Comments on: Nashville PUG - Movies On Your PDA/Smartphone Demo

Michael T. Ashby writes, Picture this - you show up for a meeting only to find out that the other party is going to be 30 minutes late. Argh! "Now what?" you think to yourself as you contemplate what you can occupy yourself for the next half hour. You're a pretty savvy Palm user, so instead of just sitting on your hands, you pull out your handheld to watch a movie.

Go to brighthand and search the forums for Junglemike and his movie conversion guides awesome.

The world will end in 2006. Just as it was predicted in the bible along with the release of Microsoft Longhorn.... :p

This is kind of old news as far as technology is concerned, but I don't know many people who do more than download ready-made clips from the internet. A walkthrough of the process would be beneficial to a lot of folks. I'm kind curious about his DVD ripping methods, since it does seem like he's using something like Pocket-DVD Studio which optimizes the output.

Correction: does NOT seem like he's using something like Pocket-DVD Studio.

Darn typos!

You don't need to pay for these DVD ripping softwares. All you need is XMPEG and the DivX/XVid codecs installed on your PC as well VirtuaDub for later optimization.

if anyone would like to send me a Movie/DVD to Palm OS tutorial, I would compensate them for a well written, concise article. Email me for more details.

I have VirtualDub and the other tools, but what I was trying to avoid was the extra steps. I did not mind extra work for better quality, but now that the most recent version of Pocket-DVD has comparable quality, and the encoding time is faster than realtime, I thought it was worthwhile.

VirtualDub has a learning curve, and u gotta DL all these codecs and stuff. Plus, it doesn't always turn out right and it takes time to convert the files.

Pocket DVD i hear simplifies all that. It's supposed to be faster and easier to fit stuff onto SD cards.
