    I used the iPod (not a typo) preset in Handbrake and set the width to 640. The height was left blank to preserve the aspect ratio.

    File size for an average length (1:45-2:00) 16:9 or 2.4:1 aspect movie is typically around 600-750MB.

    To me the quality on the iPad screen is very good, the output to the TV is somewhere between standard def TV and DVD, and the file size is reasonable. Hope this helps.

    Thanks for reply I use Magic DVD ripper and prest iPad settings but came out not very good quality end file was 1.8gb.
    I might just have a play around with settings to get better quality.

    720p works well. I use handbrake for my video conversions. Or sometimes when I'm just lying down on the couch and can't be bothered to convert, I use Air Video and stream the movie from my computer. My laptop is fairly spec'd so I can set the live conversion to a pretty high setting which looks nice on my iPad 2.

    Use the same ratio resolution the original movie is, then a size akin to the best iPad dimension.
