Customize best settings for Kindle Fire

Kindle Fire plays MP4 and VP8 video only, so you’re suggested to choose “Common Video>> H.264 Video (*.mp4) format. The format exports 1080p .mp4 video with pretty good picture and compresses a 100min Blu-ray movie to 2-3GB. In that case the Kindle Fire holds only 3 or 4 movies only. To down-size output file, you can click “Settings” and set lower bitrate.



If you’d like to put 10 movies to Kindle Fire, set video bitrate down to 1000kpbs so that a 100min movie would be reduced to around 800M. Note that when you lower bitrate, you lower video quality meanwhile.
