Ipod Help!

Recommended Posts

Evening all ive just got a new 60GB ipod video upgraded from the mini as it when doolally.

is there any software that allows you to convert videos from phones dvd's etc so i can get them onto my ipod.

or if it can be done via itunes could someone please explain. i cant seem to figure out how to do it, i imagine its going to be a pain is the ***** like the psp unless you download direct from Itunes itself.

having said that even if you do download from itunes you are limited to music vids only.

any advice is appreciated

Not sure myself mate. But I had a thread about Itunes etc problems I was having. People posted links to sites etc to download the software for all these kinds of things.

The thread is Here

hiya mate, do you use a mac or pc?

loads of different software for each one.

if you have a mac, i recommend ffmpegx or isquint to convert files e.g. mpeg or avi files to ipod format.

there's instructions on how to use them.

or try handbrake to rip films from dvds. all of these are free.

or you could just use quicktime as it does it automatically if you already have it.

just have to buy it, but its not much, and is the easier to use!

for pc(windows) my mate said to try these - videora or 3gpp. both are free too.

the latter is more complicated, but once you get the hang of it is miles better(more options etc).

this is a guide for it linky.

here's a guide for using itunes to do it how to.

but wouldn't recommend it as it takes a very long time! :blink:

good luck! :duh:

sam :D

I use DVDCatalyst to rip DVDs for my Palm Lifedrive. For the lifedrive I still need to use the palm software to transfer/format it just right but DVDCatalyst is good for choosing screen resolution, video and audio quality, supports loads of formats etc and gets the files in the right format for the palm software. It has pre-set options for some devices, prob inc iPod.
