    Okay well I just recently realized that I was lacking some videos on my JB'd iTouch 2g 3.0 FW. So I went around online and tried to directly download some anime but when I tried playing it in dTunes, it came up with a message saying the video format is not supported. That same message has popped up before so I just ignored and instead tried downloading the videos from my comp and synching them to my touch. So I went through and downloaded 5 eps of Soul Eater and 1 of FMAB. My itunes is set so I should be allowed to drag and drop my media onto my touch but it said that the video could not be played on this device so i tried synching it the ol fashion way but it then came up with 6 errors saying the videos could not be copied onto my ipod. So now I can't seem to play or PUT any videos onto my iPod. It used to work fine before I bumped my firmware to 3.0 that's when disaster happened. So is something wrong with my Touch being JB'd or 3.0 or what? Help would be greatly appreciated

    By typing do you mean just changing the file extension? You need to convert the file all over again completely. Not change extensions. Use HandBrake.

    handbrake is a converter for the comp so u can simply convert ur vids on the comp and then transfer them........if u can add these videos in itunes u can try right clicking on them and trying to select "convert to ipod/iphone format"

    You need to convert your videos to m4v.

    I use Videora to convert my movies. Very simple to use.

    There may be better converting programs out there but as I said it's very simple to use
