    Anyone used VideoZilla? Just saw an add on Google, and it looks really easy to use. I've never heard of it before, so before I drop $30 on this converter, I'd like to know it works?

    My sound taxi seems to work pretty easily, but there's no option to covert 480 x 360. Only 640 x something I can't recall.

    A stupid question here....if 480x360 is 4:3 then how come when you watch a video its in wide screen mode on the Storm? Basically a 4:3 movie would have bars on the side of the screen when you flipped the Storm horizontal to make it a square picture?
    Just make the image 480x270 and you'll have letterboxes at the top and bottom of a screen like a 4x3 tv, or you can keep it at 480x360 and loose the edges of the picture, the choice is yours.

    You don't need to convert to 480x360, 320x240 works, you just need the 4:3 ratio..

    Try super first, it's free, if you find it AND roxio don't meet your needs then go drop the $30.....

    I haven't used super yet, but can I take a dvd iso that I've ripped with dvdshrink and just import it into super and then convert that, or are there extra steps for me to do? Sorry about the newbie-ish question, just want to know how to load some dvds on the storm.

    I looked at Roxio, that's a charge, too, isn't it?

    I know my sound taxi has 320x240, and I can use it in high quality.

    Having never done this, it looks like I'm going to be able to convert the files as necessary to MPEG-4 (with 320x240 per your suggestion) and then just drag and drop.

    Roxio is part of desktop manager, it's kinda bloated, but for video, in media manager it's very simple to use, just make sure you're not running anything else when you try to use it, cause it's a resource/RAM hog.

    Does the storm support mp4s? I have some already on my ipod classic I would love to transfer without hassling with conversions.

    I'm all about the ffmpeg myself. If your the type who doesn't care for the command line then there is a frontend called WinFF. It is by far the easiest I've ever used.

    Good quality, pretty quick too (although I do not know how well the Windows version runs as I use the Linux version).

    AVS4You.com/downloads has some pretty good options for downloading programs that will convert video files. So far it seems good, but I haven't actually used the download yet........ so who knows.....

    I like DVDFab. It is a nice little program to have.

    Here's a slightly different question... I do videoconferencing from time to time. I'd like to use my 8350i as a camera that can feed video and audio into a videoconference. Are there any codecs available for BBs that do this? I'd need h.323 protocol support.

    Check out this thread. I used it to great success. There is one error in the settings used by the OP in this thread. I posted a correction to it, in that thread, but here it is here too. The kbps post by the OP is 764, and that is incorrect, it should be 768.

    How to Convert DVD to Storm

    And here is the link to the software used in the above thread.

    Handbrake

    I also use this program to decode and copy it to my HD first.

    DVDFab and select DVDFab HD Decrypter. It is the free part of the program.
