    I tried to do a search but dvd and avi are lower then 4 letter words so it won't let me. I'm getting the touch in the mail soon and my roommate is moving out this weekend and I'm turning all of his dvd's to avi files. How do I put avi files on the touch. Does itunes convert or do I need third party software. Also what should avi's be ripped at to get good quality. I read 2000 bitrate but I don't know much more then that since I just started doing this yesterday. Any suggestions would help.

    U'r gonna have to convert them to mp4...google Videora iPod Touch...or go to winavi and get the avi to mp4 convertor. It takes longer but I prefer Vidora because the foramt is perfect for the touch screen! Then just import into iTunes and alls good!

    Handbrake is an excellent program but that's only good if you have the DVD to start with. If you have AVI then you need to use something else.

    I personally use meGUI since it's an excellnet opensource tool using the open source x264 encoder. Very fast, very manipulable and very educational.

    Wil two pass encoding you can get your typical 90 min film down to approx 400MB-450MB whilst maintaining excellent qulity for portable playback.
