    Hey guys, I have access to the iPod touch 2G GM 3.0 seed and well, I can confirm that we can download videos and iTunes U from the iTunes app now. Here are some screen shots for all of you to enjoy. What do you think? I would imagine a full movie would be quite slow, but who knows. That's where the 3GS's power come in I guess...

    This was confirmed at WWDC.

    Anyways, I have 3.0 and I rented a movie on my iPod Touch 2G the other night. I was actually annoyed (and surprised) by the fact that you have to wait for the movie to download completely before watching. I expected it to be like on a computer or Apple TV...where you can start watching while it downloads. But it did download fairly fast.

    Oh, I must've missed that in the keynote. I will take down this thread as it is irrelevant. Damn, I got excited too. Well, thanks.

    What remains to be seen is whether or not video downloads will be available over the 3G network. No one seems to know for sure but I have read a few comments here and there where people claim to have done this.

    The videos are limited over 3G the same as music and applications. Anything under 10MB will download, anything over 10MB requires WiFi.

    You answered my question before I was able to ask it. I think I will stick to downloading movies at home. It's easier on me to tie up my home PC downloading while I'm at work than draining my iPhone battery downloading at home.

    While I would tend to agree, I read a post where someone claimed to have downloaded much larger files than that.
