    I have an MPEG-4 video file of cloverfield that i wanted to put on my iPod but my ipod can't read it apparently, so i clicked "convert selection to ipod/iphone" and it's doing something but the progress bar hasn't filled up even remotely with grey/silver , will iTunes be able to convert this file? Is this extremely long wait normal?

    Well, considering that it's a long movie and a pretty big file, it would take a long time now won't it?

    How long have you waited? I usually just use iTunes converting for small files.

    For big ones, I got to the big boys like VisualHub for Mac or Xvid4PSP for Windows.

    It's 700mb and i've waited 2 hours. It doesn't seem to be doing anything except using a hell of a lot of my cpu.

    Question : Would xvid4psp convert mpeg-4 into mp4?

    Yessir it would. Just open Xvid4PSP, drag the file into Xvid4PSP (Big Black Part). Select MP4 iPod Touch and click Encode, give it a name, and you're off to encoding.

    The File Size will shrink by around... 300 MB also! While retaining the same perfect quality.

    download an iphone specific version next time and you won't have to use a crappy encoder to re-encode it
