I got my meizu last friday. At first, I was little confused with videos. I had pre-encoded some lotr movies. And they jammed m6, I reset the device. When it was on again, everything was in chinese! Then I paniced a bit and I used manual to find language controls and chanced it into english.
Then I got my videos playing after few adjustments, m6 haven't jammed ever since and the language stays in english this way.
I had to do quite a work to get videos running properly, www.meizume.com
forums give very useful information how to make movies work. Check the forums through before asking there.
But after this mess was over, I finally got to experience the sound quality of which many people seemed to be very happy. With shure e4 the sound is clear and without interferences, hiss is not a problem with my m6. I used 192kb/s vbr encoded with lame. I might try 320kb/s cbr soon.
Pictures will play fine if resized to 320x240. I haven't tried larger ones yet.
Video playback is nice addition, thought it could be more fluent. I encoded first with winmenc and then virtualdub. Larger movies don't always play if encoded only trough winmenc, and if played, they won't do well. Picture and sound quality are fine enought ( I used 384kb/s for picture, 192kbs for audio), but 20fps is only decent. 25fps would have been a killer
, oh well, can't have everything at this price.
After all, I'm very satisfied with my TP version of m6. It takes some time to get used to controls, but then they are fast and versatile.
