    I have had the ipod touch for a week now with the new updated firmware. Today is the first time i actually tried to use the fast forward function for movies and it doesn't work. I can rewind.

    I can' t tell if it has something to do with conversion of the movie or software issue. Any help would be appreciated.

    I am able to FF movies. I have a week 38 touch, and the latest firmware. I tried it w/ a movie I converted from DVD to H.264 using Handbrake, iPhone preset. Perhaps its something to do with your conversion?

    I would also guess it's a format/conversion problem. For example, on windows media player, some clips will fastforward and some won't. If I remember correctly, it has something to do with the index frames...

    same here. i think it has to do with chapters. rewind works as it takes you to beginning of chapter. ff doesnt as theres only one chapter. thats my guess

    Converted - no, iTunes - Yes

    I converted one and it will not fast forward.
    I bought one on Itues and it will fastfoward.
    I have a week 28 and I have not updated to 1.1.1

    all the movies I've converted with handbrake in h.264 ff and rew just fine. Just hold down the chapter skip fwd or back button. U can also ff/rew with the seek head at the top of the screen.

    alright, it does fast forward. I have to hold it down longer for some reason for it to kick in. That's weird because the rewind function works quicker.
