    What are the best settings for converting DVDs or other videos to PS3 (using MPEG Streamclip) with as high a quality score as possible? :confused:

    Have you tried [url="http://www.handbrake.fr]"Handbrake[/url]?

    I think it might better serve your end goal.

    HandBrake does DVD to more or less anything. Just make sure it's in a file format the PS3 recognizes and you're good to go.

    I downloaded HB and it rips movies to the iPad rather well but there isn't a pre-set for the PS3! :-(

    Any ideas on what the proper settings are?

    This is what I found listed as PS3 compatible types

    Memory Stick Video Format
    - MPEG-4 SP (AAC LC)
    - H.264/MPEG-4 AVC High Profile (AAC LC)
    - MPEG-2 TS(H.264/MPEG-4 AVC, AAC LC)
    MP4 file format
    - H.264/MPEG-4 AVC High Profile (AAC LC)
    MPEG-1 (MPEG Audio Layer 2)
    MPEG-2 PS (MPEG2 Audio Layer 2, AAC LC, AC3(Dolby Digital), LPCM)
    MPEG-2 TS(MPEG2 Audio Layer 2, AC3(Dolby Digital), AAC LC)
    MPEG-2 TS(H.264/MPEG-4 AVC, AAC LC)
    AVI
    - Motion JPEG (Linear PCM)
    - Motion JPEG (μ-Law)
    AVCHD (.m2ts / .mts)
    DivX
    WMV
    - VC-1(WMA Standard V2)

    I would say use teh AppleTV or AppleTV2 preset, and see if that works. Just change the file extension in the name from .m4v to .mp4. This should work for you. I believe it uses h.264 and aac for this type of compression.
