    Hi guys, I'm no hacker so i found another (twisted) way around my problem :

    Let's say I want to add a downloaded mp4 (downloaded with the ipod and within safari, using the plugin) to the library to be able to watch it through regular ipod video player...

    Copy it (with finder) and paste it in theMedia/iTunes_Control/F(whatever folder), AND rename it to an mp4 that's already in the folder (replace it).
    Example : in the F00 folder you have BNFP.mp4 (one of your Seinfeld videos added with iTunes...). Paste the downloaded and copied file there and rename it BNFP.mp4 (backup the original).
    In your ipod video player, the video will be there ready to be played BUT under the old Seinfeld thumbnail. Hunt and play
