    How do you convert a movie using Penguin Encoder on a Macbook?
    I already have the movie saved on my desktop but its not in MP4 file.

    I clicked optimize, then selected iPhone (WIFI 480x360) Then launched.

    A bunch of files streamed through the box then it went blank. It only took about 5 seconds. I couldn't find a file afterwards and that seemes way too fast.

    If it took 5 seconds, you did something wrong. Unless the video is like, 3 seconds long.

    Try with Handbrake.

    And what is the file type of the Input file?

    I'm not sure what the file type is, the movie was orignally put on a computer using DVD decrypter and there were two folders created Audio_TS and Video_TS. There are probably 15 items in Video_TS. Should I be using a different program at first, like DVD shrink? I thought I've converted movies before and they needed to be compressed down to 1 file, not 15.

    Thanks

    Ohhh, you were trying to convert the DVD. If so, then use Handbrake. Its specifically designed for DVDs. But also allows single files like AVI, MPEG, etc.
