    Hi all,
    Newbe to forums.
    Have had iPod touch 2nd gen for a while now, but decided I would like to put some movies I have on my pc onto me touch to watch while at work.
    My problem is I can put them on but none of them will play.
    I have some video songs on it, from the apps store, they play perfect.
    All the video's are mp4 which I'm told are the format they need to be.
    I load them on through iTunes. The play in iTunes on my pc but when put onto touch they don't play at all.
    Have done a google search and have tried some things but thought I would be best to try out forum for help.

    Willing to try anything.

    Was thinking of doing a factory reset just incase I may have altered some settings in the past that's causing me problem.?

    It's possible that the videos, while they are mp4, they are not in a size/format that the iPod touch understands. I would suggest you try converting one of the videos to iPod Touch format using a free program called "Handbrake". See if the converted file works.

    You can find instructions on how to user Handbrake to do this here: http://www.thefakegeek.com/2011/07/how-to-convert-video-for-ipod-touch-and-iphone/
