    Sorry if I posted this in the wrong forum, but:

    1. What is the best free video converter out there for the iPhone (You can suggest converters that cost money if they are really good).

    2. What is the highest setting in the video converter (a.k.a. maximum everything)

    Thanks In Advance!!!!!

    if you're copying DVD's use handbrake.

    I've converted some DVDs to iphone/ipod touch on the weekend.

    on my macbook takes about 1-1.5 hours each.

    +1 for handbrake and quicktime pro (with perian (for mac) installed) - can handle anything i throw at it quickly!

    you can put in whatever you want, so anything

    No, I mean the highest quality (video, sound, etc.) the converter can make with it still working on the iPhone.

    EDIT: Also, does handbrake take it straight from the disk, or do I need to use a DVD decoder?

    Actually, I've always used and liked PSP video 9. It is designed for the Sony PSP (obviously) but works great for the iPhone. Good quality and fairly quick conversion of .AVI. I've also converted .MKV files with it with no problems. Very simple to use too.

    Handbrake will take it straight from a DVD. It comes with numerous presets for targeted device that optimizes the video for that device, i.e. iPhone, :apple:TV, etc... Very easy to use. For my current touch, I always use the iPhone/iPod Touch setting and it looks beautiful.

    Sound is as good as anything else through headphones. For the :apple:TV, handbrake now supports 5.1 audio as well.

    Whenever I have long flights, I load the touch up and enjoy...no complaints

    Yep. Converts YouTube .flv files like a charm. I also use Handbrake for importing from DVD, a pretty good combination that's served me well since I switched.
