    Hi all,

    I've converted a movie from .avi to m4v (says MP4 in Handbrake) but the quality on my Desire was very pixelly (is that a word?) although on my computer it's a DVD copy.

    I'm trying a different way of converting it via Handbrake to see if I can up the quality but is there something I should be doing, any tips for getting good quality?

    Well, that didn't go well, no picture the second time, I'm not very good at this converting lark :(

    Settings I used converting from a DVD on PC to mp4. Under a 'new' Preset:

    Container: MP4
    Filename: <Your_Filename>.mp4

    My source video size was 720x576. I set this to 448x192. 800*480 is screen size, this worked for me though. It also worked with res 720 x 304 (Keep Aspect Ratio enabled). 720x436 also worked. I was having problems with some resolutions but eventually found these to work. I think it may have something to do with the source video size.

    Video Filter: Default
    Video: Video Codec: H.264 (Which I believe is default) - Avg Bit Rate 950. Rest Default.
    Audio: Deleted any listed entry
    Selected 'English AC3 5.1ch' as 'source'
    Selected 'AAC (faac) as 'audio codec
    Selected 'Stero' as 'mixdown'
    Sample Rate: 44.1
    Bit Rate: 128
    <Add Track>
    Subtitles - Chapters - Advanced: default

    It took a while to get a decent rip, the higher the resolution the crisper it will look though. I found Mixzing made some rips full screen regardless of the file resolution too. The above can probably be improved upon greatly but I settled at that. I think the video Avg Bitrate is one of the important points.
