    I'm going on a trip soon and wanted to put some movies on my phone. I found some DVD ripping software, ripped The Dark Knight as MPEG4, and was thrilled when I saw the picture- it looked fantastic.

    Then I put my headphones in.

    Where's my sound?

    Before this, I had the movie The Book of Eli on my computer, MPEG4. I put that on my phone- sound, but not video. Converted to H.263, got both, but video was terrible quality. Near unwatchable.

    So what have you guys been doing? Should I try converting to a different format? I mean, there has to be some way to get good quality video.

    What are you using for the conversion? I am trying to find the thread but someone had al the settings and everything for a good conversion using Handbrake. Use the iPhone or iPod settings. I am gonna look for that thread though... it is about 720p over HDMI

    Well I went to look for something when I remembered that RealPlayer has conversion software.

    You know RealPlayer? It's really nifty- allows you to rip Youtube videos, and then with the conversion software you can switch to a multitude of video formats or just audio- whatever.

    It also has some good customization options for custom conversion settings. But I'm just using the HTC Incredible setting- it says it's H.263 and since the two phones are pretty much the same...

    But that thread would be great. I looked at Handbrake before using RealPlayer.

    Oh, I wasn't sure if H.264 worked.

    And thanks for the links. I'll have a look.

    Second link won't work :( "Page not found"

    Well, I ended up looking at your first link and read through the comments, I'm using the program XMedia Recode, and it's wonderful. So simple, it works, and it delivers a fantastic picture.


    Only problem is, my CPU is about to ignite. I need better fans!
