Previously, I've ripped my movies at 640x480 and set the ABR at 2300; video size to ensure playback on my iPods/iPhone, and bit rate to ensure it doesn't exceed 2500kbps (the supposed limit for the iPod.) I'm experimenting with the Universal setting; it's the standard setup, but with detelecine and decomb on. I've got this so far. The Bourne Identity: 720x480 (640x480 anamorphic), 1767kbps Ironman: 720x368 (868x368 anamorphic), 1399kbps Both movies play in iTunes and on my iPhone just fine, and will transfer to my 6th gen iPod classic (160GB) and 3rd gen iPod nano, but won't won't play on either of them. When I select a movie, it goes to a black screen, and reverts to the Movie menu a few seconds later. What might be causing this? What can I do to make them work properly? I'd love to use the Universal setting; the quality is excellent and file sizes are small.
