    I am leaving the country tomorrow and want to have some tv shows and videos on my 5g ipod (video). They are all in quicktime and I don't know how to transfer them to my itunes video library so I can put them on my ipod. Does anyone know how?
    Thank you

    Use iSquint to convert your movies into mp4 (iPod format) and then just drag and drop the .mp4 files into iTunes. You should see all your imported videos under "Movies", right below your library. By right-clicking one and selecting "get info" and then clicking on the "video" button you can change the type of video to TV Show, Movie or Music Video.
    Once this is done, you can sync or manually transfer them to your iPod.

    There's also another way I haven't tried: Take your quicktime movies, drag them onto iTunes and they should appear under "Movies". Select the ones you want and choose "convert selection for iPod/iPhone" in the "Advanced" menu.

    Hope this helps!
