Hope you guys like this!!!

New build v2.0 - Better, Faster, more intuitive!!!
This is a major upgrade, lot of enhancements!!!
1) Added volume boost option as %
2) Conversion Progress in built
3) Latest FFMPEG Build (SVN-r19958 22/09/09)

7) For debugging, a batch file is created in the installation directory which has the command line for ffmpeg.
8) Sample your Video: You can use the StartTime and Duration of the clip to be converted relative to StartTime..
9) Supports an ideal configuration for PSP videos

Getting to optimal target resolution, can be done step by step, that's how I arrived at optimal resolution for Touch-HD.

1) Target resolution = 800*480
2) Aspect Ratio = 800/480 = 1.666666666666667
3) Now start tweaking one of the parameters, lets reduce the height to 348,
in order to maintain aspect ratio we have to multiply (1.666666666666667 * 348) = 580.000000000000116 ~ 580
4) Thats it !! now set your target resolution in the converter to 580*348 and see how it performs

Make sure you increase your bitrate to get sharper and better quality.
For Touch-HD, I use the following configuration:
Target Resolution = 540x384
Bitrate = 1500

Since I'm using Linux on all my systems but am also a little too lazy to try and find out the optimal ffmpeg-parameters for my Blackstone - would it be possible to get a non-compiled version of VideoConvertor? If it's java, it should probably be fixable for Linux too...

I'm having problems in converting a 720p mkv file to a WVGA (800x480) format. For some reason, the screen keeps getting stretched vertically. How can I make this program automatically fit a WVGA format in the settings?

Arrow Try the following configuration
What is your configuration? (Screenshot or generated .bat file will help).
Tried encoding a sample video, take a look at the configuration used...

The Touch Pro 2 fails at playing HTC-HD Profiled videos.

To play smooth videos on the Rhodium, change the resolution what I've found to be the optimal resolution: 640 x 384

I don't know why 800 x 480 doesn't work well...

Yes thats true, rendering video of that size requires better processor, even Touch-HD fails to perform well at that resolution. Thanks for sharing optimal resolution: 640 x 384 for touch-pro, will include that to profiles.xml.

I am looking at optimizing the perfomance at 800x480, its closely related to the codec used for conversion, will include this fix in the next release.
