    i have a few basic questions that i need to cover. 1. what is the format for videos to be played on my ipod touch? 2. i have a video converter, but its a free trial one. it only converts the first five minutes of a video. is there one that i can use to covert videos?

    i tried to drag and drop from a folder, but that didn't work because windows won't allow it. if a thread like this already exists, redirect me there.

    thanks in advance!

    1. Typically, MP4 & MOV - check out http://www.apple.com/ipodtouch/specs.html
    2. If you're converting from DVD, Handbrake. If you're converting from videos on Windows, grab Videora. If you're converting from videos on Mac, grab iSquint.

    1) The video needs to be in .mp4 or .mov format with h.264 encoding
    2) I like Xilisoft iPod Convert because it can do batch converting pretty quickly (it's for windows, PM me if you need a serial)
