1080p Video Testing for Nook Tablet (MP4)
I've uploaded a suite of 720p and 1080p MP4 clips to test for video playback performance. All are made from the same clip (the hunting scene from Avatar). These should be playable with the standard video player.
The clips progress from easiest to most demanding. The "min" clips use baseline profile, low bitrate, and minimum compression. The "avg" clips reflect typical scene rips, with medium compression settings and bitrate. The "max" clips mimics worst-case scene rips with max compression settings and level 5.1 setting. The last clip is the original BluRay clip.
- lightweight rip, baseline profile, L3.1, RF23, Ref1, veryfast preset, 7.7Mbs avg
- typical scene rip, high profile, L4.1, RF21, Ref4, medium preset, 8.5Mbs avg
- worst-case scene rip, high profile, L5.1, RF20, Ref16, veryslow preset, 9.1Mbs avg
- L4.0, 14.8Mbs avg
- L4.1, 16.9Mbs avg
- L5.1, 18.7Mbs avg
- master BluRay clip (2-part rar), high profile, 31Mbs avg, 45Mbs peak
The hunting scene is a very intense scene in Avatar and is a good stress test. Per the bitrate graph of the 1080p_max clip below, it has two peaks, 32.5Mb/s @ 0:44, and 29.1Mb/s @ 1:12 (these are when the shot beasts take a tumble into the mud). If frame-drops happen, they would be at these two spots.
Please try any clip you wish to test, and give feedback on whether playback is smooth with no frame-drops, particularly at around the two "mud splashes."
