Convert Video for iPod / iPhone

Resolution

The iPod Nano resolution is 320×240.

The iPod Touch and iPhone resolution is 480×320.

FFMPEG

Use the following command to convert an FLV file to an MPEG file. That file, then, can be imported into iTunes and converted to MP4 from there.

ffmpeg -i file.flv -s 320x240 file.mpeg

More Information

See my page on how to Rip a DVD with FFmpeg for some other conversion examples.

I also have more information about video formats and codecs, ripping home video from a DVD, a story board sketching, and more on my video page.

There's an online service, http://vixy.net, that will convert FLV files to MP4. It will also fetch YouTube video's and convert those.
