powerbook optimized video

    I've got a lot of video I want to be able to play back on my powerbook. It's not technically HD (which I wouldn't expect the ol' pb to be able to handle) but it's high enough quality or encoded weird so that the PB just barely can't handle it. I'd like to figure out some kind of standard settings to convert my video to so that it will play on the powerbook. Does anyone know of some powerbook g4 12" optimized settings? Or even better, have a compressor droplet for optimized settings?

    Depends on your CPU speed. On most reasonably powerful G4's standard def avi's or MP4's should be fine, they run perfectly on my 1.33Ghz G4.

    avi's even run fine on my iMac g3
