    Was curious about something.

    Is there any video converters out there to convert your video/movie files into an iPhone 4 format?

    I was wondering since iPhone 4 with its new and better display could take advantage with better videos? Maybe any converters which convert to iPhone format with the iPhone 4 resolution.

    Or do you just use the same video converters?

    thanks in advance

    HandBrake at the default legacy AppleTV setup.

    Good news my friend. Handbrake works great and the folks at Lifehacker.com just posted iPhone 4 and iPad presets. There are settings for SD, iFrame, and 720p.

    The 3GS could handle AppleTV formatted video files. The iPhone4 can handle the iTunes HD format files if you so chose to.

    The quality greatly depends on the source material...

    Standard Definition. They explain what iFrame on the site. It's basically high def only for your phone. If you're going to use the videos on your tv then you would use 720p.

    iSquint, but use the tv setting instead of ipod setting, and choose the highest quality on the sliding scale bar. I just converted a 720p Blu-Ray of Veronika Decides to Die into a high quality mp4 and the results are effing exquisite!

    God it sounds like Preset City. Am I going to end up with 4 different file formats of Avatar, iPhone/ipad/MacBook/TV?
    Isn't there a one for all file format?

    iSquint uses outdated technology and outdated libraries. the quality vs file size will be pathetic. use handbrake for better results :)

    I know you just discovered handbrake and that it's "pleasant to play iPhone videos wherever and whenever." but you really don't need to revive multiple threads over three years old to tell everyone about it.
