Question about Apple iPod nano

1 Answer

I synced an mp4 video to my ipod nano (my first video) but it doesn't play. The video shows up on the menu, but when I press play, it sometimes only shows a blank screen with the seconds passing by at the bottom. Other times, I click on it and the screen just blinks and nothing happens. Is there something wrong with my ipod or the video? What can I do?

Its most likely that the video you placed on your ipod has different format/type. you need to convert first your video to the appropriate format.
check for the file extension/format of the videos you can view/watch from your ipod! (look for the sample video with its file extension/format)

I cant get a tv show on my ipod nano 4th gen


Not all iTunes video can be transferred to iPod, please make sure your video is compatible with iPod. If the video resolution or video bitrate beyond iPod limitation, even though they are mp4 video, you can't upload them to iPod. For example, some iTunes purchased movie are High definition movie, the resolution is too high to play on iPod, you can't sync it to your iPod. For more information about iPod compatible video, you can visit apple official website.

How to put videos on your iPod Nano/Touch?


Most of us watch YouTube videos, enjoy DVD movies, and do you want to playback these videos on your iPod? iPod touch both looks and operates pretty much like iPhone with the touch-screen, a much better screen for watching videos. The newest iPod nano also supports video with great picture quality. So, you can enjoy movies, TV shows and lots of videos on your iPod touch and iPod nano now, but how to put the videos on iPod nano/touch? And the output videos also can be with great quality? Here, the following guide is to you on how to put videos on iPod nano/touch.

Step 1: Convert to iPod supported videos

Most of the video files are not MP4 formats that can not be directly used on iPod, please make sure the format is compatible with iPod , if not, you should use some video converters to do the conversion, give this iSkysoft ipod movie converter a try, which can convert all various video formats to iPod MP4 formats.


More information please go to http://www.hd-dvd-ripper.net/ipod-movie-converter.html#139
Step 2: Add files to iTunes


Obviously, using iTunes to sync files to iPod is the choice of many iPod users. After converting the videos, Open iTunes and click "File" to add the videos you just converted to iTunes library;


Step 3: Plug in your iPod to computer, then iTunes will detect your iPod as a device.


Step4: Select your iPod device on the left panel of iTunes, click "Movies" tab, check the videos you want to sync and click "Apply", done.

10sec play


try reseting it. then resyncing your ipod. to reset it, simply push the middle button down, and the menu button at the same time. a few seconds later and the ipod should reset. then sync the song that had the problem onto the ipod and see if it works. (no point in syncing all your songs becuase if reseting it doesnt work you wasted alot of time syncing songs for nothing)

best of luck : )

iPod Nano accepts only MP4 format video, please make sure your video is compatible with iPod Nano. If your vide is MP4 video, please follow these steps:
1. Open iTunes and click "File" to add your videos to iTunes library.
2. plug in your iPod Nano to computer, then iTunes will detect your iPod Nano as a device.
3. Select your iPod Nano device on the left panel of iTunes, click "Movies" tab, check the videos you want to sync and click "Apply", done.

If your video isn't MP4 format, you need third party software to convert video to MP4. You may try an iPod converter developed by Aimersoft; it can convert videos to iPod Video and iPod Nano, iPod Touch and iPod Classic with fast conversion speed and excellenrt output quality, that's really good for me, you can have a try, here is its official download link

How do i sync video's to my I-pod


enable an option called "Include Music Videos" in my iPod settings. Apparently, this feature is disabled by default when you update to iTunes v7.

Ipod nano video


At first, iPod nano supports MP4, M4V formats only.
So secondly, you need software to convert videos of other formats to MP4 or M4V. Then use iTunes to sync your iPod nano. I prefer to use Aimersoft Video Converter to do that. I think a step-by-step guide will be helpful. Here is the link:

See videos in ipod nano


you can only get some videos whose format is compatible with your iPod nano, as i know, mp4, mov, are supported by iPod nano, while wmv can not be played on iPod nano. so you'd better convert your video format before you view them on your iPod nano.
here, such program such as any video convert, handbrake,etc. are free but they may have limits or bring some virus. you can try the video converter ultimate, it can help you to convert format easily and effortelessly.
