    Ok. So I have a few movies that are in .avi format and are in widescreen format. My question is when I export from quickime what settings should I use. I usually use mpeg-4 and click 320-240 and when I do export it doesn't leave the black bars (which I want) but it like fattens up the movie so the people in the movie are really like tall and the width seems unproportional to the length. What are some options that I could use, either a different program or setting. I would really appreciate the help. Thanks.

    are you using quicktime pro? if so, the Export menu should give you the results you want - choose the export "movie to ipod (320x240) and you should get distortion-free video for your ipod...

    Yeah I am using quicktime pro but I think when you export to ipod it is a lot slower so I was seeing if there were other ways around it. But if I have to I guess I will to export to ipod.

    I've been using iSquint. Do a search for it on versiontracker. It has a few simple options to choose from, and you don't have to worry about all settings.
