Articles, pronouns, auxiliary verbs
and prepositions are often left out.
For example:
“am in a meeting @ the mo” means “I am in a meeting at the
moment.”
“should arrive Tues” means “I should arrive on Tuesday.”
“u gonna come with us?” means “Are you going to come
with us?”

I got myself a PIMP xda Graphite Smartphone the other day.

It's fantastic for watching videos on in full screen, however all my
videos are like 50+ MB and some big resolution which really isn't
necessary on the phone.

I've used media player movie maker to compress squince's 6th
vid and using the default setting for windows pocket PC
(fullscreen 218Kbs) gives a resolution of 320x240 and keep the
audio quality nice too.

Is there any other software out there which can do what im after
in a smaller package than WMM? It's such hassle having to import
the vid first and then save it as a movie again.

I tried the nokia multimedia convertor but it broke the aspect
ratio and won't work in full screen...
Example
Krisboats: “You'll be wanting a program called M3 made by
someone called mysh. Its the best at changing ratios for phones.
Super easy to use, only quite hard to track down.
 If you add me to msn i can send you the 8mb installer for it. I
can't seem to find a link to a current host anywhere on the
internet”
