Question about Apple iPod MA446LL/A MP3 Player
Same problem as flash's
So when you're watching a movie it suddenly stops and skips back to the menu? If so, try deleting the movie from the iPod and re-copying it over. If this doesn't work, try restoring your iPod (note: this will delete all music\videos you currently have on the iPod).

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.
