I am using ialive conversion specifically for the iPhone. I converted some AVI files to h.264 and in iTunes the videos look PERFECT. I sync with iPhone....and a quarter of the screen is massively corrupted with a green flickering that makes the movie unwatchable. i would think it was a conversion issue but it looks perfect when watching from iTunes. What do I do? please help!

what resolution and fps is it set to? sounds like its trying to run at a higher level then it can handle. Try going to mp4 format instead of the h. and see if that works

its outputting mpeg4 at 480 by 320 "high quality" with the FPS 'same as source file.'- i will try maybe lowering the settings a bit and change fps to 23.94

What software? High quality is probably too high a bit rate. These are the supported video formats etc. HTH

My Encoding Settings

Playing with converting DVDs last night and FINALLY I found a setting I was happy with: .mp4 with H.264 codec 640x480 29.97fps 1000kb bitrate. Files are around 300MB per hour of video. Yes the files are big, but the image quality and smmoth playback are worth it especially if you're showing off the iPhone!
