    Ok for the longest time the only real way to covnert video is threw the CLI there doenst seem to be anything for Gui. But with a little help of wine it becomes a little easy.

    First you need to install wine

    I like to do it the easy way and kill 2 bird with one stone and install wine doors. A easy .deb install can be found here. Or if you like a little extra help use this ubuntu Howto

    Next we need to download Sic and extract it to where ever you like.

    Then right it in wine. To do this find the sic.exe and right click and use the default open with Wine.

    Then just pick a input and output for the video.

    Then download and load Floola (or what ever you use to move video and music to your Ipod)

    After that go to Item and add and drag in the video.

    the video should now be on your Ipod umount and enjoy...

    Let me know if there is any way to improve this guide.
