Hi Neil

cheers for the offer of the phone lend - maybe I'll take you up on that 
another time :-)

I saw the android presets but they seem pretty much the same as except 
for the framerate being changed from 'same as source' to a specific peak 
framerate '(29.97 (NTSC Video)' + plus a RF value of 22 rather than 20 
in the costant quality section.

I dont want to encode a version for ios and android.

although - I'll try the android preset just to see what happens.
