    With RockBox can you play movies on an ipod that doesn't normally support videos?

    If you can, how?

    Basically you can dual boot a completely different firmware other than the iPod firmware. The firmware was written from scratch and has support for plugins, one of which is Mpegplayer.

    I had it on my old 1G nano, video playback was pretty smooth on it.

    It comes in the stock rockbox installation, you just have to put a video file on the device. When you navigate to that file, it simply just opens with that plugin.
