    Ok, my girlfriend has an ipod touch, 1st gen, and she downloaded some episodes of a show she likes, and wants to watch them on her ipod touch. It gives her some sort of error, and says it cant play videos or something on it. She doesnt have the latest OS for her Ipod touch since 1st gen has to pay to get it, where 2nd and 3rd gen get it free.

    My question is, would upgrade the OS solve the problem or is it something else? Also, would Jailbreaking the phone (since that is legal now) get her to watch videos on her ipod, but without having to pay?

    Help a BF help his GF out here!

    It should be .mp4 so it's good to play. Did she download the HD copy?

    It is a HD episode and I am not quite sure what kind of format it is in.

    That would be her. So it is HD copy, what does that mean she needs to do?

    You can't play HD video on your iPod. When you downloaded it. It should have came with a SD file. If you don't have it check for available downloads on iTunes. It'll download it. Hopefully.
