    Hey -- so it's my first post here...I tried looking through the stickies on this forum, nothing that helps me out, so...

    I recently got an iPod Touch and want to download some movies onto it. Since everything has to go through iTunes...and iTunes apparently can't read .mpg or .avi movies, is there a suitable workaround to this dilemma?

    Thanks, mac

    Yep, convert movies in to MPEG-4 format (MP4), then iPod an iTunes will recognize them.

    Convert the movies to the proper format (MP4). Check my signature for more details.
