixels, 30 frames per second, Simple Profile with AAC-LC audio up to 160 Kbps per channel, 48kHz, stereo audio in .m4v, .mp4, and .mov file formats
  • Motion JPEG (M-JPEG) up to 35 Mbps, 1280 by 720 pixels, 30 frames per second, audio in ulaw, PCM stereo audio in .avi file format

Convert Videos to iPod Touch 5
Besides the video formats mentioned above, other popular video formats, such as .avi, .mpeg, .wmv, are not able to be played on iPod Touch 5 directly. After uploading them to iPod Touch 5, it will display "unsupported file format". So, make conversions between them and iPod Touch 5 video formats.

MP4 Converter is a totally FREE tool which converts almost all of the popular video formats to mp4. It provides kindly interface and easy operating steps. Parameters are allowed to be set, such as encoded types (H.264, MPEG-4).

How to Play DVD on Nokia Lumia 920

nokia lumia 920

Nokia Lumia 920 and Lumia 820 will be unveiled this wednesday at a press event in New York. Unlike the Lumia 900, which was held back by WP7's antiquated hardware requirements, the 920 is a bona fide superphone. Both of the two smartphones base on Windows 8.

The bright spot is wireless charging, which will be provided via a built-in magnetic induction loop. The phones will reportedly support the Qi wireless power standard, developed by the Wireless Power Consortium. With Qi tech, you will be able to charge the Lumia 920 by simply placing it on a wireless charging mat. In theory, you should be able to use a generic Qi charging mat ($10-15), or you can buy a very colorful wireless charging mat from Nokia which will probably cost more. The 4.5-inch Lumia 820 and 920 handsets will use inductive charging in which contacts on the device will line up with contacts on a charging pad.

After being bundled with PureView, they can capture up to 41 megapixels of digital information.  It owns a 4.3-inch AMOLED display with the resolution of 1280 × 720. Nokia Lumia 820 is expected to feature 8GB of storage, and 920 is expected to feature 32GB of device storage, and 1GB of RAM. All of above are supported by a 1.5GHz dual-core processor and 2000 mAh battery capacity.

The HDMI support allows your phone to stream photos and videos to your LCD TV using an HDMI cable. But if you want to play DVD on Nokia Lumia 920, this unidirectional port isn't able to do this. The only way is ripping videos from DVD.
