    Let's say I took a bunch of videos on my Nano. I want to edit them on an iPod Touch 4G with iMovie. Any way to get them onto the iPod Touch so I can use them?

    Cheers!

    i doubt it, considering when you load videos onto the iPod from a computer it will put them in the videos app instead of the camera roll which is the only source i know of that iMovie pulls video from.

    Sync the videos from your nano on your computer, then sync your touch with iTunes, and you can select photos/videos from your computer you want on your touch in iTunes

    That adds it to the videos app, not the Camera Roll.

    I just tried this - it didn't work (I even tried a video shot from the iPod touch itself). A reboot didn't help either. Hopefully Apple will update iMovie.

    Xfer Videos

    The App Xfer Videos does put them back into your camera roll. I can now shoot videos with my canon t2i and save them on my computer, have itunes convert the video to a smaller size and using xfer Video's wifi app put them directly into my ipod 4g camera roll and edit away.

    I have tested and confirmed this works like a charm.

    You can email the video to yourself and it will save it to the camera roll that way.
