    Handbrake Video Settings?

    I've Googled around and can't seem to find anything out there with good settings to convert movies into a quality format for the A100. I've been using Handbrake for years to convert DVDs to my iPod Touch and more recently my Motorola Android phone. But obviously the A100 can handle a better quality image. I've tried converting with their iPad setting, but I found the aspect ratio to be stretched out too wide. "Normal" setting seemed to work, but today I tried watching something and found that it also looked somewhat stretched. Using MX Video, I was able to get it to fill the screen but I would prefer to get it to convert to exactly the right size to begin with. Also if there's anything I can do to improve the image quality. I feel like the stretchiness is due to the dedicated toolbar that Honeycomb forces into the bottom sliver of the screen, thus removing it from use. (Rude.) But I'm not technically-minded enough to even begin to figure out how many pixels that uses to try and adjust the aspect ratio numbers.

    Is there anyone here using Handbrake who could offer up some nice pre-set settings I could just type in and have at it? Thanks in advance for your help!

    I would suggest converting them to MP4 format.

    I use the Normal profile and then do some tweaking in the advanced tab to make it go faster. The tweaking can be found in the handbrake manual.

    I too am having a hard time uploading/watching videos properly. My question is, if this device is HDMI out capable and HD, why convert to an mp4 format?

    Because it reduces the size of the file making it more manageable for the tab and preventing lag time.

    Tried bittorrent myself and gave up. Have half a dozen started but still empty files. There are apps out there to manage bittorent on your home computer and to transfer the files back and fro, but if the problem is that you can't download, period, then that's probably not much help. On that tack, if you don't have wireless at home, go sit at McD's or the library and mess around with the WiFi settings.

    Cheers
