    Just as the subject line says, does this mean Ill have to develop a new preset in Handbrake? :D Or, will it be capable of scaling down if I have some 720p or 1080p movies already ready to go?

    Looks like I got me some videos to convert yo!!

    Would be nice to have that option in the iPhone version of Airvideo, 640x480 is the max while the iPad version goes up to 1024x768.

    Hey Airvideo! Sometimes I want to set up an iPad conversion size using my iPhone :p

    According to the technical specifications, this will depend on what codec you are using to encode your video. It can handle H.264 up to 720p, other MPEG-4 codecs up to 640x480, and M-JPEG (a video capture codec used by some cameras) up to 1280x720.

    The details:

    Wow, thanks for doing the leg work! I shouldve checked there myself!

    This is good news to most Apple TV fans, isnt it. I think thats the same codec and resolution combo that APTV needs to run. Im hoping this means I can start converting to ONE video for all my devices!

    According to those specs, the iPhone 4 will actually play higher calibar video than the Apple TV currently does!

    This ceratinly leads credence to the theory that it will be updated soon.

    I really don't care about HD video on my iPhone, but I'm super excited that I'll be able to have 1 file in iTunes that I can just use everywhere. Right now I have to have 2 versions of my for the Apple TV and 1 for the iPhone. Really annoying. I'll be glad when I can ditch the old iPhone versions.
