    Try Handbrake. Use iPhone settings as a start.

    Hnadbrake, the current version, only encodes to MP4 and MKV.

    I think Super is pretty good, though I've never used it for converting stuff to a phone format. It's really extensive.

    SUPER &copy

    I second the Super for more advanced conversions. Works great. You will have to go through some trial and error to get the best format for your tastes

    Hello,

    What settings do you guys use? I first used tunebite. Converted Pelham 123 digital copy from .wmv to .mp4. In tunebite, audio is converted to mp3, original bitrate. Video is converted to .mp4 1024 bitrate. Frame rate same as original. Resolution same as original. 720x384. Worked perfectly. Good color. Audio matched. File was less than 900 megs.

    However, after that time, Tunebite's audio wasn't in sync with the video. (lip syncing) As much as 2-3 seconds behind. I tried several settings without resolution. Tunebites support isn't the best either.

    I then bought another program - Daniusoft Media Converter Ultimate. It converts good. I converted Pelham123 again from the original digital copy. However the color and picture were not as crisp as tunebites. The settings on those were:

    Resolution 720x384
    Frame Rate Same as Original
    Bit Rate 1500 (and I tried 512)
    h.264 Encoder .mp4 file

    I tried Handbrake but the program keeps shutting down after 2%.

    Basically, whats the best settings (regardless of software) for the best quality video for the Evo? Thanks in advance.

    Chris

    Handbrake keeps hanging my PC when it reads. It never is able to fully read, unlike Xilisoft and others which have no problem.. Any ideas??

    Well I always used "Free Studio Manager", you can google it or download it at Download.com. I was playing with this today, trying to find the best setting, I found the best setting is 480x320 at 30fps or 29fps. It works perfectly it fills the screen totally, and it doesn't take to much space. Ofcourse you can go with 720x480, but the file is going to be too big, is it's going to look the same on the 4.3 screen. I did the 720 and 480, with the same movie, and they both looked equally good. Unless your planning on seeing the movies on a LCD using the hdmi port, I would say, Yes go with 720 instead. But if your just going to see it on your phone, go for 480 with 30fps, it'll look good and you'll have some more space, for more movies.

    I use Zune Video Converter for converting videos from/to just about any format. It's free & very easy to use.

    Another vote for DVDFab. I converted Avatar easily and with no issues. It looks great on the Evo's huge screen.

    Did you convert a Blu-ray version of Avatar or a standard DVD? Anyone had experience with the DVDFab "Blu-ray to Mobile" software?
