HandBrake Settings [iPod 5G]
The 5th Generation iPod with the latest firmware will output (and play on the built in screen) a maximum video resolution of 640 x 480. Note: PAL DVD Resolution is 720 x 576; Blu-Ray is 1920 x 1080; iPad2 is 1024 x 768.
The HandBrake encoding software should therefore be set as “iPod Legacy”.
In addition, set “2-Pass Encoding” on the Video Tab to give the best results.
