    sounds like it is not encoded to the correct standard. Is this a movie you encoded yourself or one aquired via iTunes?

    .mov files don't play on the iPod Touch. See apple's spec page for the supported formats.

    It looks to me that only MPEG-4 video is supported.

    I would download Handbrake. It has tons of options, and you can use it to rip DVDs too.
