If you're transporting the media to play on someone else's screen then
it's not the same as watching it on a plane, train or automobile, is
it? In that case you're not going to be watching it at all and you're
using your phone as a glorified storage device.

The iPhone/Touch/Pod only supports 480/576p max on component output.
Maybe you have some new device from the future :-).

It would be easier to drop the movie on a USB stick and plug that in
to your friend's HTPC... you could even get HD.
