H264 for iPod may be larger than 320 pixels wide
Authored by: Gutta on Jan 20, '06 02:31:38AM

<blockquote>I used 450KBps, Qmin:3, Qmax:30, Keyframe:20, Audio:96kb, ME function: Multi-hexagon. I use "Decode with QuickTime" all the time simply because it works all the time. Other checkboxes are left as is. </blockquote>

I can <b>confirm</b> that the iPod video will play a movie at 416 x 176 pixels, but the aspect appears completely wrong to me, but that may be something to do with the source I'm feeding it (16:9 anamorphic) - I'll tweak the pixel count and see what I come up with. Also, isn't it a bot of a waste sampling the audio at 48kHz? 44.1 would be adequate.

Where did you find the Keyframe :20 parameter? I can't find where it is.

And lastly, I've been trying to drop the file directly onto my iPod in the iTunes interface as suggested, but it won't work for me. Firmware 1.1 and iTunes 6.0.2. ANy ideas?

Thanks for the tip, Gutta

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe you have to have Music set to manual or just Videos set to manual to drag and drop, otherwise the iPod will only sync what's in your library.
