    Does handbrake work well with HD file types such as MKV's ??? i have a lot of HD movies in mkv format and it seems no matter what BS conversion program i use i still get crappy mp4s.

    I have not done any with mkv, but there is an mkv in the drop down box in output settings.(see above pic where it shows mp4)

    Try it out if you like and report back. I would love to hear your findings...

    Double checked the site, it says it's compatable with a Mac:
    From HandBrake
    Details:
    HandBrake is an open-source, GPL-licensed, multiplatform, multithreaded video transcoder, available for MacOS X, Linux and Windows.

    ok so its done and i played it on the storm, quality is great although I would like a bigger image. The image runs through side to side, but the top and bottom are dark, image is shown only in the middle of the screen can I fix it in the settings or is it just the format of this movie??

    The ones I have played were full screen...I don't see any options but will see if there is an answer for this.

    It has to do with the aspect ratio. My bet is that your original source is a wide screen source. You could edit the height, but you would distort the video. The only thing you could do to get a full screen with original resolution is crop the width, but you loose the wide screen view.
