Hi,

I'm using Pocket DVD to copy the DVDs, and MM Player to watch on the Tungsten T3 - however, when I play it,  I get a video butrate is too high ... can't decode iit in real time.

Any advice on how to use Pocket DVD for Palm, MMplayer or a combination of both to get the video bitrate down would be greatly appreciated  Smiley

Sorry I don't know the answer to this one Andy as I haven't used Pocket DVD but have you tried experimenting by dropping the screen resolution back and ensuring you have the frame rate set at 12.5 fps?

At least if you get something working you can find your way up from there. PocketDVD say that you should be able to hit 464 x 272 x 700kbps which sounds like pretty good going.

I'm mainly a Mac user (although I use a XP box for development) and there's nothing as nice as PocketDVD available for Mac that I've found. But for other Mac users reading this I use a combination of ffmpegX or DVDBackup to rip DVD's and then Kinoma producer to transcode them to the Palm. Kinoma is about US $39 the rest is free.

A great bunch of Mac video tools are here : http://www.pure-mac.com/video.html

Let us know how you get on

Just an update ... I've worked it out, see http://www.mobile-learning.blog-city.com/read/1079122.htm

To be honest, JungleMike sorted it out using some freeware and I've simply added a little bit of value with some screenshots etc.,, links available from http://www.mobile-learning.blog-city.com/read/1079122.htm

So I can now relax at conferences with The Good, The Bad and the Ugly - a great application of hand held technology  Grin
