Re: video ipod....[Solved]

I haven't tried this, but I've read it can be done via amarok if you browse to the file and chose to add it to your playlist.  Supposedly gtkpod can do a better job at this, but may require some recompiling.  I don't use gtk pod, and I don't have an iPod video so I can't confirm either scenario.  Kind of useless, I realise, but it's what I've got.

Re: video ipod....[Solved]

I had to search forums for a clue you have to change file format to .mov

Yes you are right gtkpod should do the trick ;-)

No I would not have bought an iPod but tried three other mplayers all good but they did not like Linux lol

reminds me to change thread title to solved

Thanks again

You shouldn't have to change the file extension - I've created a few dozen mp4s for my wife's ipod, and they all work fine with that extension.  Obviously .movs work too, but you'd need to encode them as quicktime files - I think x264 does this, but I have had limited success with ffmpeg and x264.  Avi is no good, though.
