Yes, I have used this scriptlet many times. Here's a problem though... and I hope it can be addressed quickly (as in today) because I'll be flying to Japan tomorrow and will be there for two weeks. I'd like to watch a couple of full-length movies on my BB8100!

Here's the problem. I encoded two movies down to BB size but these are formatted for wide-screen display. What do I need to change to make it look right on my BB display? Right now, they come out squished up horizontally.

Okay... right now, I'm re-coding it... don't have the original files available to me at the moment... hope the quality stays good. I set the target aspect ratio to be wider... I have no idea how the BB will play it though...

Okay, I recoded two movies. I just set the RES from 240:180 to 240:120 and it looks much better now... no notable decrease in size and so no decrease in quality is expected.... looks pretty good so far. I can still read the subtitles so I'm good.
