Re: iPod classic video

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).

SOURCE: 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.

Ipod classic shows no songs or videos

I think the problem your having is that Apple has once again resisted support for anything but i-Tunes and changed the way the database works. Amarok or whatever else is trying to write a database that is probably just in a different place on the IPod itself. I would think yoiu just need to give it some time for someone to write a new ipod driver.

Cannot download music videos to ipod nano classic

hi, buddy
First, you need to ensure ur video is in ipod-friendly format MPEG4(MP4), M4V... if not, you can use iTunes to convert them...

Next, use iTunes to sync them to ur iPod. If you wanna more convenient, you could download this iPod manager tool - Daniusoft iPod transfer :

1. Backup videos/songs from computer to iPod directly ;
2. Transfer iPod files to computer smoothly ;
3. Transfer iPod video/music to iTunes .

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.

The flashing Apple is the equivalent of Microsofts blue screen of death. This apple symbol means hardware failure. Not good. Do a Google search for flashing apple of death. Here's a video that should help you fix it yourself. Hope this helped.
