I dun mind the "rental" charge in itunes store but there are some of my own movies I wanna watch also, i've got windows only atm (but can use my macbook if neede) and looking for the simplest "one click" program to convert a dvd into a good or high quality movie on the ipod touch. the only setting I'd like to have is slider for quality of audio/video and possibly 1/2 pass option.... Please some freeware recommendations, vlc has been tried and movie crashes all players and i don't think much of the commercial options. Also.... I have an old "un-official" cable from my older video ipod.. one of those 3.5mm to video component "adapters", I've tried and not working on touch. Is disabled? changed? or updated? Is there a new dock available, cable, etc..?
