Well, after having ripped about 10 movies today for my iPhone, I finally found settings that seemed to work ok for me. I use MP4 file format, mpeg-4/aac codecs, framerate of 24, average bitrate of 500, Output picture settings of 480 x whatever keeps the aspect ration the same. I set the audio to 64 bitrate, although even the lesser ones sound fine to me over the speaker or headphones. All this produces a movie file about 400-500MB in size depending on the length of the movie. I am going to try some smaller output sizes to see what they look like. Ideally I would like to get the fils sizes down to about 250MB without losing quality in sound or picture, but havent really had much time today to play around with it. Just wanted to get some on it for vacation next week to watch enroute.
