I'm curious as to what software people like to use to convert video to compatible formats and resolution for their Windows Phone.
In the past when I had an iPhone, I always used Handbrake. Handbrake works fine for my Windows Phone too but I was just curious if anyone had any other favorite programs or presets that they really liked.

Yes, Windows Live Movie Maker will browse for my mostly .m2ts/avchd, or .MOV files with one click, then I select and automatically open the file with another. I can save-as in two WP formats, or a ZuneHD 720p one, with a menu, and another click will convert-as-it-saves the file in your My Videos folder -I have sub-folders for my Focus and my Zune HD. Easy, as enahs555 says.
I haven't tried and can't compare it to Handbrake, but the funtionality and integration of WLMM works very well for me. Give it a try and enjoy comparing it yourself.Every choice involves compromising...

Yup tversity and mymedia has been my way as well. Handbrake is not as simple as click and go, but there are some good tutorials on the best settings. Best part is that it can go straight from DVD, pretty sure WLMM can not do that.

After a few weeks of converting videos I thought I'd just add that between Windows Live Movie Maker and Handbrake, Handbrake is the clear winner.
The end result of Handbrake was a smaller movie created in less time compared to the same movie being converted in WLMM. Visually the both look the same on my phone too. So for that reason, plus the queue in Handbrake, I believe that is my "go to" choice now.

I was just doing a training for this and will probably check it out. I didn't know about all the features until reading it.

Heh, I just let Zune do it automatically, might be faster to do it all manually but it's not let me down yet and I normally keep the phone near the PC anyway.
Perhaps there are unsupported file types that it cannot convert though, I've not found any yet.
