    Hey guys, I've been trying to convert some videos with Xilsoft converter and I was wondering which format should I convert it to? The standard mp4 640*480 or the new MP4 AVC (h.264) but I think they only support that in 320*480 resolution?

    Anyone know which is the best format to convert to to maintain video/audio quality. Also I've noticed that sometimes my videos lose audio sync after a while. Anyone know how to solve this problem?

    Thanks!

    I use VLC to convert my Videos.
    I convert them with Mpeg-4 codec @ 512kbit/s video + 128 kbit/sec audio -> resolution 480x320

    .h264 didnt work for me, dunno why... have to try it again some time

    I prefer Videora iPod Touch Video Convertor. VERY easy to use for the basic user, and very straightforward to use for the advanced user.

    VisualHub is super fast and works great, but you have to pay for it

    visual hub works great and I always use the h264 codec. The quality is very nice.

    If you are planning to use visual hub just use the "high" setting.
    The "go nuts" settings makes huge files and longer encoding with no extra detail.

    Hope that helps

    That is very geeky, but I have done that before, though not for conversions to iPods, only for music videos, extracting videos, etc. Why use those when you can just do it easily with a single program?

    Same reason why you'd do it for any other videos... to fine tune and control every aspect of the video encoding process
