Video on the new Nano

I just bought a new iPod Nano.
I put a video of The Office that I actually didn't download from the iTunes Store but which works perfectly on iTunes.
However, I'm encounting some problem when watching it on my iPod. The video keeps shutting down after 20sec or so.
Can it be a kind of security Apple built to only allow iTunes content to be viewed ?
Thanks for your help.

What format is it in? It might be a format that the iPod can't play. If it isn't MPEG-4 or H.264, highlight the video, and from iTunes' 'Advanced' menu, and select 'Convert for iPod'. That should make it work.

Thank you for the response.
I checked it but it's well in MPEG-4.
On the computer everything's fine but once I try to watch it on the iPod it just stops after a while and go back to the video's menu.

Could be a problem with your Nano - my Wife's got a Nano and I've got a classic and they both play video ripped from DVD with no problem at all. When it stops, does it give any errors? Have you tried copying it across again - it could be that only part of the file copied across so when its stopping it's because that's all the video on the device.
