[QUOTE=petworks97;2175554]What is the highest bitrate that itunes will allow? I am using the largest resolution that will work on the ipod. also i am using 29fps, should i set that to 30fps. thanks[/QUOTE]
It depends on what profile you’re using to convert and what your Ipod can play, not iTunes.
With MPEG-4, the max bitrate is about 2500 kps. The Ipod will support up to about 230,400 pixels with MPEG-4 format
With h264, the max bitrate is about 768 kps and 76,800 pixels, respectively.
H264 format will require much more from your cpu and will take longer to convert.
