View Full Version : Can't see videos on ipod

Jan 13, 2007, 06:33 AM
I have a problem with videos that I'm sure must be reeeeeally simple but I can't figure it out. I can sync video podcasts and movies to my 30GB ipod fine but I can't get them to play properly. When I ask them to play they act like a song - as in I can hear the sound of the movie but all I can see is the name of the movie and the artwork but not the movie itself. I'm sure it must just be a setting that I have wrong. Any ideas?

iPod plays audio but not video of movies

If the audio for movies plays through the headphones and you see "Now Playing" on the iPod screen with a progress bar, but the video does not appear on the iPod screen, then you may have the TV Out video setting turned on.

To change your TV Out setting so you can view video with your sound:

1. Navigate on your iPod to Videos > Video Settings
2. Select TV Out to set it to Off or Ask.

If the issue continues, make sure you are accessing the video through the Videos menu. If you have a video mixed in an audio playlist, you also won't be able to see the video.
