    I have a 720p movie. I put it into handbrake. Set the width to 960 and with the aspect ratio it says to keep it at 512, which is obviously a good amount less than 640. Will this amount be huge black bars on top and bottom? Or just the average sized ones?

    Is there a way around this to get 640 without stretching? Obviously I don't want to do that.

    Sounds like you are trying to bend physics to your will. No, there is no way to do this without stretching/zooming. iPhone 4's resolution is NOT a 16:9 aspect ratio.

    I don't think so since the iPhone doesn't have a widescreen screen.

    720p (16:9 ratio) has a smaller relative height than the 960 * 640 (3:2 display ratio) resolution the retina screen displays.

    so, you'll end up with black bars OR, if you double tap the video, it'll zoom to fit the height, you'll lose the black bars but also cut off the sides of the image.

    no stretching involved really.

    just convert to 960 width

    Not true. Strictly: "...there is no way to do this without stretching/zooming/cropping/letterboxing or pillarboxing." (But I guess you knew/meant that!)

    alright thanks. I'll go with 960x512 and see how it turns out.
