i have an ipod black 80g, when i try to convert my own music videos using xilisoft ipod video convertor, it doesnt matter what i set it to, it wont play videos just show the first frame and play music, at first i used the older version xilisoft and converted them to 60g hoping it would work but didnt, then i tried the new one Xillisoft 3.1.19.1222b and it still didnt work, has anybody got any idea what programme is best and what conversion will work, or am i doing something wrong in i tunes or ipod itself, any comments would be much appreciated before i lose the rest of my hair.

First of all, I wouldn't use Xilisoft. You should try 3GP Converter (http://ipodlegends.com/free-video-to-ipod-converter/) or Any Video Converter (http://ipodlegends.com/how-to-convert-any-video-type-to-ipod-format/). I have not encountered any problems with them yet. They are both free so give it a try and let me know how it goes
