    I'd take a punt at, you can't watch good quality videos on moonshell.
    But I dunno.

    What converter are you using? BatchDPG or the one that comes with Moonshell?

    The DS isn't built for watching regular movies, so don't be surprised if your videos aren't very good in quality.

    I love how two of the three responses are "you can't watch high quality movies on the DS"

    BS. The screen may be small, but there's no reason why you can't get high quality on what you can see. Either follow the BatchDPG instructions at http://www.scdev.org/forum/index.php/topic,11437.0.html or look into DSMPlay if you have a lot of room on your card. DSM format is basically lossless but takes up tons of space as a result.

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    I've used those settings, on 1 pass and it's not bad. I have no problems with .dpgs on Moonshell.

    it's the additional passes that let mencoder do some of the cleanup to produce better quality video


    2 passes is usually enough

    From Where???
    i've done alot of 3 pass encodes using the "high quality" wide screen specs from both vob and xvid sources and they look just as good as the original. i only notice some dithering issues at times on close-ups and flat colors. but i'm on the go, i have video, and its free... i don't complain.

    That is pretty much what not to do


    Make sure you first turn off Gopskip, ADC, and dithering for moonshell (should be global.ini), so the videos don't skip. Ultra profile and everything you quoted, in batchdpg
