    I read many a thread here and cant find the optimal settings. Many of us use this software. can u please post ur settings.

    I tried "ipod" 29 fps, up the volume to 200, 640 by 480 and did not do well. widescreen movie had subtitles cut off. ALso how do you get rid of subtitles and only leave ones that would come on their own?

    thanks for posting anything. cheers.

    Do a search for handbrake on here, its a much better program. You want your width to be 800, and scale the height accordingly. if you are ripping from a dvd, you will have to hardcode the subs. Also, if you are ripping from a dvd the max resolution you can get is 720. you will have to rip blu-rays to get the higher resolution.

    Handbrake works great for regular dvd's but DVD Fab will rip blue rays. :D

    To the OP, what I ended up doing with DVDFab was rip the movie from the Blue Ray and then use Handbrake to format the TS stream to the correct format. This does double the time it takes to Rip the disk but it works great. I have like 6 movies all from BRDVD's. Quality is awesome. Find the thread that guy above me mentioned and the first post has a video that will tell you the correct settings.

    I used RedsGT settings (in link above about Handbrake settings) except for setting a bitrate of 5500 and it worked great. I was struggling to get video in 720P to play on the EVO with DVDfab also. With these particular settings video is recorded in 720P and output over HDMI is spectacular looking. Carefull of the 2 gig cap on file size. I am having to break up movies into 2 to 3 parts when encoding on 720P.

    I had to do like the previous guy and use DVDfab to rip the bluray to a MKV file and than used handbrake to convert to a MP4 with the above settings.

    DVDfab when ripping bluray directly does not seem to use right MP4 version and will not play on the EVO. However, it will rip a plain DVD when using the ipod settings. It looks good on the EVO but not so good through HDMI. Easy one step method for making a quick copy for trips.

    Would be nice for all of us to email DVDfab to make an EVO output for bluray to make it one step also.
