    Onto by Ipod Touch however getting "This movie is damaged and cannot be played".

    I did a "get info" on one of the episodes and obtained the following info:

    Kind- MPEG-4 video file
    Size- 30.8 MB
    Bitrate- 68 kbps
    Profile- low complexity
    Channels- Stereo
    Total bit rate- 199 kbps
    Video Dimensons- 320 x 240
    Video Codec- H.264

    Video plays perfectly on my Quicktime player.

    Am I doing something wrong.

    I've had that error lately on a podcast that I subscribe to. A bunch of them gave that error while others were fine.

    You're probably going to need to convert it. This happened to me too once. Try videora.

    macdog303, I think that as a mod on this forum it's important that you use correct English in your posts. People make enough language mistakes as it is and I think that at least the makers, moderators and other responsible people for a website should try to be as correct as possible. Typos can always happen, but I'm referring to "Your" instead of "You're".

    "You're probably going.."

    No hard feelings!

    I understood him, too, but that's not the point. This new SMS/chat/IM-age seems to bring with it a whole new wave of illiteracy. Or probably more correctly, those who were never really good at writing correctly now write much more publicly and thus "inspire" others who are not so apt at writing to keep (or even start) making mistakes themselves.

    Don't get me wrong, guys. I'm not saying that you're all illiterate. I'm talking more about a general development that seems to be happening.

    Well.. this is a whole topic by itself. I opened a thread for this somewhere on this board.

    Don't worry, I think it's important to mention this, but I won't start b*tching about it.

    I think someone can be illiterate to a certain extent, meaning someone can use slang, mispell things, and etc. As long as I'm able to understand, and identify what he is saying, no big. But unless the guy is like "guyz, hep mee my ipod brokedd and jailbreakk waz screwey! can sumeone help me!" That is deeply exaggerated, but you get the point. (I've actually seen someone post something really similar tho, and I'm sure you guys have too) Anyways it don't matter to me, as long as it is not crossing the line...

    Who are you? The grammar police? This is the second post I've read where you try to correct people on their grammar. First, there are people from all over the world on this forum. Not all of them speak English as their primary language. Second, many people are posting directly from their iPods. And we all know that it's not the easiest device to type on. So there is a lot of truncating. Lastly, who cares? We aren't here to learn correct sentence structure.

    This forum is about fun and learning about the Touch. After re-reading my posts I think I'm being a bit too serious about the whole "correct writing" issue.

    My apologies to those who felt offended! That was not my intention.

    Let's keep Touching!
