    I use Handbrake, and I need to know the settings to convert a Widescreen Movie, 16:9, to be full screen on the iPhone. But I don't anything to be stretched, I want the movie to look right. Please help me.

    Hey
    You can get good quality DVD's onto the iphone/itouch, but there will be a black band above and below it, but its not that big at all. You can also double tap a playing movie to make it full screen, but it cuts of the edges a little, but its not noticeable.

    Here is what you do.
    You need to firstly have the DVD decrypted, to do this, use something called DVD43, its free, it decrypts the DVD on the fly, in about 5 seconds, and makes everything nice and easy.

    Then on HandBreak
    You select the Preset called "iPhone/iPod Touch"

    Then you click Start

    My DVD's work great doing that, and it is good quality Rips

    No because if you don't want a 16:9 movie stretched there will be black bars. And if you want it fullscreen without being stretched a part is cut off.
    Unless there's something like Photoshop CS4's stretching feature

    Reboot the computer after you have installed it. Make sure you set input file/location and output file/location. Also make sure the presets are set for what you want
