How to Encode HD Video for Windows Phone 7

We know that Zune software has an automatic conversion tool but quality is not always what you’d expect or want. XDA member rvmax wrote an interesting guide on how to encode HD video in 720p or 1080p for your Windows Phone 7 devices. The guide includes a step by step installation with links to the required software, all of which are free and paid options for you to choose from. After finishing encoding, you can send the video to your mobile with Zune and it won’t convert it again.

Zune offers by default an automatic conversion of videos for Windows Phone 7. However the quality is not always what you want, the encoding time is endless and often lacks many options such as subtitles.

This guide was produced for encoding high definition video 720p or 1080p to Windows Phone 7. You can use the same method to encode videos lower quality but the result won’t be conclusive.

Software & Encoding Setup

Many programs exist to encode each with their advantages and disadvantages. Some are paying others do not.

VidCoder offers all the advantages: free, easy to use while providing many functionalities.

The encoding is configured with the following parameters:
Container
mp4 File

Video
800 x 480 resolution (default for Windows Phone 7) in order to have 1:1 pixel ratio
Codec : H264 2 Pass
Bitrate 1200 kbps

Audio
AAC Stereo 128 kbps

Experienced users can manually adjusted the settings.

PSA: You Can Optimize Your Note 4’s Recents Menu & RAM

The Note 4 never had the fastest Recents Menu, and despite its 3GB of RAM, its app-holding capabilities only got worse on Lollipop. The infamous RAM bug that plagued the S6 is indeed an annoyance on the Note 4's 5.0.X ROMs. Rumors of an update to fix all of this were confirmed with the first reports of the 5.1.1 update for the Russian Note 4, which seemingly improved the Recents Menu and RAM management.
