Since I've had my iTouch, I find myself watching movies on it more than a DVD player. I can watch a movie, watch a sporting event (mostly hockey) and not miss anything. I use this as my primary dvd player now because it is what "I" want to watch without the hassle of setup, kids or dogs (Great Danes make better doors than windows) running in front of the TV. Just wondering?????

Movies not so often although i have a couple loaded , my problem is that i live in Spain and i have to rip my CDs by my own and with a g4 ibook takes an entire night ( hope to get movie rentals in itunes sometime before end of the century over here ) , most of the time i watch podcasts and youtube which is really fun .

The screen resolution is way better than my normal tv :D

I only watch YouTube clips and QuickTime movie trailers. I cannot fathom watching an entire film on anything smaller than a laptop computer.

How do you get these off the tv?

I've watched 2 movies on my iPod Touch so far. During 1 of them, for some reason the movie suddenly stopped and the movie app went back to the screen where you choose which movie you want to watch. It done this twice, any idea why?

Did you burn/convert them or buy them?
I have bought 5 movies and burned/converted 5. I had trouble only once on the one I converted.

Watched a couple of cooking shows on the plane the other night. Then listened to a couple of podcasts after that.

I love the Touch - the ultimate "all in one" PDA / entertainment device!! The interface continues to blow me away every time I wake it from sleep.

virtually never. i suppose if i were on a plane often - but even then i prefer to read ebooks instead. movies... arm gets cramped and then i watch and realise why i hate movies - but yeah, they look alright but im quite sure the screen is only 262k - no smooth transitions between colours.

I watch movies while doing cardio at the gym. I typically watch 30 minutes at a shot, and before the week is over I've finished the movie.

I also have bought some of the Fuel TV shows, mostly First Hand.

I have found that limiting my TV watching to my iPod Touch while at the gym has both decreased my TV watching and increasing my gym going.

I gotta agree, I'm a movie junkie as well and thats why I really don't like the whole rent movies. Its good for others but for me, I like to buy them because I know I'll be watching them over and over. I won't buy it from iTunes though, freakin expensive for just a digital movie, I'll go with DVD and just convert it myself for a digital backup copy. Besides, digital library looks cool with the coverflow instead of my DVD library on my shelf.

Almost never when I'm in America, but when I'm over in Germany I like to watch movies on the train commute. That's about 60% of my life spent over there, so I watch stuff a lot.

I use it to watch Video podcasts quite often, and have taken to loading up older movies that I keep meaning to watch but never get around to. Just watched "The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp" and "Helvetica", for example.

I am new to the itouch world and having trouble downloading movies and podcasts. I show a podcast on my computer, but it won't sync to my i touch. I updated the itunes and it still won't work. Can you watch movies downloaded directly from itunes or how do I get movies on my touch?
help! so lost...
Thanks

I actually use mine alot. When I have to sit in the backseat for example. :) Or when I don't feel like opening up my laptop. I only have about 10 movies on mine so there isn't alot of selection. But its convenient, especially if I'm waiting somewhere for a long time and i might have to get up and go in a hurry, eg airports, waiting in line. But then I watch alot of shows on my ipod.

I am loving the touch more and more as my video player. Viewing TV shows and movies is great, but now with MxTube I download a couple of my favorite youtube shows and when I have some free time, I'll mostly watch some episodes of Foamy. I love how its the iTune store for youtube videos :D.
