    I have a bunch of videos that I'm trying to compress as much as possible. I'm not concerned about quality (around YouTube quality is more than enough), just the amount of space they take up. I've been using HandBrake on Linux to convert the videos.

    They play back fine on my computer, but when I load them on my Hero I just get a static green picture with no audio.

    Here are the settings I've been using. Any idea why it's not playing back? Also, any comments on decreasing file-size even more without compromising any more quality?
