Since there are lots of posts about video on the Motorola Xoom and some Xoom users have the issues about finding the settings that work best for the media content on Xoom as they wish. The article here is to help you set Motorola Xoom supported video format in optimized settings according to your content and specific scenario.
As you know, digital video formats are quite complicated. There is the video container (mp4, mkv, avi, wmv, etc), the video format (mpeg-4, wmv, mp4, flv, etc) and the audio format (aac, mp3, wma, m4a, mka, ogg, etc). On top of that there are different container profiles. For video there are some options like bitrate, frame rate and video resolution to consider. Generally, the bigger bitrate, the better video quality while the larger file size.
How to get Xoom video format with the settings you need? Below are some useful tips you may need.
For DVDs, you can use a professional DVD to Xoom Converter to help you rip DVD to Xoom playable format such as MPEG-4/H.264 MP4. If you are tight on space of Xoom, just choose video bitrate as 4Mbps in profile settings. If you want the ripped DVD movies to look good on Xoom, you can choose 10 or 12Mbps. If you would like to get the best quality for Xoom, you can go up to 20Mbps at 30fps and Xoom should still be able to handle it. Realistically, 20Mbps will probably look as good as 15Mbps, but will just use up more space compared with other bitrates.
For Blu-ray discs, you can use an easy-to-use yet powerful Blu-ray to Xoom Converter to help you rip Blu-ray 1080p HD movies to H.264 .mp4 format compatible with Xoom in high quality, as well as convert Blu-ray 1080p video to HDTV supported format so as to watch Blu-ray 1080p HD movies on your HDTV via Xoom HDMI.
(1) If you only plan to play Blu-ray movies on Xoom, you should consider about its storage at first. So, it is necessary to choose lower bitrate but 20Mbps. And 10Mbps at 30 or 23.97 fps is recommended here. As side note, you can set video resolution as 1280x754 to get full screen playback on Xoom, because the recommended resolution can easily help you remove black borders from the playing video on Xoom due to its active menu-bars.
(2) If you would like to enjoy Blu-ray movies on your widescreen HDTV but Xoom, you can choose video resolution as 1920x1080 (full HD 1080p resolution) at 30 fps to get full HD quality. But the ripped Blu-ray files will take more space of your Xoom. In other words, you couldn't copy a full Blu-ray movie on Xoom.
For non-disc videos, you can use a comprehensive Xoom Video Converter to help you convert the video format to Xoom supported video format, like H.264 .mp4. Obviously, you can get away with 4Mbps and up with varying degrees of quality. If you are tight on space of Xoom, just choose video bitrate as 4Mbps in profile settings. If you focus on good video quality, just choose video bitrate as 15Mbps. If you want to set other parameters to adjust video quality, just set frame rate as 23.97 or 30 fps. Generally, the bigger frame rate, the bigger file size with better quality. If you want to get full screen playback on Xoom, you just need to set video resolution as 1280x754 which can help you remove black borders from the playing videos on Xoom due to its active menu-bars.
That's all! Hope the article of best Xoom video format with optimized settings helps!
