convert to ipod video format

Ok... so I finally bought an iPod Classic 160Gb ideo and music player. Be stuffed with paying Virgin Blue their ransom demand for using the inflight video and audio every time I fly. That's just a rort. I'd rather pay $450 for a 160Gb iPod...

Anyway... I have AVI files I want to convert to iPod format and I also have Apple's own Quicktime format movies that I apparently need to convert so the iPod can play it.

I did a search on Google but there's a million different converters out there. I want a freeware one that does the lot (not asking much am I?). I don't want to use iTunes to convert which is the one thing everyone is saying...

:)

Virgin Blue's "random demand"?

$6 is hardly a random demand, especially for a live-to-air system such as theirs.

Have you any idea how much it costs to develop such a complex system, take their aircraft out of service to fit the system, and then install screens in every single seatback?

Virgin Blue already offer multi-channel audio-on-demand for free, and have service standards similar to Qantas, and provide, for an additional fee, extremely better in-flight entertainment (Live-to-Air).

In comparison, if you fly 45 times a year, Live2Air is still cheaper than your iPod.

And in comparison, Qantas, Sydney to Brisbane, is usually about $120, for a standard meal, and sub-standard in-flight entertainment. Whereas with VirginBlue, your seat, your meal, and your in-flight entertainment would cost you no more than $100.

Fool.

Fool? That's your signature is it?

Why the personal attack?

I appreciate more how much it costs for a ticket and what I get for the money. If their live to air was a little more up to scratch, perhaps I wouldn't have gone for an iPod.

By not up to scratch, I mean I that object to having to pay for this live to air "service" that is generally jittery, unsharp, shitty contrast or just no brightness at all or just or not working whatsoever... like the flight from Adelaide to Sydney Friday-week ago (DJ417) where the entire right side of the plane's l-t-a didn't work. So those things weighed up, including the fact that I do fly more than 45 times a year and feel that's too many times to put up with shitty quality video... I've bought an iPod and am more happy with it. $6 or $16 - if it ain't working it ain't worth 0.60c mate.

So... any recommendations for a video converter or do you want to continue to fly the flag for Virgin Blue and making personal attacks? I mean... I'll still fly them - or Qantas or Jet Star - whoever can get me where I want, when I want... but I'll be doing it with my shiny new iPod because at least it works. Regardless of how much it costs Virgin Blue to develop their system or how little I care about it.

EDIT: so Clarke - you sign up another account for just this one post to make a personal attack? Pretty gutless....

Videora is also pretty good on windows.

On mac, iSquint and Handbrake do a great job.

Looks good mate. But doesn't fit the "free" category that I was asking for. The ones suggested above that are free do the job quite well.

Super works super for me :P

I think ClarkeSYD must be someone from VirginBlue, with that amount of passion, information and good grammer it reeks of public relations adding there two cents for a company, it would be interesting to see the IPs for where it was posted :P

Try the Jodix Free iPod Video Converter. I've been using it to convert video's for my zune and it seems to fit your needs. It is also one of the fastest converters I have ever used.

I just tried this and it works a treat. Nice, small download, too. I did notice in their online FAQ that if a video file isn't supported you need to install the Mega Codec Pack, so it may not be quite as full-featured as the ones mentioned above. I like it, though.

Yeah, I've got the k-lite mega pack installed. I would recommend that everyone should have it installed as ever since I've installed it I don't think I've ever had a problem with a video not playing correctly.

The converter is simple and hasn't got many advanced features but after using SUPER for so long it's a welcome break to just have to adjust a couple of settings before converting a video.

SUPER works for me very well! I also use a program that came with a PC User magazine - PC User iPod Video Convertor, very original name but it seems to do the job.

Handbrake is multi-platform, Multi-threaded, has an iPod preset (and plenty of others, Xbox360 and PS3 among them). Its fast and easy to use and open source I believe. Highly recommended for all your encoding needs.
