You need to
before you can comment on or make changes to this bug.
iPod H264 16:9 (640 x 360) video do not playback on the N900 maemo Media
player. A similar iPod format H264 video at 4:3 aspect ratio (640 x 480) will
playback fine on the N900 maemo media player.
SOFTWARE VERSION: 2.2009.42-9
STEPS TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM:
1. Take attached folder containing two H264 video files in .mp4 format (please
contact email@example.com for such video files_ it appears your bug database
does not have attachments. Alternatively you can create iPod sized H264 file
using QuickTime to reproduce the problem)
2. Sync or drag to the phone --> video folder using mass storage device.
3. On the N900, navigate to Media player, Video section. Locate and try to
playback video called "XXXX 4:3". It plays back fine on the N900 without any
problems. Now attempt to playback the file called "XXXX_HD_16x9" on the N900.
Plays back H264 at the 16x9 size video. The file that fails to playback is
H264 video 640 x 360 resolution size, 16:9 aspect ratio. The first file that
successfully played back is a very similar file, H264, 640 x 480 resolution,
4:3 aspect ratio.
Playback fails. You get the message "Unsupported Video format".
Once you try to playback a file on the meamo player that fails, you need to
reboot the phone in order to get *any* video file to playback again. Writing
that up as a separate bug.

Hi & thanks for reporting!
You can create attachments here (see "Create a New Attachment" link), but only
up to 2500KB. So either feel free to attach a small example video here, or to
send it to my email address. :-)
if you could post up the file somewhere, i can help you
I am running 1.2009.41-10 and the file plays back fine in my N900's media
player. I checked with the debugging and it shows it only used the plugins that
come with the device not any extras I have downloaded myself.

Both videos also work for me running internal 45-14 on the N900.
Closing as WORKSFORME after two people could not reproduce it.
Kevin, if this still happens for you after receiving the first Software Update
for Maemo5, can you please reopen this? Thanks!
