Video Encoding Format for Mobile

I’ve recently been working on encoding video for mobile devices and these are the best settings for the current device set that will support Flash:

Preferred Alternate
Video codec H.264 Constrained Baseline Profile, up to 30 fps On2 VP6 Simple Profile or Sorensen Spark, up to 30 fps
Audio codec AAC-LC, 44.1 kHz, stereo MP3, 44.1 kHz, stere
Wi-Fi 3G EDGE/1x-RTT
Combined bit rate (audio and video) 500 kbps

(350 kbps for On2 VP6 and Sorensen Spark)

350 kbps 100 kbps
Max resolution 480 x 320 320 x 240
Max audio bit rate 160 kbps

(128 kbps for On2 VP6 and Sorensen Spark)

64 kbps 32 kbps

So the next step is to take those settings and plug them into Adobe Media Encoder like this:

Adobe Media Encoder - audio and video settings

I’ve created a video preset file of these settings that you can import into the Adobe Media Encoder. You can download it here and import it like this:

1. Click the Import Preset button .
2. Navigate to the location of the preset, select it, and then click Open.
