Hello, I am new to the forums! I got my first mac just under a year ago and a brand new iPod nano! Yet, I am in need of help. I have a whole bunch of .avi files that I want to be able to play in iTues and in my nano as well. I came across iSquint which seemed to work great. The videos look great on my iPod...but leave something to be desired on my iMac. When I watched the .avi files in full screen (ie-through Front Row) they looked pretty good. Not HD stuff mind you but pretty good. However, when I watched the converted files in Front Row...they are a lot more fuzzy. For example, in animation, the black lines stand out much less. Now, when I converted them, I used Highest Quality with the iPod setting...maybe they would look better if I used the TV setting? I really don't want to have two files on my computer, one for iPod and one for iMac. I want a file that I can watch with good quality on both. So, what I want to know is "What is the solution for a MPEG4 conversion?" Thanks everyone. I apologize if this isn't the right forum for this...but it seemed the best that I could see.
