    I have only done one movie (so far!) with Handbrake and used the mp4 hi-res option and it worked great! I know you're dying to know.... it was "Hunt for Red October"

    Captain Marco Ramius (Sean Connery) to Jack Ryan (Alec Baldwin):
    "Hey Ryan, be careful what you shoot at. Most things in here don't react to well to bullets!"

    As I have posted elsewhere in these forums, I have used the PLIST files downloaded here for great results on iPad:
    How to Create iPad Formatted Videos Using HandBrake or FFMpeg

    I have encoded about 8 movies using the IPAD FULL file.
    Finished movies are about 1.5GB +/- depending on movie length.

    Don't worry about the 4:3 formatting notes. Widescreen movies play with banding top and bottom just like the source DVD.

    Sounds like the same format as hi-res. HFRO was 1.57gb and it is something like 135 minutes.

    Could be. All I know is that I struggled to get results until I found that link and everything worked like a charm. FYI I don't use handbrake to rip, though. I use DVD Decrypter to rip and use Handbrake only for encoding.

    Very important step! You can encode to mp4 directly from DVD... if you have a lot of time!

    Exactly. DVD Decrypter rips a DVD in about 10 minutes. So I rip the DVDs and then set up a batch process with Handbrake to encode overnight.

    The same experience, Takes a long time on my iMac though (avg 5 hours per 1.5 hour movie).

    Are you ripping straight from a DVD, or a Divx encoded AVI perhaps? Just curious.....
