    my questions :

    Video related:
    i have many video files ( divx format, xvid format ), usually i download them from *******, you know, the AXXO ripped movie, also some Japanese anime, all of them is on divx/xvid format. Can i play them on ipod touch G2 ?
    i heard, need to have some converter, is it free ? where can i donwload them ?

    Jailbreak related:
    where can i find information for jailbreak basic ? i know nothing bout it. does jailbreak have anything to do with using an application (games) ? If jailbreak, do i still need to buy apps from apps store ?

    Many thanks.
    Fer

    video: you can't play native video files on ipod touch. use videora ipod converter(there are many out there) and convert to .mov or .mpeg

    jailbreak: research winpwn or quickpwn. however, the 2ng gen touch hasn't been jailbroken yet. Jailbreaking lets you use unofficial apps not certified by apple like dtunes, a free itunes music downloader and player right on your ipod, and mxtube, a free youtube downloader and player. there are also themes and skins you can get. I probably shouldn't be saying this on this forum, but you can also get c****** appstore apps when you jailbreak. Mods, I'm stating a FACT, NOT instructions.

    i understand what you mean on jailbreak, let me do some research on winpwn/quickpwn.

    videora ipod converter, i'll check it first.

    But for your experience, have anyone try to play converted ripped movie or converted anime file on Ipod Touch ?

    many thanks

    Even youtube clips can look great on the touch

    You add the videos to itunes and then set the sync options to ensure the movie is synced to the touch.
