I don't think I've seen anyone use their iPod Video and watch Music Videos or Movies. Where I work out 4/10 who own iPod's are Videos and I just find it strange that no one uses it...

Also, is there a case that have neck strap? I tried several stores include Apple and they don't make...again strange that I found one for Nano?

Yes, I very regularly use my iPod Video to watch movies/videos on. I find the screen fine for watching videos, I don't need a widescreen display, as none of the movies/videos I watch are widescreen.

I absolutely use mine to watch videos. I have encoded a whole load of full length movies and TV shows for it. The screen is small but very clear and I used it extensively on a long flight recently. The capacity is the best part as I have an 80GB iPod. I could have got loads more on it if I had only encoded at 320x240 but I have used 640x480 so I can plug it into a TV. Last night we watched a movie with it plugged into an LCD HDTV and the picture was quite reasonable. Not full DVD quality but watchable. I also have a Sony PSP with 1GB memory stick but I don't use it as much as capacity trumps the bigger screen every time.

No. It's like reviewing your stamp collection.

I'll occasionally watch a music video on mine, if I'm bored. I have some TV shows on there that I've never bothered to watch. The screen is too goddamn small.

I do. When I have free time in my uni I watch movies, music videos.

But I mainly just use my iPod for music and file storage ("Other" files take about 28 gigs on mine and the iPod is full at the moment) ;)

Before my ipod broke (my fault, nobody elses), I used it for videos all the time. Especially when using video out through a tv. I currently have 142 TV Shows and 42 movies which i used to rotate onto my ipod, just putting on what i was in the mood to watch and taking off whatever I had watched recently.
