h.264 yields the best quality per unit file size. It is a much slower conversion though. I recommend Xvid with a slightly higher than usual bitrate. It would be much faster with same quality as the slower but smaller h.264 file.

If you going from encypted DVD's to the P3 then I highly recommend DVDfab platinum as the fastest solution. But for a more cheaper solution download the free Dvd decrypter (won't work on all encrypted DVD's though) and the free Dvd catalyst at . I recommend the awesome paid version of Dvd catalyst though for $9.99 as you get more options (like framerate,etc.).

For non copyprotected DVD's or plain video files just use DVD catalyst, it should have the P3's settings already built in for less hassel.

I don't use the P3 much for videos, but h264 I've just been able to drag and drop without any conversion. Check the maximum resolution, though.

What would the max resolution be? I've looked over the manual and saw no mention of that.

I have a bunch of HD camcorder videos (1900x1280 I think) that I want to convert to use on the P3...not much luck finding software that'll do the job yet.

I may have to use the simply awful software that came with the camcorder to make a dvd-quality copy of the movies, then use something else to down-convert even further, but that's alot of extra work.

I'd be grateful for any suggestions.

You could try SUPER. It will convert just about any video type to any other video type and will down convert respectively. It's also freeware without ads, pop-ups. SPyware and malware free too.

Nevermind. I stumbled across a Wikipedia reference to Nero Vision, which I already had and didn't know it could do what I needed.

Tested it, seems to downsize video acceptably - have to play with it some more, but looks promising.

anyway, I second the XviD or h.264 suggestions.

I have been using Any Vedio Convertor. It is an open source software.

Use FormatFactory, best quality is .wmv with high bitrate, smallest file is .mp4 with low bitrate. Try.
