    Hey guys, playing with my iPod touch and I have all the episodes of The Big Bang Theory on my computer, which I want on my iPod.

    I need a video converter that converts to MPEG-4

    The files I have are all in AVI but I don't think that matters.

    If anyone has anything I'd appreciate it!

    I'm sorry?

    Ok, i'll search it? lol Thanks.

    I tried Free Zune Vid Converter, but when I converted it to MPEG-4 and tried to drag it to video's on my iTunes it said it won't play on this iPod.
    But I have 4 movies in MPEG 4 format on there already.

    hmm.

    I second this.
    Handbrake is what I use for converting videos for my ipod touch (gen2) and it works brilliantly. Free too, so what more could you want:toast:

    Hi there,
    I'm using this program called Prism, since I've got my iPod video a couple of years ago.
    It's very fast, compared to several other programs I've tried. You can try it here:

    Hey there bud, I've used handbrake and from what I remember handbrake is good for converting a dvd folder i.e. into mp4 files, there's a little program called WinFF which is really good if you are looking to queue a couple of files to convert.

    First add your files, then pick convert to ipod and w/e format you want.

    BTW if you are using vista make sure you run as administrator otherwise it wont be able to write to the output directory.
