The quality is not dependent on the codec/container. You can make MPEG1/2 videos look as good as MPEG4 (the video codec that's inside an AVI container usually), but they would have a bigger file size. MPEG4 decoding uses more processing power than MPEG1/2, so it drains the battery faster and might not work on weak processors. There's pros and cons to both codecs....

Using the same FPS as the source video is recommended. You make the video visually better by choosing a higher bitrate (as high as the player is able to handle).

could you use a video enhancer for it? because my videos aren't jerky it's that it looks kind of grainy.

The bit rate is low if your video isn't looking good. But If you turn up the bit rate then the videos will skip frames.(will skip -- while large amounts of colors are used in the video or if things are happening very fast)

The e200v1 just isn't a good video player... you gotta live with that.

agreed, I gave up on getting my videos to work perfect. They were either to choppy or the audio didn't sync.

I will agree with that. The e200v1s is not good at videos. I only use it for small videos that is not very important.

I use these settings with WinFF:
for 4:3 video i use 24fps (the rockbox wiki says you can use 27fps, but videos appear choppy)
for 16:9 i use 29fps and the videos look OK.

I'd say that the e200 is good for watching short clips, or some 15min show. Watching a movie on it probably isn't fun nor healthy for the eyes.

with all due respect I have to disagree with some of you guys regarding playing video on the Sansa..??. I've been using WinFF now with the Sansa custom config files mostly to convert .avi files to .mpeg, and I've put EVERYTHING on it...tv shows, movies..etc, and the output has been quite good!. Obviously not HD quality, but very watchable. I have watched entire tv episodes and movies with no problems. I certainly wouldn't recommend it every day, but it can be a great time waster...ie: doctor's office or airports! :-)

My 2 cents...
