Oerwinde Posted October 25, 2006 Share Posted October 25, 2006 (edited) So I've been wanting one of those 30GB+ iPods for a while now so I can store my Cartoons on it and watch them on the bus to work and such. Well someone at work got one and me being the most computer literate person in the store, she gave it to me to put some videos on. So the first thing I think of to put on is my cartoons. I have the first 4 seasons of the new TMNT, so I figured I could just pop those onto the iPod. Nope, can't just drag and drop. Have to download iTunes. Download iTunes, now my quicktime videos are all screechy and the sound gives out entirely like 20-30 seconds in. Anyway, go into iTunes and try to import my TMNT episodes. SURPRISE! iTunes doesn't recognize .AVI files, the most common video format on the internet! But it does recognize the Global Frequency pilot that I have in MPEG format. So I click on that to send it to the iPod. YAY! DOESN'T WORK. I need to convert it to an iPod proprietary format before I can send it to the iPod! So instead I figure, I have the trailer for Pan's Labyrinth in Quicktime format that I'll just send right over. Nope. Have to convert that too. So I give that a try. The trailer is 2 minutes 33 seconds long... takes 20 minutes to convert. So you spend 300 bucks on an ipod to watch videos on, and it takes you 3 hours just to get a single episode of a TV show on there? Not worth it. I think I'll suggest she take it back tomorrow. Since the main reason she got it was to play videos. If she wants an ipod its better to pay 150 for a Nano instead of 300 for this garbage.
