I am encoding a DVD for my friend's iPod. I noticed in Handbreak there's a preset for iPod High Rez and iPhone. The only variance that I can see is that the picture setting for the iPhone preset is 496x368 whereas the picture setting for iPod High Rez preset is 640x480. And the average bitrate using the iPod High Rez preset is 1500 and the iPhone preset average bitrate is 960. I did encode the DVD for iPod and put it on my iPhone and it played fine but would there be a quality difference (better) if I used the iphone preset instead if I wanted the DVD on my iPhone? I hope that's not all that confusing. And yes if it works then who cares, but I was just curious. Edit: The difference in file size between the iPhone and iPod format (at least for this DVD) was 84 mb in favor of the iPhone.
