Drag And Drop Video Convertor! Very Useful And Easy!
After helping my brother put videos onto his BlackBerry Pearl, I came across a Batch file that takes ANY type of video and converts it to the proper format for the BlackBerry to play on the WMP that comes with it.
I didn't want to hunt for a way to convert the videos to the proper format for the dash so I tried the batch file for hte BlackBerry Pearl and it WORKED! All you need to do is drag the video to the batch file and drop it and it will work on its own!
The only thing is that you need TCPMP to play the videos and it looks PERFECT!
Download TCPMP here: DashSmartZone - TCPMP Download
Another thing you need to work with the Batch file is a program called SUPER
. You don't even need to EVER open this program up for it to work with the batch file.
Another great tool is this video grabber. It allows you to download any video you find on most video sites onto your desktop!

After you have downloaded the TCPMP and installed it into the Dash and downloaded SUPER onto your computer, Follow the following steps to create the Batch File:
1. Create a new text file on the desktop, and paste the below code to it.
2. You will need to adjust the paths below. The first one is the path to SUPER mencoder.exe(IF YOU INSTALLED SUPER INTO C:/Program Files/ THAN SKIP THIS STEP).
3. The second adjustment to the code below is the path to where you want the converted videos to go into.
4. Save this as Convert Video.bat or whatever you desire.
After the batch file is created just drag and drop the video you want to convert and thats it!
The script will take a file "my_video.mpeg" and re-encode it for the Dash moving it to the assigned folder and naming it "my_video.avi
