Use higher resolution MPEG4s on the iPod Video
Authored by: joykafka on Jan 21, '06 06:52:05PM

Just found a wierd solution for my own question above, which bothered me for days.

I was driven crazy at the end so that I started to try to convert dvd files to all different file types. Finally I found if the output file is "quicktime movie in the format of mp4" (using the program Total Video Converter), it can be played nicely on iPod with high resolution (576*384 for example). The format of ipod mp4, ipod mov mp4, or other .mp4 formats are not accepted by iPod tho. I don't know what are the settings behind these "definition" by Total Video Converter!

one of the successful settings: 576*483 (3:2) 24 fps,
resulted bitrate:1120 kbit
movie time: 1h05m, .
mov file volume: 548mb.
conversion time: about 50 mins or more

hope there will some nice software for Windows equivelant to handbrake and the others in Mac.
