Handbrake - iPhone 5 Format

Hi,

Iam not really sure if this is the right section but how do I use handbrake.fr
to make videos fit my iPhone 5.

The program wont allow me to make changes to the parameters.

I want to convert avi files to fit 640x1136


Thanks in advance.

What's in the AVI? Generally, they're standard definition MS-MPEG4 or xvid / divx stuff that you in no way want to upsize (AVI was the main format back in the SD days but no longer now, in the HD one). As software playback of SD videos doesn't tax the CPU much (as opposed to HD or Full HD), you may not want to convert it at all but use a player capable of supporting the video format inside; for example, GoodPlayer.


Please post a screenshot of MediaInfo showing the AVI info so that I can point you to the most efficient solution. (Again, all depends on the video format inside.)

Yup, 640*360 and (most probably) XviD. All depends on whether you want to use a third-party app to play it back. If you don't, just use HandBrake to reencode it into H.264 (the default parameters will do). If you do, get for example GoodPlayer, which plays these SD videos just fine and has a lot of features. The following version will also have iPhone 5 support.

It'll automatically upscale the video to full screen - actually, very few video player apps let for playing back the video at their original size (this is why I've written a full HD video player that doesn't use scaling and, therefore, offers the best visual quality possible).

Run it for the 720P AppleTV 2.

720p is close enough to iPhone 5 resolution and same aspect ratio
