[QUOTE=fenway;2154967]I downloaded and installed VLC and the file created by DVDFab played perfectly - thanks for the link.
I have no idea what “profile” I used - all I did was select Mobile, the iPod/iPhone and Next and it created an mp4 file. I recopied it to iTunes and this time it played so I synched to my iPod and it played there also. Beginner’s luck I guess, but thanks for your help.[/QUOTE]
The default settings should work ok for starters.
Check out the tutorial. You can access this by clicking on the blue[B] ?[/B] icon …upper right of application or one of the stickies near the top of the Fab forum. It explains the basics and you can experiment from there.
If I recall correctly, [B]ipod mpeg-4[/B] is the default profile. Below is a screenshot of the “preloaded” profiles.
Anyway, glad to hear you’re up and running.
