space on your PC's hard drive by using Beyond TV's ShowSqueeze™ feature
to convert your native MPEG-2 Beyond TV recordings into H.264 format.
H.264 videos are smaller in file size when compared to standard
MPEG-2 video files.

converting to H.264, you are able to choose a predefined iPod, iPhone
or Apple TV profile which will prepare your recordings for syncing
to those devices. Or you can create your own profile, with a bitrate
of your choice.
