About the iPod Plug-in
The QuickTime Export Components output format includes an iPod encoder type. This
encoder creates an output file suitable for playing on an iPod, using an H.264 encoder
for the video and an AAC encoder for the audio. All settings (frame size, frame rate, and
so on) are automatically set.
Drawbacks of using this plug-in (as opposed to using the H.264 for Apple Devices output
format) include not being able to take advantage of distributed processing, include
chapter markers, or use the Frame Controls pane.
