I bought the 8gb Touch because I frankly don't have the extra $100 for the 16gb and if I did, I would just get the iPhone which as well would leave me with 8gb - but not like I really need more room. Anyways, I am going on a cruise in a week and getting a load of movies on my Touch is necessary. I downloaded the program Ultra Video To iPod which is OK and it compresses the video down to 300-400mb range but the quality looks like the video should be about 100mb. I also downloaded Jodix which was very good for my older iPod Video, but when I use it on my iPod Touch, it doesn't make the video fit the whole screen... So after reading my whole ipod conversion story, does anyone have a good program (I don't mind spending a few dollars) which compresses a video so it could save space on my iPod and keeps some decent quality, as well fits the whole 3.5" screen? Edit: Also, what is the conversion mode thing? For Example, is h.246 better than MPEG4? How many KBPS?
