Re: Post Your "Best Settings" here and Why.

Thanks Nightstrm... I am finding that using the Universal setting is taking quite a while to encode... a 2 hour movie is taking 3.5 hours to encode. Does this sound right? It doesn't seem like it took this long with the Apple TV or iPod Hi-Rez that I used to use... I am using a mac mini 2 ghz with 2...

Universal Preset question

I am hoping to find one file type for playback on my iPod Touch, wife's iPod 80gb (non-Classic), Father-In-Law's Nano, and Apple TV, and I was hoping this was the solution... of course I want the best possible resolution so it still looks good on the big screen through the Apple TV. However, I am te...
