FYI, I find that transcoding them to smaller files makes them easier to
play (IE, just copy them to the internal drive and then you can play
them on a plane or something too ;-)

I do it with the following command:

/usr/bin/ffmpeg -i THEINPUTFILE.mpg  -f mp4 -vcodec mpeg4 -maxrate 1000k
-b 700k -qmin 3 -qmax 5 -bufsize 4096k -g 300 -acodec libfaac -ab 192k
-s 640x480 -aspect 4:3 THEOUTPUTFILE.mpg

(changing "THEINPUTFILE" and "THEOUTPUTFILE" as apporpriate)
