How do you download movies into iPhone? Is there a specific format that works best and what are you using to convert movies for use on the iPhone?

You need to make sure SYNC is selected, then your video chosen then hit apply.

It depends on quality. Ive seen 300mb to 1gb a movie. 200 is watchable. It all depends on your preference.

If your a PC user I would recommend Videora; takes about an hour to convert an average movie. (Speeds will depend on hardware)

you can get it here.


Mac users: Handbrake

(my personal preferences of course, not necessarily the best :D )

BOTH FREE!

I choose space over quality. I compress the movies down to 300-400 mb maximum and they are still watchable. Right now I have 4 feature length movies and four seasons of Aqua Teen Hunger Force and I have another 4 gigs of music.

You can fit quite a lot onto an 8gig.

I haven't used the non-beta; I assume it would work just fine but may be missing some additional features.
