640*352 on 5G iPod
In case you didn't know already... Apple mentions the 5G iPod can take MPEG-4 files of up to 480*480 at 2.5 Mbps. What it actually means is that a single frame can take up to 230400 pixels, and you can also have, say, a video encoded at 640*352 (as shown in this picture at macbidouille...). While the iPod itself will scale the video down to 320*176 on its screen, it outputs the actual 640*352 if you hook the iPod up to a video beamer or a TV set, creating something much better than a lowly 320*240 video. So... Yes: The 5G iPod can be used as a media center of some sort. And yes you can rip DVDs to the iPod at 640*X resolution with Handbreak. Just make sure you rename the files .m4v - else they won't run on the iPod. - Now we're off for the weekend. :)
