    I export the video via Quicktime to iPod format but it always squeezes the picture and I can't change the aspect ratio when I export. Is there anyway to fix this or any other format I can export it to?

    the iPhone is not in the same aspect ratio as the iPod. The current iPod is 4:3, the iPhone I believe is 16:9. You need a video in widescreen format to work properly.

    I have the video in widescreen format already and it is a quicktime video file. Don't I have to export it to m4v to play it on my iphone? It wont let me change the aspect ratio when I export to m4v via quicktime.

    the iPhone is 3:2, not 16:9. The ratio falls right on between full and widescreen.

    I have been using handbrake to import my dvd's to put on my iPhone. I import them at on the iPod setting takes about 2 hours per feature but looks incredible on the iPhone

    I've done that as well, but I'm working with footage that isn't on DVD. Just widescreen quicktime files I have on my Mac.
