    In the past if I had a QT video on my desktop and wanted to put it into iTunes, I had to use iSquint to convert it and then move it over to iTunes. Problem with that is, quality is lost in the conversion.

    Does anyone know if QTX can replace iSquint and convert all those QT files for me for iTunes and iPhone usage? And if so, does it retain the quality of the file, unlike iSquint?

    Yes, under the share menu. Quality will always take a hit if you are converting for an iPhone.

    Any time you’re converting, quality will go down. Resolution will likely go down too if you’re converting for iTunes, depending on the source file. It all depends on how it’s being converted. I’d imagine QuickTime does it pretty efficiently. Personally I haven’t used iSquint at all since Handbrake started accepting video files as sources, I get great quality using the presets.
