    can someone recommend one? Im usually just converting from an .avi file. I was told the iphone video dimentions are something like 480 x 320? I tried Handbrake but no luck. Every time I open a file it says 'No Valid Title Found'. Some also told me about Visualhub but I dont see anywhere on it's site that it converts to Iphone size........so what do you guys recommend? thanks

    Visualhub does convert to iphone specific size. Works fantastic! I use it all the time.

    Visualhub by far is the best converter app I have ever used. I can throw anything at it and it will convert it exactly how I want it. I know ffmpeg is the brains behind it but they did a good job with the gui. Anyone know a good ffmpeg based converter for Windows when I am not on my Mac?

    I don't have an iPhone yet, but this was one of my biggest questions/concerns. So after you convert a file using one those programs, how do you transfer it to the iPhone? Through iTunes? Bluetooth?

    Also, the above program can get an .avi file that you've downloaded onto the iPhone, what if you have a DVD and want to get it on the phone, is that possible?

    As far as putting it on the iPhone once its converted its as easy as dragonf and dropping the newly converted file ( you can delete the original) into iTunes and syncing it over.

    To get a DVD on the iPhone you will need some ripping software I use Nero. Once its ripped just convert drop into iTunes and sync.
