    I bought a first gen I-touch with the primary intended use of watching movies. I've about pulled my hair out trying to get used to I-tunes. I'm used to an off brand MP3 player that allows me to just drag and drop music files from "My Music" to the unit.
    If I jailbreak the Itouch will I be able to do this on it? Also, any suggestions for ripping dvds into an MP4 format so I can watch them on the I-touch?

    atomicmufin would hate you.
    and just use iTunes and get used to it.

    Handbrake is good for encoding movies into MP4.

    I really thought that was what it was called.

    Thanks on the handbrake tip, I've looked it over and I'll give it a try.

    Haha don't worry about it, use whatever terms you want (doesn't bother me, I still know what you're talking about).

    Handbrake is an awesome piece of software imo!
    But also quicktime is. If you have a licence for it, you can just open up your video and hit export for iPod/iPhone and you're all set.
