Question about the new iPod Nano...


You all know the device I'm talking about.

How do I put videos from a DVD onto the video?

Thanks!

Yup. I have that exact model and for the last several days, I've been putting my Firefly DVDs on it. ^_^

So what settings are you guys or gals using in Handbrake?

Plus, if you rip a DVD to watch on a Nano and then plug your Nano into a TV (via the $49 cables) what kind of picture will you get? Will it Nano small or will it fill the screen?

I use the following settings in Handbrake: MP4 File, MPEG-4 Video /AAC Audio with the FFmpeg encoder. Bitrate of 1500 and a overall size of 640x480 (for widescreen movies the height will reduce). I use FFmpeg because it rips DVDs far quicker than the other one (I get 95 fps with ffmpeg).
If you rip with these settings, the video quality is somewhere between VHS and DVD when you play it through the TV and the picture will fill the screen

use the default ipod lowrez. highrez is far too big a file; lowrez will get you about a 600mb dvd, if im not mistaken. and the quality is just fine.
