Itunes and AVI Files
« on: January 09, 2012, 12:39:40 AM »
So my bro got an iPod from Christmas. He wants to put AVI files on his iPod. So this is what I've tried so far.

-Convert AVI files to MP4 with free converter.
-Tried importing said file into iTunes to sync to iPod.
-It will not import them...
-The same procedure worked fine when importing files after conversion on my PC. (I have a lower version of iTunes)

I don't have an iPod or use one, so I'm a noob when it comes to this sort of thing.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

I would highly recommend http://handbrake.fr/. It's got settings to convert directly to iPod format, and from there you should be able to successfully import into iTunes.

I was going to mention Handbrake, but I use it more for general transcoding, forgot it did iPod XD

Also there was this one program I used to use alot, with CUDA acceleration and could literally go from anything to anything...but I forgot what it was X_X
Don't remember me as I was...I was an idiot.
