Default Handbrake H264 encoding does work for J3

I've read many posts saying that Handbrake created h264 videos won't work on the J3. However, I just created some using the 'ipod legacy' profile (Handbrake v0.9.5), h264 in an mp4 container with AAC audio, and it works just fine (J3 w/ firmware 2.26). I tried both ripping right from DVD (via DVD Decrypter) and transcoding existing .avi files, and no problems with either.

The only changes I made to the 'ipod legacy' profile were to drop resolution to 480x272, drop bitrate to 768 (though I'm going to try 640 or maybe 512 next, as 768 is a bit too large for such low resolution), save as mp4 (not m4v), unclick 'ipod 5g support', and only used one audio track downmixed to stereo AAC 160kbps. Super easy.

I hope this helps

Hey, thanks. Trying this now, Handbrake is my encoder of choice for everything else already.

This is awesome news, good job! Please can you post a screenshot of the 'Advanced' tab to show the h.264 settings and command line?

Maybe this is something that only works on the J3 and not the S9, as I cannot get this to work. I read somewhere that Handbrake does not support h.264 baseline at all, so shouldn't work on these players. However, I think on some older versions it was supported. Which handbrake version are you using?
