    I have a few movies on my PC that I want to convert to scale perfectly for the iphone 5, do you guys recommend any programs to do that or does iTunes scale it for us now?

    Handbrake might be a good choice; not sure if they already adopted but just go to their page

    There isn't an iphone 5 preset yet, but HB are pretty good at getting these out quickly.

    OP: Go to the "Toggle Pre-sets" tab on the right of the Handbrake window. When new ones are availble you can update them by clicking "Update ~Presets" from there.

    Most Apple devices are there now, including the ATV3. The pre-sets do a pretty good job, but I prefer a more "hands on" approach so tend to set things up manually

    There is a great thread running with plenty of goo info here:

    Thread covers the ATV and most other devices too.

    Or just choose the iPhone 4 preset and change the resolution :) is pretty easy.

    With my test movie, I could just keep the "Anamorphic" on "Loose", and change the width to 1136.

    But you may need to play around with the "Anamorphic" dropdown. :)

    Get AVS Video Converter. It's an amazing converter that will convert everything you toss at it. It works incredibly well and has no stupid gimmicks that come alongside it.

    Convert the movie files to mp4 format, then drop into itunes to sync with your iPhone 5.

    Try Handbrake or AppGeeker, Great tool to have in your tool collection.

    Handbrake is a good choice, I have tried others and always come back to this one. It works great.
