    Cool Streaming Movie Trailers for Xoom

    It has been a while since I last posted up some streaming sample trailers, so I figured it was time to do it again.


    The original trailers come from the Movie Trailer section on Apple's website, located here:


    http://trailers.apple.com/trailers/

    For the source video, I used the 1080p versions of the trailers, and converted them with DVD Catalyst 4 (4.2.1) to MP4 format using different resolutions.






    DVD Catalyst 4 is one of the most popular conversion applications for phones and tablets due to how easy it works (1 click conversions), the support provided to you when you need it (quick, hand-typed and detailed) and the very affordable pricing (on sale for $9.95, less than the price of 2 DVDs in the sales-bin at the grocery store).


    You can purchase DVD Catalyst 4 (Windows-only, sorry but no OS X version available at this time) by clicking here (link), or download the free trial version by clicking here (link). Note: the trial version converts 25% of each item.

    For more information about DVD Catalyst 4, visit the main website on www.tools4movies.com.

    For the settings, I started out with the Asus > TF700t 1080 HQXT profile, and (with "Power User" mode enabled), I changed the CRF setting in "Modify" to 20 to ensure the best possible quality video.




    Aside from that, I enabled "Streaming" in Global Settings > Tweaks.




    Because I have had a few people use the sample trailers for other purposes, and claim that they were converted by themselves and with different software, I found myself forced to enable the "Mark Video" option, which places a small text overlay in the video.





    Note: If you visit this page on your tablet/phone, tapping the video links will result in them playing while downloading. Please understand that these trailers are very high quality, and as a result, streaming them over a limited internet connection (3G/4G) will likely result in buffering issues, and of course, unless you have unlimited data, it will drain your available data plan as well. For best results, use WiFi to stream them.



    As mentioned earlier, I used these settings as a base for the conversions:





    For the 1080p versions, those were the exact settings used. For the other versions, all I did was change the resolution.



    The 1080p versions (1920x1080) play fine on Tegra2 and Tegra3 based devices (such as the Acer A100/200/500/700, Asus TF101,TF201,TF300, TF700t, Nexus 7, Xoom etc), as well as the iPad3 and Blackberry Playbook.


    The 720p versions (1280x720) play fine on all of the above mentioned devices, as well as the Galaxy Nexus, Galaxy S3, iPad 1 and 2, iPhone 4, iPod Touch 4.


    The 600p versions (1024x600) play fine on the above as well as the Kindle Fire and NOOK tablet.


    the 480p versions (800x480) play fine on all of the above, as well as the PS Vita and older Android phones and budget Android tablets.



    Here are the trailers:


    Bourne Legacy

    Source link: http://trailers.apple.com/trailers/u...ebournelegacy/

    Synopsis: The narrative architect behind the Bourne film series, Tony Gilroy, takes the helm in the next chapter of the hugely popular espionage franchise that has earned almost $1 billion at the global box office: The Bourne Legacy. The writer/director expands the Bourne universe created by Robert Ludlum with an original story that introduces us to a new hero (Jeremy Renner) whose life-or-death stakes have been triggered by the events of the first three films. For The Bourne Legacy, Renner joins fellow series newcomers Rachel Weisz, Edward Norton, Stacy Keach and Oscar Isaac, while franchise veterans Albert Finney, Joan Allen, David Strathairn and Scott Glenn reprise their roles.

    Expendables 2

    Source: http://trailers.apple.com/trailers/l...eexpendables2/

    Synopsis: The Expendables are back and this time it's personal... Barney Ross (Sylvester Stallone), Lee Christmas (Jason Statham), Yin Yang (Jet Li), Gunnar Jensen (Dolph Lundgren),Toll Road (Randy Couture) and Hale Caesar (Terry Crews) -- with newest members Billy the Kid (Liam Hemsworth) and Maggie (Yu Nan) aboard -- are reunited when Mr. Church (Bruce Willis) enlists the Expendables to take on a seemingly simple job. The task looks like an easy paycheck for Barney and his band of old-school mercenaries. But when things go wrong and one of their own is viciously killed, the Expendables are compelled to seek revenge in hostile territory where the odds are stacked against them. Hell-bent on payback, the crew cuts a swath of destruction through opposing forces, wreaking havoc and shutting down an unexpected threat in the nick of time - six pounds of weapons-grade plutonium; enough to change the balance of power in the world. But that's nothing compared to the justice they serve against the villainous adversary who savagely murdered their brother. That is done the Expendables way....

    Oz the Great and Powerful

    Source: Oz the Great and Powerful - Movie Trailers - iTunes

    Synopsis: Disney's fantastical adventure "Oz The Great and Powerful," directed by Sam Raimi, imagines the origins of L. Frank Baum's beloved character, the Wizard of Oz. When Oscar Diggs (James Franco), a small-time circus magician with dubious ethics, is hurled away from dusty Kansas to the vibrant Land of Oz, he thinks he's hit the jackpot--fame and fortune are his for the taking--that is until he meets three witches, Theodora (Mila Kunis), Evanora (Rachel Weisz) and Glinda (Michelle Williams), who are not convinced he is the great wizard everyone's been expecting. Reluctantly drawn into the epic problems facing the Land of Oz and its inhabitants, Oscar must find out who is good and who is evil before it is too late. Putting his magical arts to use through illusion, ingenuity--and even a bit of wizardry--Oscar transforms himself not only into the great and powerful Wizard of Oz but into a better man as well.

    i tried streaming resident evil retribution over wifi and it wont do it without buffering badly on 1080p and even worse on 720p (makes no sense) i was forced to watch them at 600p and it still buffered but not as bad.

    im using windstream and they give 3mbs im paying for 12mbs and have been for a long time when i brought it to their attencion they sent me a roku as a gift for the lack of service and overcharging which they then charged me for! lol my last call i was put on hold for over an hour at which point i got automatically disconnected theres only 1 other internet company in town and from what i heard they're worse.

    would i be better off with a cellular data plan or mifi thingy?

    I use a 10mbit DSL connection myself, and the trailers stream fine. They all start within a matter of seconds, and play through without any buffering (even the 1080's).

    Looking at windstreams website, it appears they are a cable company. With cable internet, you share your internet speed with the rest of the street. If there are some heavy downloaders, or if it is between 4pm-9pm, you are lucky you get 3Mbps. In my area I have 2 options, DSL through the phone company, or internet through the cable company. DSL is fixed. No matter what time of day it is, I will always get the bandwidth I pay for. Cable is a lot cheaper, but it is also a lot less reliable.

    Cellular 4G might be a better option, but you are likely tied to a dataplan, and that adds up quickly if you use it for your main internet connection.

    thanks Mitch i'll be looking into a 4g option.

    windstream came out to hook up the 12mb we've been paying for but the guy said the street doesnt have the proper box or whatever and said they dont know when we'll get our 12mb because the part thats needed is on backorder and has been for 6 months yet they've been charging us for it.

    ohh and the roku's free they got that straightened out and got 1 month free internet for paying for speeds we werent getting.

    Especially the scene of Stifler taking the chocolate candy before his mom could eat it and eat it himself, could watch that everyday.
