Alright, so I rip my .avi files to .mp4 in 512kbps and it took quite long and used up a lot of mb. I tryed 216kbps and it took faster and used less mb, ALSO I didn't notice a difference between the two. What is the difference between high and low kbps? I currently use QVGA/15fps/216kbps Mono/48kbps, and use to use QVGA/15fps/512kbps Mono/48kbps but now the 216kbps is faster and smaller in mb. Is there a reason for this, the quality isn't any different between the two.

Also what's the difference between Mono and Stereo, I always used Mono so I'm not farmilar with Stereo.

Thanks!

The more kbps the bigger the file size, and in theory the better the picture quality.

Im 100% sure 512kbps looks better than 216kbps, you're probably not looking hard enough. But if it works for you.... run with it.

The higher the bitrate (kbps) the better the picture quality. I've encoded near 2000kbps for my ipod. Its alot better than at 512kbps. My guess why you're not noticing a difference is because you're encoding either anime or cartoons.

Stereo means theres a different sound track for both ears. Like if a gun is fired from the left.... you would hear it on the left side of the earphones first. Mono means that both sides of the earphones have the same sound.

Or if the video file wasn't a very high quality anyway.

I'm encoding mine at 512KB-768KBps... the quality is decent. 2000kbps is just too big.. thats like bigger than the source file, and the resolution is like two inches wide ;)

Thank you guys for the help, I'm actually converting actual movies not anime or cartoons and the only difference I can see between the two are the tiny words of the credits at the end.
