    Seems easy, drag and drop. I just started converting so it is not done yet. I'm using the "go nuts" setting since my Ipod is the 80g video. This outta take a while, there's 15 episodes........

    I D/L'ed some FLV files (World Series of Poker episodes) and I'm putting them on my Ipod.

    Am I going about it the right way or is there a better free program?

    ffmpegx is better if you take a bit to learn how to use it

    more customizable...I can get in there and specify bitrates, max file sizes, how to encode the audio, etc.

    After a week of messing around, I settled on VisualHub actually...haven't looked back.

    Not too shabby. I get the choice to use h.264 encoding, but that's all. Since I have 5 size options it is not bad.

    I only intend to rip FLV's to the Ipod so this may just be the best bet. The drag and drop was incredibly simple.

    Yeah, its actually pretty much everything you'll need...I need forced Quicktime decoding option because I'm really picking about maintaining the brightness of the source files, and I like using two pass so I can go to low quality...I get around the same quality video as Xvid in about 2/3 the space then...I can't afford a new HD so every last MB is precious, and I figure it's going to be the same on the iPhone when I get one. :hsd:
