    I have a bunch of movies in avi, divx and xvid formats. Is there a good program out there that can convert them for the Ipod Touch. I have windows XP OS.

    Will MP4 movies converted for the PSP work on the Touch.?

    Thanks.

    I've heard Videora talked about, but I cannot vouch for it personally. On the Mac, VisualHub and iSquint are the de facto standards.

    ImToo makes a fairly simple video converter for Ipods

    I am using Videora on my iPod 5th gen. There is a selection for iPod Touch when converting the video to make the best quality for certain devices.

    I like it. It works well. I am recording TV using my PC, then converting it to iPod format. Works great! I have 2 movies I have done so far. Converting takes a bit of time (2 hour movie takes about 1 to 1 1/2 hours) to convert. But it works great if you don't mind waiting.

    Oh and Videora is free. You can donate to them if you like the software!

    thanks guys.

    I tried using Videora yesterday but I'm trying to find something that can keep the movies around 450mb. When using videora it'll show my movie before conversion with certain settings that it will come out t be 400mb. but when it is finished it is usually 850mb.

    I use eRightSoft's SUPER (http://www.erightsoft.com/SUPER.html), but I highly doubt it has any endorsements or licenses for them to keep it legitimately free to download.

    With that caveat, SUPER is great for converting videos easily to MP4, and allows you to select Profiles (e.g. iPod/iPod 5.5/PSP/etc), containers (e.g. AVI/MP4/MKV/etc) and codecs (DIVX/AVC/MP4/etc), as well as resolution/bitrate/ratios for each Profile.

    It basically converts videos of almost any format into almost any other format.

    [Note: If SUPER is in any way illegal, please remove post.]

    If all you are worried about is converting from one file to another there is a site called media-convert.com if you go there you can upload the file and choose an output and it will convert it for you. It is really good and i have used it for many video conversions.

    Who uses XP?


    Last time I checked I think it was a crap load. :)

    But Mac's are cool as well. I just use a PC instead.

    Last time I checked the MP's with Leopard are not here yet! I can wait 2 months for Penryn Quad core and updated video cards with highier FSB for the same $$$

    Oh I bought a MPB for my fill in tell they arrive. Cost was $600.00 with a bad screen but my Sony monitor fixed that. Still has apple care for 7 more months.

    ive had a lot of problems with this. downloaded a lot of programs and finally got it to work. of all the programs ive tried, dvd decrypter to rip the dvds and videora to convert are by far the best.
