    What setting are you guys using and normally how big are the files after conversion for like a two hour movie?

    I use iPod High Resolution settings; the iPhone settings gives me a bad quality when I zoom on my widescreen movies and I don't really mind ending up with a bigger file; I won't need to encode it again in an eventual future!

    In order, I click :

    1. iPod High-Rez preset
    2. MP4 file format
    3. AVC/H.264 codec format
    4. Framerate same as source
    5. x264 (h.264 iPod) encoding profile (why it choose the Main profile even though I selected iPod High-Rez is BEYOND me)
    6. 1500 kbps average bitrate (default with this preset)
    7. And I am keeping the 640 x 480 resolution (which chop the movie to a 640 x whatever height it needs)...

    Lots of thoughts there. Generally, H.264 gives equal-quality video at lower bitrates (and smaller file sizes) than Mpeg-4. Most of us think 600kbps looks great. Also, crop your videos to fit the 480 x 320 screen - otherwise, you're just wasting space.

    Ok here is a different type of question. I converted the movie and used the ipod touch settings. I put it in my itunes library. It wont sync it though. Is there something special I have to do?
