Samsung Galaxy Tab Sample Videos, Specifications, Original Download

Posted on 19 October 2010, Last updated on 19 October 2010 by

I messed up! Many Tab owners will end up doing the same too because of the position of the built-in mic. When taking videos in a classic ‘mirrored looser’ hand shape you need to be careful. Here’s the effect in my first video uploaded direct from the Galaxy Tab.

Note the muffled video then watch this one. Much better! The quality is actually quite good. It’s H.264 at 720×480 with a 64kbps AAC soundtrack for a total 4.2mbps bitrate. That’s why you don’t see any ripping or wobbly effects. The original file is even better. Bear in mind this one was taken in difficult conditions. I could make a much better video in sunlight! The LED lamp helps though. File analysis from KMPlayer included below.

The question remains though – why not 720p? Continuous auto-focus would have been nice too.

File details. (Download original here) Can someone explain why this is marked as NTSC? I thought that was for analogue format, not digital.

    It says it’s NTSC probably because it’s 480p. Some video software let’s you choose resolutions based upon analog compatibility. For example if you make a DVD for NTSC TVs.

    Looks pretty good. Although I have to admit my expectations are always very low when it comes to video capture on these kinds of devices!

    This is my first time to get so high tech – Samsung Galaxy Tab which is reallly perfect tab but I also have the same problem with you.
    Galaxy supported video formats: MPEG4, H.263, H.264, DivX, XviD, WMV, AVI, 3GP. The way I resolve this problem is decoding my video to formats that my phone supports.

    Via google, I find Aunsoft Video Converter which is powerful in converting various video formts to Samsung Galaxy Tab video format listed above .
    I believe It will help you out.
