    I've got some 720p music videos in mp4. They go into iTunes, and iTunes plays them, but they won't synchronize to my ipod.. Is it messed up, or is it just not possible to play 720p videos on the ipod touch?

    to follow up on the less than helpful post above, the iPod will only play video to certain specifications, if the video is outside these specs then iTunes will not sync the video.

    there are a few apps out there that can easily convert the video to the correct specs.

    I think this is were the Zii EGG comes into play, for more info visit the 3rd Gen iPod section of the forums, there are some discussions about it, looks like a great device, check it out

    You wanna check the discussions on the 3rd gen section before you say "nobody's" gonna buy it, although it may not beat the ipod touch it is getting alot of attention

    Zii EGG's screen has same res as iPod Touch and Zune HD, it wont play on the device but maybe through TV Out


    also, i think that all the Appstore compatible devices have the ability to play HD but it is blocked

    Alright.. What should i use then? i've tried some different things, but they all seem to destroy the video quality.

    I seriously thought you meant TV out...

    Re-encode them to a lower resolution and 128 kbps AAC. Best would be 480 x Whatever - as long as it looks normal.
