Compressing/converting movies to watch on e70 question

I recently got a Nokia e70 and want to compress some movies to the size of the display to take up less space. My buddy had an iPaq and did this and used a program to make them smaller than 128mb and landscape widescreen with good resolution. Just curious what programs are out there and prefer free.

Thanks!

Not free, but Smartmovie or Makayma video converter can do the job!

I think I've got it figured out here. I just need to fine tune the settings on it. Thanks!

There are a number of posts on SUPER setting in this forum. A lot depends on what you are converting from, but generally you want to go into the H.263 format.

Thanks Rafe. I did some searches before creating this thread and yeilded little. Now that I know what software to use I'll try some more searches using that term. Thanks!

I re read your post and H.263 for video w/AAC for audio is what I'm using but I was wondering more about the other settings to achieve the best PQ w/o taking up too much space since size is also an important consideration.

Also, what would be the best format to convert my ISO DVDs into first since SUPER doesn't seem to like converting ISO to H.263?

It's free. And it can convert pretty much every format too. Maybe the only thing it can not do is convert direct from a DVD or CD.

That's pretty much what I was wondering since SUPER is free and seems to be pretty powerful. Just wondering why I would want to pay for something and what it can offer me above what the free option does.
