    hi,

    i'm looking for help with the best settings in quicktime to convert avi video files to a format that will create one file that will work on an ipod and in itunes. getting decent quality in itunes is the problem.
    the files take a while to convert so i'd like some advice to save time.

    cheers.

    The best settings would be had by not using Quicktime.

    Use HandBrake or iSquint.

    thanks.

    but handbrake doesn't accept avi as a source.
