It has been a while since I last posted up some streaming sample trailers, so I figured it was time to do it again. The original trailers come from the Movie Trailer section on Apple's website, located here: http://trailers.apple.com/trailers/ For the source video, I used the 1080p versions of the trailers, and converted them with DVD Catalyst 4 (4.2.1) to MP4 format using different resolutions. DVD Catalyst 4 is one of the most popular conversion applications for phones and tablets due to how easy it works (1 click conversions), the support provided to you when you need it (quick, hand-typed and detailed) and the very affordable pricing (on sale for $9.95, less than the price of 2 DVDs in the sales-bin at the grocery store). You can purchase DVD Catalyst 4 (Windows-only, sorry but no OS X version available at this time) by clicking here (link), or download the free trial version by clicking here (link). Note: the trial version converts 25% of each item. For more information about DVD Catalyst 4, visit the main website on www.tools4movies.com. For the settings, I started out with the Asus > TF700t 1080 HQXT profile, and (with "Power User" mode enabled), I changed the CRF setting in "Modify" to 20 to ensure the best possible quality video. Aside from that, I enabled "Streaming" in Global Settings > Tweaks. Because I have had a few people use the sample trailers for other purposes, and claim that they were converted by themselves and with different software, I found myself forced to enable the "Mark Video" option, which places a small text overlay in the video. Note: If you visit this page on your tablet/phone, tapping the video links will result in them playing while downloading. Please understand that these trailers are very high quality, and as a result, streaming them over a limited internet connection (3G/4G) will likely result in buffering issues, and of course, unless you have unlimited data, it will drain your available data plan as well. For best results, use WiFi to stream them. As mentioned earlier, I used these settings as a base for the conversions: For the 1080p versions, those were the exact settings used. For the other versions, all I did was change the resolution. The 1080p versions (1920x1080) play fine on Tegra2 and Tegra3 based devices (such as the Acer A100/200/500/700, Asus TF101,TF201,TF300, TF700t, Nexus 7, Xoom etc), as well as the iPad3 and Blackberry Playbook. The 720p versions (1280x720) play fine on all of the above mentioned devices, as well as the Galaxy Nexus, Galaxy S3, iPad 1 and 2, iPhone 4, iPod Touch 4. The 600p versions (1024x600) play fine on the above as well as the Kindle Fire and NOOK tablet. the 480p versions (800x480) play fine on all of the above, as well as the PS Vita and older Android phones and budget Android tablets. Here are the trailers: Bourne Legacy Source link: http://trailers.apple.com/trailers/universal/thebournelegacy/ Synopsis: The narrative architect behind the Bourne film series, Tony Gilroy, takes the helm in the next chapter of the hugely popular espionage franchise that has earned almost $1 billion at the global box office: The Bourne Legacy. The writer/director expands the Bourne universe created by Robert Ludlum with an original story that introduces us to a new hero (Jeremy Renner) whose life-or-death stakes have been triggered by the events of the first three films. For The Bourne Legacy, Renner joins fellow series newcomers Rachel Weisz, Edward Norton, Stacy Keach and Oscar Isaac, while franchise veterans Albert Finney, Joan Allen, David Strathairn and Scott Glenn reprise their roles. 1080p: http://www.tools4movies.com/trailers/0712/bournelegacy-tlr_h1080p.mp4 720p: http://www.tools4movies.com/trailers/0712/bournelegacy-tlr_h720p.mp4 600p: http://www.tools4movies.com/trailers/0712/bournelegacy-tlr_h600p.mp4 480p: http://www.tools4movies.com/trailers/0712/bournelegacy-tlr_h480p.mp4 Expendables 2 Source: http://trailers.apple.com/trailers/lions_gate/theexpendables2/ Synopsis: The Expendables are back and this time it's personal... Barney Ross (Sylvester Stallone), Lee Christmas (Jason Statham), Yin Yang (Jet Li), Gunnar Jensen (Dolph Lundgren),Toll Road (Randy Couture) and Hale Caesar (Terry Crews) -- with newest members Billy the Kid (Liam Hemsworth) and Maggie (Yu Nan) aboard -- are reunited when Mr. Church (Bruce Willis) enlists the Expendables to take on a seemingly simple job. The task looks like an easy paycheck for Barney and his band of old-school mercenaries. But when things go wrong and one of their own is viciously killed, the Expendables are compelled to seek revenge in hostile territory where the odds are stacked against them. Hell-bent on payback, the crew cuts a swath of destruction through opposing forces, wreaking havoc and shutting down an unexpected threat in the nick of time - six pounds of weapons-grade plutonium; enough to change the balance of power in the world. But that's nothing compared to the justice they serve against the villainous adversary who savagely murdered their brother. That is done the Expendables way....
