    What did you do? Upscale? You say your source is DVD but then go on to say you are encoding at iPad resolution, which is 1024*(aspectratio). DVD's are better off not being upscaled. If you use a source which is HD, then of-course use the 1024*(aspectratio) to get max quality for the screen size. Up to 1280x720 is supported, but you can cut corners to save on file size.

    I honestly have no idea... just playing monkey see monkey does. my original source was encoded by handbrake using normal settings and h.264 codec. 718X474 picture size. In video monkey, i set the upper limit of picture size to 1024X720. which i assume only constrains the picture, not upscales it.

    but, I hardly think this particular thread is the proper place to discuss such specifics. I think it is more after what programs and settings give a reasonable picture on the ipad.

    its the nature of many apple products (especially the Ipad) to just follow simple directions and have it just work; not worrying about what is going on behind the scenes. worrying about upscaling and encoding issues goes against everything apple's marketing strategy is pushing. so let me know if you have any settings which will work better. (optimize size vs quality)

    Are you saying that if you have a program that converts to iPod you can use it on the iPad too??? What format does the iPad take?? There are a couple of converters I have used but it does take a long time to do it.

    When trying to convert Star Trek, I was told that I needed a 64 bit version of VLC. However there is no 64 bit version. Now I have a 64 bit version of Handbrake & cant find a 32 bit version. Help please.

    "For those of you thats not familiar with video conversion for the old trusty iPod or iPhone these free apps for Mac and PC will help you out in a snap to convert your fav videos to iPad.

    Yes, I know that iTunes will do it aswell but in order for this to happen it needs to be in mp4, mov format already! These apps will convert anything you throw at it (maybe not flash, but Apple Quicktime will take care of that for a price!)"

    Max, I've used iSquint to convert videos to iPod size, which works for my Droid. Will those converted videos also work on my (not yet owned) iPad as well? Or do I have to convert them to a different format, like the Apple TV?
    Thanks!

    Remember Handbrake is in active development, so you can download the latest build from their website (in two parts).

    It also will use subtitles if they are in the srt format.
    NB I've been trying to convert some subs to srt using vobsub, but with varying results :(
