    He's worked out a Handbrake preset for ripping video for his Xoom, and shared it with the world.

    Thanks Chris if you're looking

    It depends on the file. I did a lot of testing and found some great settings that have no skipping at all.

    I recently encoded a handfull of movies for my Xoom, one being the new Tron Legacy movie.

    I re-encoded a 1080p mkv file

    these are the settings I used

    Picture Settings:

    Anamorphic: strict

    Filters:
    Decomb - default
    Detelecine - default

    Target size: 3900 (since the xoom can't handle files larger than 4gb)

    Audio tab: remove all but one channel since you don't need multiple streams

    Advanced:
    Referenced Frames - Default (3)
    Maximum B-Frames - 0
    CABAC Entropy Coding: unchecked
    8x8 transform: unchecked
    weighted p-frames: unchecked

    option string should be: 8x8dct=0:bframes=0:cabac=0:weightp=0

    screenshots are...

    If you use the exported hb settings make sure you still modify the picture settings as its not stored in the preset.
