Did you convert them in 640X480 or 480X320?

480X320, i followed everything too a T....i don't have an ipod or a mac, so im assuming the writer knows what he/she is talking about. i would assume the iPhone will make it fit the screen.

Ok because if you read the small print on the tech specs on the Apple site it says "Up to 5 hours of battery life is based on H.264 1.5-Mbps video at 640-by-480 resolution combined with 128-Kbps audio."

Thanks for the heads up on the converter. I haven't used one yet, but this likes like a good time to start.

ffmpeg is available in various forms... I think there's a gui version for Windows but on Mac there's ffmpegx.

i downloaded the software, i made the setting just as the article said and i popped a dvd in....

the resulting videos are crappy (choppy, bad audio)

anyone have any advice? I'd love to rip a couple dvd's to my iTunes.
