iPod Video Converter

Postby go_jays_go » Sun Dec 25, 2005 11:13 pm

This christmas I recieved a iPod video. I spent half of my morning trying to figure out how to convert the videos to the right type of file. I finally found the right site and program, so I thought I would share just incase some other iPod owners needed some help like I did.

http://www.videora.com/en-us/Converter/iPod/

It's got turtorials on there and everything. Hopefully it helps you out with your conversions.

Merry Christmas. :-)

Yeah, theres some tutorials on there about DVD decrypting also, but I haven't tried it yet.

But you can't just rip straight from the DVD to the IPod video machine using the IPod software?

I'm not totally sure, but I don't think you can. The DVD files must be MPEG-4 format to be used on the iPod, I believe. My understanding is that you must decrypt the DVD file so it is an MPEG-4 before putting it on your iPod.

A good site I found for questions like these is http://www.ilounge.com if you go to the TV/Video forum, they should have answers to that. Though I'm pretty sure you can't just put it on straight from the DVD. I guess it's iPod way of making money to buy the converted files. :-/

However, it may be possible. I'm not entirely sure.

if it's the h.264 (mpeg-4) format then you will need to convert it from mpeg 2 anyway because that's what dvd's are in.
