Cruz's rom sucks. Its a diff arch and the webbrowser crashes with java script. Been waiting on an update for a while. Alternative roms do but do not exist. I do not see much interest in making this device do anything real besides what is stocked with it.

It has a MIPS processor.

If you can avoid this device I may.

What video conversion settings do you recommend?

The Cruz devices support MPEG4, H.263, and H.264 encoded video. But this does not mean all such video will play on the units. There are other considerations to take into account because this is a mobile device with limited system resources. The T103/4/5 and T301 tablets support MOV and AVI playback, while the Readers do not, primarily because of the differences in hardware.

We recommend that you use a video conversion software with presets optimized for viewing on Android devices like SnowFox (paid product): http://www.snowfoxsoft.com/android-video-converter.html

Another popular conversion software without presets is HandBrake (free product): http://handbrake.fr/

If you already have a conversion software that you are comfortable with, the settings below may allow you to optimize your converted video for playback on Android. You may however need to tweak your settings for best outcome. Consult your conversion software developer's website for support in optimizing settings for playback on Android.

   MP4 file format
   Video Codec: H.264
   Framerate: 15FPS or 24 FPS
   16:9 - 800x480
   4:3 - 800x600
   Zero Crop
   Audio Codec: AAC
   Stereo
   Samplerate (kHz): 44.1
   Bitrate (Kbps): 160
   Smaller file size is better


Alternate Roms
