Converting Videos to Work on iPod

Advertisement
November 30

I loaded some videos into my library, right clicked them and selected to "convert for iPod", it did... something. I thought it had converted them so they would work and play, or show at all, on my iPod. They are not still. I'm at a total loss what to do?! Can anyone reccommend a third party software so I can convert the files themselves into .mov or .mp4? Thanks.

Since you have not provied specific information regarding your particular problem, there are two possibilities. The first is that your source files are not QT compatible and the second is that the content of your files are too complex to be handled in their current form.
iTunes conversions are based on "frame-to-frame" sync QT routines. "Muxed" formats (e.g., MPEG1, MPEG2, VOB, some AVI, MJPEG, etc.) use blocks of audio data interspersed with blocks of video data to maintain A/V synchronization. Therefore, the iTunes converter will only correctly convert non-muxed, QT compatible files.
Then too the iTunes converter employs a highly efficient but very complex multi-pass H.264/AAC codec which can be very content sensitive. Brightnes, contrast, saturation, and the amount/frequency of action sequences can all effect conversions. Older movies and videos can be particularly troublesome. In this case, switching to a single-pass conversion can fix the problem. In more severe cases, use of software filters can alleviate the problem.
