    Does anyone here use the standard TV-out composite video cable with their iphone (the yellow, red, white cable).

    When I try to play my videos on my TV, the video gets rather choppy when the scenes are moving quickly. This does not happen when watching the video on the iphone directly. It looks pretty bad when these scenes move quickly.

    If its a stationary scene with just two people talking, it seems to be OK.

    Do you think the iPhone has the graphics ability to stream video to an external source???

    Well, if it has video-out, I would assume so.

    (I am actually surprised it does!)

    Yes if it has a TV out I would expect this. So I am wondering if this is a known issue, or maybe a way I am encoding my videos from DVD to MP4.

    Interesting because I just plugged my cheap Nano in and my Nano's TV output looks better than the iphone. I dont see the choppiness at all.

    Isn't the iphone more powerful than the nano?
