    Can others perform range selection...because I can't. Here's what it says on their website:

    The only difference is that the Light Edition is limited to 700 MB encodings and does not allow for range selection.

    Ahh....so, I'm going to want to do 4:3 aspect ratio on a Fullscreen version of the same movie instead of the widescreen version as it has the section with the most action. Just picked this up from some website:

    While TVs usually have an aspect ratio of 4:3 (4 units wide, 3 units high), movies vary from 1.78:1 to 2.35:1 and almost anything in between. The result is that on a regular TV set, the movie must either be letterboxed, which creates black bars at the top and bottom of your screen to house the whole image, or the image is cropped on the left and right hand side to use the TVís full height. Usually, when an important piece of the image drops out of the visible screen, the picture is panned to the side to show this piece, hence the term pan & scan. If you want to enjoy all the details of a movie, you should definitely prefer the widescreen letterboxed versions to the Pan & Scan alternative, because this is the way the filmmakers originally intended you to see the movie.
    The fullscreen movie that I ripped yesterday was 3/2 aspect ratio (slightly more than 4/3)....the difference between them is slight.

    Tony,
    Thanks for the great post.
    Is anyone having problem with playback volume on the Treo650. I ripped the Matrix at 32 kb/s and it played back audio on my Treo only for the introduction. I ripped Harry Potter at 128 kb/s and received audio for the full movie, HOWEVER, the volume was very low. I have the 'Boost Audio level' box checked. Is anyone else having volume playback problems on their Treo 650? Keith.

    It's a coincidence you mentioned that. I too thought the volume was a bit low with my movie burned with FairUse, but thought maybe it was my imagination.

    When I use my other movie burner, Pocket DVD Studio, there is a provision for increasing volume, and increasing brightness too. I usually increase these 2 settings when using Pocket DVD Studio. I wish I could figure out if these options exist with FairUse...maybe we need to upgrade to the paid version possibly? Anyone know??

    In TCPMP, do you have the preamp and volume turned up all the way? They are under the "Pref" button.

    I have a question for those who are able to figure out burning in full screen crop without the border lines with FairUse:

    When burning in full screen crop, does this INCREASE the file size of your movie, versus not burning in full crop?

    If burning in full crop, is the movie just as smooth in playback withOUT any pauses or momentary freezes throughout the movie?

    I ask these questions because when I do burning in full screen crop using Pocket DVD Studio, the file size swells up to almost double the size! File size is muuuuuch larger in full screen crop! Why?? Also, sometimes the movie will momentarily pause/freeze throughout the entire movie which also bothers me. The momentary pause happens with some movies, but not with others, when doing a full screen crop burn.

    I also get these pauses with some movies if I do a 2 Pass Encode, versus 1 Pass Encode. Sometimes the 2 Pass setting seems to enhance the movie somewhat, other times, the movie seems to suffer with momentary pauses throughout the movie. Every movie acts differently with the 2 Pass mode, and I never know which movie will benefit or suffer from the 2 Pass mode burning.

    This is why I end up re-burning the same movie over and over again until I find the ideal setting that looks good in playback quality, without annoying me with these minor quirks. Okay, okay...am I being too fussy for a movie watching experience on a 2 inch screen?! I hardly complain about any movie while watching in a real movie theater! :-)))

    Casey, I don't have problems running fullscreen or close to fullscreen. Are you using TCPMP? Also try doing a reset right before watching any major movies. The 1.78 rule in FairUse is pretty good. I can see going a lot higher than that may cause problems. Also, you can bring down sound quality a bit for less processing on treo.

    Yeah, for some reason the volume seems way low by default. At least on the T650.

    Well, I also own the Pocket DVD Studio, but hadn't used it in a while because I had been unhappy with results with it and MMplayer. However, I decided to check it out again and pleasantly found that it had been upgraded substantially. I still use the 1.78 rule, but I crop and stretch it to 320 x 320 and I have to admit, using Core is the only way to go with Video playback. There is very little pixelation and the playback is smooth for both audio and video. For those with brightness issues, there is a section under video on Core that allows you to up it for your movie, as I had to adjust a bit when I was watching my copy of Napolean Dynamite.

    Also, to those movie fanatics out there, I understand that you love your movies, but at 1.78Meg/Min, it amazes me at the quality. After all, this IS only a 2 inch screen. For me, though, my primary concern is space.

    It shouldn't. FairUse asks you for the MAXIMUM file size for the movie. It then asks for the resolution. It ends up with the same file saze regardless of the resolution you choose. It prolly does this by dropping some frames or something. Movies/TV are 24fps, right? Well, I here your eyes can only pick up 10fps (I'd think it's a lil' more, but I'm not too concerned with it). To get my movies at a decent size with Auto Gordian Knot, I had to set it to 15 fps in order to keep the resolution. Fair trade off in my book.

    I gotz no ideaz how Pocket DVD works.

    Umm...yes. The only time TCPMP tells me I have dropped frames is if I pause it or hit the menu key or something like that, which is more than understandable.

    Does PocketDVD ask you for the maximum output file size? If it does, you shouldn't be getting double. Otherwise, PocketDVD just goes about the ripping process a lil differently.

    I'm not sure what the difference is, really. I'm guessing that 2 Passes will provide you with a video more accurate to the one you requested earlier in the program.

    Yes, you are definitely being too fussy over this. But to each his own...if you enjoy spending several hours watching movies on the Treo. By golly you might as well spend a lil time tweaking the settings 'til you like it.

    FairUse wizard does the conversion. I can't recall if I had to download anything extra to do the ogm files, or if it worked right out of the box. Do you not have the option?

    Tony,

    WAr Eagle again. I have used your very helpful instructions on how to rip a dvd movie to play on the 650. The first time I repped it and tried to open it in TCPTM I got the error message that "TCPMP could not open an .avi file. I ripped it again this am and I get the error message that TCPMP cannot open an mpeg4 file. I get audio, but no video. I followed your directions regardig the output file type carefully I thought. What am I missing. Also if I have to rip it again can I use the files that are already ripped to spped up the process? Thanks in advance for your help.
