7. Distribute > Play Your Video on a Pocket PC

Play Your Video on a Pocket PC

If you own a Pocket PC computer, whether it’s a cell phone or an organizer, you can carry and play your videos anywhere.

The Pocket PC platform can be found in personal digital assistants (PDAs), cell phones, and palmtop computers. It’s a versatile system that is capable of working with Microsoft Excel and Word documents, dealing with email, and browsing the Web. It can also play a movie, if it’s encoded properly. The easiest way to encode for a Pocket PC is to use Windows Movie Maker.

Capturing Your Footage

There are two methods of creating a movie that can play on a Pocket PC, and which method you use will depend on what stage in the editing process you decide to create such a movie. If you are just starting your project and know that you will only be delivering your project to a Pocket PC device, you can select one of the Pocket PC profiles when you start capturing your footage. Figure 7-51 shows the Capture dialog box for Windows Movie Maker with the Pocket PC profile selected.
