    I need to convert a bunch of videos into a format which can be used on iPhone.
    I am currently using Roadmovie, but think it is way too slow. Is there a faster alternative out there? :)

    I just use iSquint. I doubt it is any faster, unless RoadMovie is slowed by the subtitle and chapter support even when they aren't being used. Or if it doesn't run at full speed until you pay the shareware fee. Could it just be that your machine is running flat out and you are getting the best possible conversion times already?

    Isn't that unlikely, since my macbook pro is running @ 2.4 ghz with 2gb ddr3 ram?

    Use Handbrake and choose the iPhone preset.

    If you want fast transcodes (and large files), convert with MPEG-4 encoding.

    If you want small files (and slow transcodes), convert with h.264 encoding.

    Those are pretty much your choices.

    i use isquint. It is very quick and reliable but it isn't being supported by the developer anymore. You should still be able to download it somewhere

    Use Any Video Converter. Windows and Mac version availble.

    It is easy to use...

    And fast, do batch conversion.

    And I love the YouTube download function.

    Sounds almost as good as Handbrake. Well, other than the $30 cost for it. :rolleyes:
