    I'm converting a load of my videos (bit of West Wing, Heroes and House) to iPhone format ahead of Friday's release using ImToo MP4 Video Converter 3.

    The default settings for iPhone give an output file for a roughly 40 minute episode as around 400MB. Is this about standard or are people using any other sampling applications, lower sample rates or other settings to get any significantly smaller file sizes?

    That is the preset I have created for use in HandBrake for ripping DVDs to iPhone/iPod Touch. It should provide you with some insight into a good ripping standard. To use it, just add the above xml to the .plist file in ~/Library/Application Support/HandBrake/
