    I downloaded an mp4, and uploaded it to my iPod Touch, and it looks like crap - it's all pixelated and runs weirdly. I watched the same vid in VLC and it looks fine. Any ideas on how to fix it?

    iPod Touch, 1st generation 8 GB (jailbroken), 2.2 firmware

    Question. What is the resolution of the video? Can you show it's information? Like, properties and such?
