    Just curious what MacRumors use.

    Is there a difference? Right now my Library is all encoded using iPod High-Rez, is it worth re-encoding it using AppleTV?

    I use iPad setting at 720p. Google "handbrake settings, Lifehackers".

    I encode to AppleTV preset and just use that as I already have most of my movies in that format. I just copy them over to iPad. Not worth my time to reencode since space is not an issue for me as I rarely carry more than 2-3 movies at a time.

    If you can afford the time to re-encode, I'd use Apple TV or Apple Universal (these two are basically identical except that Universal preserves compatibility with pre-3GS iPhones and older iPods at the expense of slightly larger file sizes for the same quality). Which you choose depends on whether you need compatibility with those older devices or not.

    Another vote for the Lifehacker presets - they work like a charm :)

    I use Universal. Seems to do a pretty good job.

    If you're encoding to iPad then there's no need to resize the video, which is what iPod High-Rez and the other setting will do (make them smaller). For best video results keep the output the same size as the original (ALL DVD's will be playable at full rez on the iPad after encoding).

    For an easy way to do it, which is what I do: Select your DVD track, select "Regular - Normal" under the settings tray and then under Picture Settings turn on Deinterlace in the filters menu. This will give you a quick one-pass encoding at full rez w/o the (aliasing) horizontal lines in the video. Your 2 hour video should be around ~1.2GB.

    Cheers.

    Pretty sure I have this as well, it gave me standard def, 720 and images or something...

    Dunno, would have to check.
