H264 for iPod may be larger than 320 pixels wide
Authored by: lstewart on Jan 19, '06 09:51:24AM

Obviously video at this size will have to be scaled to play back on the iPod itself. And while the iPod is capable of this video scaling, some people have reported smoother playback of scaled videos when the resolution is evenly divisible by 16. While the original poster's 2.35:1 aspect ratio suggestion of 416x176 fits this suggestion, the formula suggested here does not.

My question is: I think I read about the divisible-by-16 rule as it was being applied to MPEG4 video. Can anyone confirm whether it applies to H.264 as well? Will odd-pixel-sized H.264 scale smoothly for playback on the iPod? (Or are there flashing/flickering/choppy artifacts during playback?)
