    iPod video on iPhone?
    Shouldn't iPod and iPhone be somewhat compatible? I copied a video from my iPod to my iPhone but it doesn't show good on my iPhone. When I view it on my iPhone the picture is distorted with odd colors on the right side.

    Anyone have some insight? Is my iPhone broken?

    Thanks!

    i would say cause the screen on the video ipod is one inch smaller and the res is much less then an iphone, so if you have the video formated for the vid ipod its gonna be streched and look bad on the iphone. that could be it but if u have its full res that shouldn't be it......

    my 2 cents.

    Try exporting the video using Handbrake 0.9 (freeware). It has a setting specifically for iPhone (and iPod) and they are different aspect ratios. The iPhone is actually lower than the iPod.

    That way you'll be a mile away from him, and you'll have his shoes.

    Thanks, I tried using that but it kept shutting down in the middle of converting.

    Odd. Maybe you need to use Mac the Ripper (depending on the media type) to strip out zero cells and the like? Did you try to convert using iMovie 08? I have used it successfully on VIDEO_TS folders and it works well on iPhone conversion.

    You can rip the file to your Mac with Handbrake, Fast DVD Copy, MAc the Ripper, etc... and then send it to iTunes like any other video. iTunes should optimize it for your phone when sending it. I could be wrong but give it a try.

    I started with ripping it with Mac the Ripper but then I was stuck. iMovie doesn't seem to recognize video_ts files.

    I was able to solve it though by importing the files to Toast and then exporting it from Toast a m4v file. It took a long time though and then iTunes read it as a TV show. Very lengthy process. I am looking for something easier and faster.

    I know CloneDVD can do the job on a PC....really good actually. However, I don't have a license to that software and hope to find something cheaper or even free.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks!

    If you have Quicktime Pro, you can open the iPod movies with it and then export them for the iPhone.
