Nope - the bottleneck is the graphic hardware. 640x480 will never be possible. Something between qvga and vga would be - this should be tested.
I'm not even sure about that. in practical terms vga is a decent format to store video. BUT for small screen limited storage devices qvga is just fine. Qvga looks good on my 4"-3.7" screens and a movie crunches down to @200 megs in decently encoded qvga.
Qvga scales up to small tv screens ok..looks ok in a window--is fairly standard and easy to manipulate. I'm really not sure there is a benefit to going with sideways movies or weird resolutions. Further, trying to do smalll files in vga means artifacting, data loss, low sound quality, etc--or comparatively huge files (600-700meg) not good tradeoffs. An overly compressed vga video looks worse than a nicely done qvga video, imho. My personal solution is to make "big" vga files for my desktop, and crunche'm into qvga with avidemux2 for my zaurus.
