    From which formate to what formate you want to have about your video clip. Will you please specify. Because android support MP$, WAV and many other extension. Better you just go to search engine and find out best converter. Thanks

    It captures from HD camera via some conversion streaming software into m.264 format.

    Because android support MP$, WAV and many other extension.

    Is M.264 the best format for most platforms (PC, MAC, Android) or can I convert to a format that is even more compatible. I have Xilisoft Pro conversion software. Not sure if it's possible to do this but I'm trying to get away with converting to just one format that will suit most platforms instead of converting to lots of different formats to suit all platforms. Hope this makes sense.

    Thanks again

    Thumbs up

    Your information is very helpful. I was hoping I could get away with converting my videos to just H264 format but it appears I will have to allow for additional conversions to cover android, PC and ipod/ipad.

    Perhaps one day someone will come up with a 'one size fits all' solution but until then it's extra work for us content providers.......

    Thankyou
