Hello all, First of all many thanks for this software, which, after a week of experimentation proves to be the ONLY software solution that has helped me to successfully encode dvds that I can play both on my iPod classic and from iPod classic to tv. I have managed to do this using the iPod 5.5g high resolution profile, and setting my resolution at 640 x 480, or equivalent for anamorphic. No letterboxing. Hoping to get better quality for less space, I tried the H264 profile included in the devices.ini file, but only produced a file with audio, no video. (although "encoding" took a long time and produced a large enough file!) I then spent hours reading through this forum, discovered the "generic h264" settings, cut and pasted them into devices.ini, and ended up with the same result. So I thought to myself, maybe it's because I don't have the x264 package referred to. Found it, downloaded it, installed it (I think), and tried again. No joy. Perhaps I should stop, settle for mp4/m4v, and return to my real job, but it seems so simple that I'm driving myself crazy. If anybody has any suggestions, I would be most grateful. I know a reasonable amount about computers, very little about codecs, etc., so if you could reply in "for dummies" language (ie: "x264 is not a codec, it's a vitamin...") that might make my next attempts more successful than those so far.
