What works...
Authored by: stuepfnick on Nov 12, '05 10:58:04AM


I would suggest everyone to use 3ivx as the Standard Quicktime MPEG4 Encoder. It works just as fine as the Apple encoder, but produces much better results at lower bitrates. Also a fine app to do everything you need is "MPEG Streamclip" There you can do everything, directly encode from demuxed or muxed MPEG1/2, any Quicktime Video, from unprotected DVDs, crop, de-interlace, etc., etc.

It does nearly everything and is FREE!!

Also I have one question:

Apple claims 480x480 as the resolution of choice for MPEG4. But I always get streched results, when playing it on the iPod. In Quicktime, I can enter and save the correct aspect ration (720x480), but iPod ignores that.

480x480 is the standard resolution of SVCDs. There also the 480 pixels width get stretched to 720 (1.5 times the size), while the height stays 1:1.

Please tell me, how to get that aspect ratio fine!

Thanks in advance!
