    someone else please correct me if I'm wrong but I believe that Ipod Touch can only play QT files that have been encoded via H.264 or Mpeg 4 (DVD standard). So most likely those particular "casts" have been encoded via another process like sorenson or something. I would recommend using Itunes to convert them as it has the proper codes built in for the iPod Touch.

    Or if you are feeling adventurous you could always try converting them yourself using a program like Videora or the like. (free program BTW).

    Peace.
