Hi there! Having spent all morning playing with various methods of ripping and encoding video (DVD Decryptor, Videora, HandBrake mostly) I am having most luck and simplicity with ImTOO's DVD to Ipod Encoder. Having done much reading around concerning aspect ratios and converting videos for ipod, I'm having trouble deciding on settings for this. The source video is 720x576 (I'm led to believe thats 16:9 Anamorphic or 1.25:1), so what size should I be setting this too for laying on the ipod? I tried 480x384 (1.25:1) with aspect ratio set to 1.25, but this stretched the image into a square...Previous attempt with Handbrake using the Ipod Touch preset constantly stretched the file to ~650 horizontal. Does any one else have experiance with this particular aspect ratio? How do I encode without it stretching it badly? So far, I have been testing by encoding the files and then playing them with quicktime on my PC; I've not transferred them to the touch yet. Cheers for any help, H PS: I searched for other trheads on this and two came up but, while mentioning 720x576, they dont really discussing the encoding of it. Apologies if this duplicates though.
