Possibly should have included this with my last email:

Hi there,

I wonder if anyone is having any success with exporting video to an
ipod, specifically in this case one of the nanos that can do video if
that's relevant.

I have a setup working using the myth2ipod script which calls
nuvexport for you.  It successfully transcodes the file which I can
play with quicktime or on the ipod so thats all good.

However the quality isn't great, specifically there is a effect that
looks to be something to do with the compression.  It is most
pronounced in a scene where there is very little change it gets
progressivly worse and the corrects itself, which leads to a jerky
effect.  If you want to have a look here is a sample output file.

I don't really know enough about video to know what options if any
there are to fiddle with so any help would be appreciated.
