Is it an ipod video you have ?

The iPod Touch is a multimedia player made by Apple, with a 3.5-inch touch-sensitive display and a built-in speaker, which makes it suitable for watching videos on the go. The device connects to the Internet via Wi-Fi, allowing you to download videos from Apple's iTunes Store, and stream videos from video-sharing websites like YouTube or movies from sites like Amazon or Netflix. You can also shoot videos with the iPod Touch's two built-in cameras.

Tap the Photos app icon on the Home screen to watch a video you shot with your iPod Touch's camera. Tap "Camera Roll." Thumbnail images of pictures and videos you shot appear on the screen. Video thumbnails have a video camera icon. Tap the thumbnail of a video to open it, then press the "Play" button to start playing it. Press the "Home" button to return to the device's home screen when you're finished watching a video. Launch the YouTube app from the Home screen to watch YouTube videos. Tap "Featured" to see a list of videos being promoted by YouTube, or tap "Most Viewed" to see a list of popular videos. Tap "Search," then type a search term, and then tap "Search" to look for videos. Tap the thumbnail of a video to start playing it. Touch the Videos app icon on the home screen to watch videos you downloaded from Apple's iTunes Store. A list of videos appears. Tap the thumbnail of a video to start playing it. Hope this helps.
