    Hi everyone, just bought a 16g iPod Touch yesterday, and had a wonderful time jailbreaking it to 1.1.2.

    I spent alot of time converting some DVDs and videos for the touch, too (though subtitles are still off - can only burn them in, since closed-captioning support isn't really up there with PC encoders yet).

    I'm interested in making apps for the touch/phone too, since I'm an IT student and have to program anyway

    So far, I'm loving the touch, though the price I paid for it (~SGD$618) could almost get me an iPhone (harder to find, but local eBay has one for ~SGD$850, while a friend is selling one for SGD$770). Can anyone brainwash me into not hurting for an iPhone? Haha.

    Great finding such a community, hope to post more soon.

    hi, I basically went through a few steps to rip a dvd:

    1. Use AnyDVD to get rid of the DVD protections before ripping
    2. Handbrake to encode

    My handbrake settings:
    Preset
    iPhone

    Picture Settings
    I used autocrop on DVDs with 2.35:1 aspect ratios, while I used manual crop of 56 left/right 0 top/bottom on 16:9 aspect ratio movies (the 2.35:1 movies had too much details to warrant cropping off the sides, while the 16:9 movies are still watchable with a little side cropping)
    Deinterlace: I chose original (fast)

    Video Settings
    2-Pass encoding, with Turbo 1st pass
    Video framerate: Automatic
    Quality settings: Use target filesize (I used 400mb for any movie up to 2 hrs, additional 50mb per 1/2 hour thereafter) (i want to squeeze as many as I can)

    Audio & Subtitles
    Bitrate: 112kbps
    Sample rate: 44.1khz
    Audio language and subtitles to your liking

    My settings are more concerned with the minimization of filesize to squeeze as many movies as possible on the touch, while still preserving a comfortable quality. It's definitely not the best quality!
