Converting Nokia 5800’s videos to WMM and Youtube

Thursday, January 28th, 2010

Nokia’s mobile phones and Apple’s iPods  records videos with .mp4 video format which isn’t supported by Windows Movie maker which I use to edit and compile videos. Therefore videos  have to be converted to .avi or .wmv which are supported by WMM.

Free and easy to use tool for the conversion is Pazera mp4 to avi converter. It supports many different output formats and has settings to change the bitrate and codec freely. I’ve messed around with different settings and found out that best option for importing to WMM is WMV v.2 codec. I’ve set the output bitrate to 3000  kbit/s which produces good quality videos.

After the conversion with Pazera converter I import the videos to WMM. Aspect ratio has to be set to 16:9 if the videos are recorded in widescreen format.

From WMM it’s easy to save the edited video with default recommended settings and the video is ready to be uploaded to Youtube.
