    Hi guys,

    I wanted to get an opinion on what the most optimal video quality, size, and dimensions are for playback on the Samsung Galaxy S.

    I have some DVDs I want to rip onto it.

    I basically want the Avatar quality of video that was shipped with the T-Mobile versions :)

    Any feedback would be awesome.

    As far as the DVDs are non copy-protected or already ripped onto your HDD, I'd strongly advise you to use Handbrake, the only thing to play with would be the video tab (once you have chosen the source file), you might want to choose the file size at 3900 MB (that's what I do, for a quality as insane as possible on our amazing SGS phone), choose the video format as MKV and the container as H264. Choose the audio track under the audio tab settings. Have the aspect ratio as 1280 X 720. The output is amazing but as we put in the file size to be about 4 GB, you may have to sacrifice this space for the quality of the picture. Let me know if you'd need more on this. Happy watching

    Awesome, I will try those aspects. I actually tried downloading a mkv file from my mac but it wouldn't let me. I think it has something to do with how I formatted my SD card and thee size of the file, which was over 4 GB. Any thoughts?

    Yes, the FAT structure employed in the SD card limits the maximum file size to 4 GB (just like PS3), you'd be better off keeping within that 4 GB limit or the file would not even get copied over to the card, let alone....see it play.
