    What settings do you have to put to maintain a movie's widescreen format? I converted a widescreen movie to 480x320 because I thought this was the iPod Touch's native resolution and I got a 4:3.

    Handbrake: DVD => iTunes compatible video files
    iSquint: non iTunes compatible video files => iTunes compatible video files

    I haven't done much of this stuff yet, but I think you just change the width to 480 and leave the height blank. This will leave the height dependent to the width instead of stretching the height to 320... I'm not sure though. Let me know if that works.

    Don't you just not touch the resolution at all?

    480x272 would be a 16:9 wide ratio

    Sadly, the iPod's 480x340 is NOT the widescreen that it is advertised to be

    Shouldn't there be a universal app...named like Squintbrake...that does it all?

    The iPod's screen is 3:2 (1.5:1). 480x320. Somewhere in between 16:9 (1.85:1) widescreen and 4:3 (1.33:1) fullscreen. So you either have horizontal/vertical bars or you lose material by zooming in.

    It is technically widescreen, just not as wide as is typical. If, on the iPod touch, the screen extended all the way to the top edge of the device, you'd be looking at closer to 16:9.
