Bug Description

This bug was originally reported to Debian.-

The reporter said:

"I transcoded a video file using Arista and the Nokia 770 presets. The
resulting AVI video file cannot be played on the 770's included video player

The file can be played both in my computer's VLC and Nokia's MPlayer (though
both show a greenish, changing line at the bottom and the sound is quite

By the way, suggests that Nokia 770 videos would
better use 400x224, 320x240 or 400x240, instead of the 352x208 resolution in
Arista's presets."

Daniel, how's the progress here?
Does the latest 0.9.5 fix this issue?

Not fixed yet, but it can be pushed as a preset update so I didn't hold back the release for it. I'll try to look into it and see what encoding options will work better.
