Compress H.264 in dimensions divisible by 16

For the iPodPhonePad and other mobile devices. Good overview article from the Adobe Developer Connection here (Note the error in their table. See corrected table below).

It’s all about the hardware acceleration

We love hardware acceleration. Hardware acceleration is why a $40 DVD player from Walmart plays DVDs perfectly and a $1500 computer plays them poorly.

Use these resolutions to support hardware acceleration:

4:3 16:9
640 × 480 640* × 360
512 × 384 512 × 288
480 × 360 480 × 272

*there’s a typo in this table in the article. The correct value is 640 x 360, not 480 x 360.
