View Full Version : Help: Ipod Video Classic; Audio but no video

May 23, 2008, 07:11 PM

I apologise, for some reason the TV out was 'on' and i switched it to 'off' ...

For some reason this fixed the problem. Sorry for the useless thread.


After an hour or so googling i have not gained any insight into my problem;

When i am using my ipod and i go

Ipod > Videos > Movies > "Movie"

Only audio plays, a still thumbnail image is displayed and the track timer also.

I realise there is a problem where if i were to go through the video podcast route this is meant to happen to conserve batter life however i do not think this applies. I would like to obviously resolve this issue and get back to watching things on my ipod. The movies i have on my ipod play fine in Itunes and i have converted them to the prefered .mp4 format.

Any input is much apreciated.

Also if anyway other infomation is required to aide in solving the problem i will ofc give it.

Thankyou in advance,

Yes when it's set to ON it output video and when you set it OFF it will play on the iPod itself.
