    I searched the forums, but couldn't find a good post. I'm trying to convert some video for my playbook to play and just wanted to verify ...

    It can record in 1080p (1920x1080) but for playback, it is (1024x600), correct?

    For internal playback, it's 1024 X 600. It can output 1080p through HDMI, though, so it depends on how you want to watch your video.

    the exact aspect ratio would be 16:9.375, but you can convert movies in 16:9, i don't think a few lines of of pixel missing would bother you

    Yes it's almost a perfect widscreen aspect. There is a slight bar on the top and bottom if you are playing a 16/9 video.

    Thanks for the clarification, everyone! I'm trying to convert an HD movie for my playbook-The aspect ratio of the movie is 1920x800.

    Anyone have any suggested programs? I think I'm going to try out Freemake - looks like they just have a preset for the playbook.

    What format is the movie currently in? Does it necessarily need to be converted?

    The current format is .mkv. Unfortunately, I need to convert it for 2 reasons ...

    1. It uses AC3 audio
    2. The file is 15 gigs and my playbook is only the 16 gig model (definitely kicking myself for not going bigger)
