    not sure if its my touch or if its the video itself, i seem to have a prob while viewing them. Certain video podcasts are ok, but some will juz stop halfway and bring me back to the video list menu. Ive even redownloaded the podcast from itunes

    Im using a 1.1.1 jailbreaked touch

    Not all iTunes video podcasts are playable on the iPod. Some require an additional conversion step to iPod format. Such converted files will then show up in the movies folder.

    Typically, if a video does not meet iPod specs, iTunes won't let it sync to the iPod. The file you are trying to copy may be corrupted. Have you tried playing the whole video on iTunes just to check?

    I have the problem that my video podcasts can sync, but only the audio plays. How would I be able to convert them in order for my touch to play them?

    EDIT: I solved my probelm. I had to view them through the video app, not the podcast section of the music app. Silly mistake on my part I guess.
