    Try using one of the apple presets in handbrake. Universal or the one for iPod Touch & iPhone should work. You could also try and convert using quicktime player.

    What's the size of the movie? 640x480, etc?

    I would just use the iPhone preset or the AppleTV/iPad preset to ensure proper settings and try that first, then tweak if needed.
