Re: ipod classic video playback

Have you tried converting with SUPER (scroll down all the way to the bottom, the download link is one that looks like an advertisement)? It seems like when iTunes converts your original videos it doesn't properly convert\encode the sound. Personally I use SUPER to convert different DivX\XviD files so I can load them on my 30GB iPod video.

Re: ipod classic video playback

How have they been encoded to MP4? If they havent been encoded in a format that is compatible to your type of iPod you will get problems. You could try opening iTunes right click on the MP4 and select "convert selection for iPod", iTunes should then convert it. If it tells you it is already converted I think your problems are with your iPod. Sorry. Also try converting the files to MP4 with something like Handbrake, I have found it good as you can select the output format yourself

Change a DVD format to mp4 or wav so they can be played on a ipod

There is legal way to change the DVD format to other video format. That is to use DVD Ripper Software which can convert DVDs to some other video format for playback on some portable media players including iPod, Zune, iPhone, Walkman, BlackBerry, etc. And I am now using Wondershare DVD Ripper Platinum which is very easy to use. For converting a DVD to iPod MP4 video, it usually takes about 30 munitues. If you want to have a try, you can free download this DVD Riiper at:
Hope that helps.

Can't load video onto my classic

I am not to sure exactly why you would be using QT for your ipod.
You need to upload only compatible video files to your iPod or they will not play and in most case will not even transfer to your iPod.
The iPod will not play a quicktime file or .mov, you need to search the net for a converter that can convert your file to .mpg and your videos will upload and play.
Also, you cannot transfer video directly from your quicktime program
you need to use iTunes and either sync them or manually load the vids to you ipod.

Can't load music without deleting existing materials

I'm sorry, but there is no way around that without starting over. This means that the two laptops have different operating system and you will have to restore your ipod if you want it to work with your computer.

Classic Ipod video playback problem

This is a response to all thoes with the problem of ipod videos stopping randomly and acting as though the video had ended. (please excuse any spelling or grammer errors that may be involved in this post)
I have reciently noticed alot of topics on this and other sites that had issues with the video on the ipod. After syncing a video that is a proper mp4 format, it seemed to work fine, it even began to play but after one or less minutes the video would stop playing and act as though it was finished and had reached it's end. It would happen at the exact same point every time and you could fast foreward past it and it would continue playing, only to find the problem in another spot a few minutes later. I had this problem with each and every video that I synced and could not play any of them, this problem irritated me and as I found out alot of others who had the same problem. I could find no solution that had yet been found after searching many sites that involve help with the ipod. After some research I soon found and solved my problem. The problem is that the ipod will only accept videos that have a video bitrate of less than 768 kbps. This is what causes our problem as stated above. This would mean that 512kbps would be the ideal for watching videos. (every video that had a video bitrate of 512 kbps (or lower) always worked and had no issues whatsoever) Only a few 768 kbps videos will work and some of them will not. So to fix the problem you need to find somthing that will reformat your video to a video bitrate of 512 kbps or lower. The current one that I use is called "Jodix free ipod video converter", this will change your favorite non mp4 videos into mp4s and just be sure to set the video bitrate on the converter to 512kbps or lower. Also use this program to change your already mp4s into a video bitrate of 512kbps or lower. (Just be sure to set the video bitrate to 512kbps or less by sliding the bar to lower quality for video.) This should make your videos continue playing for full enjoyment of your ipod. (with video) Please respond with any and all questions. Thank you for your time, I hope this is useful and solves the problem. Sorry for being long winded with my answers, I do this to ensure full understanding of my explination. /\/icho.
