    Default IPOD help

    I have an IPOD that can play Audio (Music) and Video files. I have been very successful loading audio files on my Ipod. I have a few music videos on my computer in “MP3” format.

    How can I convert these files to get them on my Ipod?

    Thank-you

    I've never used an IPOD so I can't offer any assistance with this. The link below may be helpful.

    Bear,

    thank-you for your help. The Apple web site wants me to purchase the videos using there Itunes web site. I already have the videos I want, but they are in MP3 format.

    Maybe someone else has a suggestion.

    Thanks anyway,

    Lance

    Maybe able to convert them by buying Quicktime Pro:

    http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=301461

    About half way down the page, is says:

    "Other video sources
    Videos that were not purchased from the iTunes Music Store are typically not in a format that is playable on the iPod, but in many cases, they can be converted to the correct format using iTunes 6.0.2 or later or with QuickTime 7 Pro. To convert your movie to a compatible format follow one of the procedures below:

    Converting movies to iPod in iTunes 6.0.2 or later
    Creating Video for iPod tutorial using QuickTime 7 Pro
    If you're using a Mac with QuickTime 7.0.4 or later installed, you can use iMovie and other applications to export a movie to a format supported by the iPod and then add it your iTunes Library. Click here for an iMovie HD tutorial."

    Please don't ask us to try and bypass this, as that is hacking/cracking. Many things are free and some are not.

    I've never seen a video file in the MP3 format, MP3 is an audio extension as far as I know.

    I made a mistake. I meant MP3 format.

    Thanks for pointing it out.
