    Hey,
    I was wondering if there was any good free 100% video converters for the touch.
    Just got mine yesterday and a DVD I ripped onto it looks like very poor quality? And I think the iPod converter on that converter was meant for the classic.

    And I've also noticed the videos have to be in mpeg4 format. Or there any good converters for that too? Thanks. :)
    Oh, and I'm on a PC by the way.

    Again, Videora is the best I have come across for Windows.

    videora is good, but it actually made the filesize of the video larger.. and converting to mp4 youd think it get smaller... plus with only 16 gigs i cant have my videos doubling in filesize when i can make them half the size and fit many more.

    so how can we convert to mp4 or mov and compress and make it work?
    thanks

    Id google it.

    That is strange to go up in file size.
    what video settings did you have it on?

    I swear by a program called iSquint. Its a free download and it allows you to convert videos and optimise them for your iPod Touch, without it I wouldn't have any vids on my touch!

    Its also quite good for converting youtube files.

    Hope this helps!

    Haha
    Thanks.

    VisualHub or iSquint are by far the best for Mac, and from my 4 year old Windows memories, Videora was the way to go. To the OP, I suggest lowering the settings to reduce file size. Let us know if it works.

    for handbrake, I can't figure out how to freaking get the input to accept the file. Does handbrake only accept DVDs?

    I have .wmv and .avi and others that I need converted.

    Handbrake does not seem as user friendly as windows AVS converter

    i use this all the time. its not free, but very cheap and works fantastically. lots of presets and advanced settings for those who like to fiddle.

    I think so, unfortunately. It looks like you can do a lot more with Videora.

    Being a new switcher...I too was looking for a free video converter for my Touch. After some googling, I found MPEG StreamClip. It's free, the encoded videos are of good quality...an excellent free replacement for VisualHub :)

    visual hub is awesome for converting between formats... and handbrake is awesome for converting dvd's...
