What video content works with iTunes and iPod?
iTunes:
Video content purchased from the iTunes Music Store.
QuickTime and MPEG-4 movie files that end in ".mov", ".m4v", or ".mp4" and are playable in QuickTime Player.
Video podcasts.
iPod:
Video content purchased from the iTunes Music Store.
Videos that have been converted for iPod with QuickTime 7 Pro using the Creating Video for iPod tutorial.
Videos that have been converted for iPod with iMovie, Final Cut Pro, and others. Click here for an iMovie HD tutorial.
Video Podcasts that have been converted for iPod

Does the video need to be encoded in a special way?
iPod can play the following video formats:

H.264
File formats: .m4v, .mp4, and .mov
Video: Up to 768 kbits/sec, 320 x 240, 30 frames per second (fps), Baseline Profile up to Level 1.3.
Audio: AAC-LC up to 160 kbits/sec, 48 Khz, and stereo audio.

MPEG-4
File formats: .m4v, .mp4, and .mov
Video: Up to 2.5 Mbits/sec, 480 x 480, 30 fps, Simple Profile.
Audio: AAC-LC up to 160 kbits/sec, 48 Khz, stereo audio.

Check the file you have is within their spec for import to the iPod

You must convert your mpg video to one of those formats first.

Hello,

There is a free encoding program that users seem to like here that can take most video formats and encode to the proper format to work on a video iPod. The Program is "Videora Ipod Converter" and the link is below:

http://www.videora.c...Converter/iPod/

The program appears very easy to use and looks to have a bice GUI.

Cheers,
Tom

theres a good program called PQ DVD to iPod Video, you could try downloading a trial version of that to convert your video files to the right format, but it does take a while depending on the file, also i wouldnt recommend doing too many things at once while your converting, just begin the convert and leave your computer for half hour to an hour and see how everything goes

i'm having a similar problem. i downloaded the videora converter and i used it to convert my videos from .avi format (i think) and some from .mov format to .mp4 format. Then in itunes i click file, then add file to library, and then i click on one of the converted videos and nothing happens...it won't add the converted video to itunes. i've also tried dragging and adding the entire folder, but nothing happens :tazz:
So how do I add the converted .mp4 format videos to my itunes library and then to my ipod?


also, i have some videos in quicktime format (i think .mov) that were uploaded videos from my regular digital camera (uploaded off of a picture card into quicktime format). Those will import to itunes but they won't transfer to my video ipod, i get an error message that says that they aren't in the right format for my ipod to read.

can you help me get all of my videos first onto itunes and then onto my ipod? thanks!

It seems Quick Time Pro is the solution to this, though you can get a trial version of another converter here
