iPod Compression Tests

I recently did several compression tests for the Video iPod, aimed at helping people create good compression settings for preparing videos for iTunes and the Video iPod. If you are using iTunes 6, it appears to be more forgiving and allowing playback of more types of QuickTime videos than the Video iPod.

In my testing I compressed 19 videos for iTunes and the Video iPod and all 19 played back successfully inside using iTunes 6. Only 17 of the videos compressed played backed successfully on the Video iPod. The videos that did not play on the Video iPod used 2-pass VBR for the compression method. I compressed to H.264/AVC, MPEG-4, and QuickTime in my testing.

I posted a list of many of the settings used to successfully compress videos for the Video iPod, using QuickTime Pro and Sorenson Squeeze Compression Suite on our website. They can be found in the GeniusDV Video Compression Forum.
