Just the other day I was trying to figure out how to get a video converted into the right format so I could chuck it onto my iPhone.
“If only Handbrake would read normal video files as well as DVDs” I was thinking.
Well turns out, it does with the latest version. Just point it at the video file (I’m trying it with an MP4), select the iPhone preset and away you go.
Works on Windoze and Linux too – check it out: http://handbrake.fr/
There’s an interesting new video service called VideoJug — it’s been described as the Wikipedia of video sites. Mostly HowTo and ‘Ask the Expert’ type videos. It’s fun watching new entrants into what must be an already overcrowded market. There’s quick videos such as reading body language, making chocolate eclairs and how to be a stand up comedian. Here’s an example of an “Ask the Expert” with Stephen Fry, or Jeeves as I know him best.
