video2ipod will take a mythtv video, transcode it however you tell it  
(default is for a high quality ipod video - I know that sounds like an  
oxymoron but it rivals standard definition tv in most situations) and  
will even make an rss feed of the files is transcodes for you. I use  
it to mark shows I want on my ipod. I subscribe to the feed and my  
iPhone is filled with video for me to watch while I'm bored at  
work^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^Htaking my lunch break.
