10 Handbrake had some settings that allowed me to target different file
11 sizes. I tried both 700MB and 300MB. Both worked. The 300MB version
12 was noticeably splotchy on backgrounds when displayed full screen on a
13 1920x1280 monitor, but not so much when sized to about the size of the
14 Kindle Fire.
