So you got a new Apple iPod that has the ability to play videos? That’s great! To transfer or load video files onto your iPod, you first need a converter that will resize and compress the video into a smaller size to fit into your iPod and have the best screen optimization.
There are only few free softwares out there that will convert the video files for you. My favorite is Videora iPod Converter. This software will do just about anything. You can rip a movie from DVD or simply take a video file from Youtube and then convert it in few easy steps. However, you will need DVD Decrypter to rip the movies from DVD first. It works for iPod Classic, iPod Nano, iPod Touch, iPhone and iPod Video. Once you get the converted file, you need to use Apple iTunes to transfer the compatible video onto your iPod.
Paid softwares such as DVDFab Platinum and Xilisoft iPod Video Converter offer more features and file formats but they are unnecessary in most cases. Videora converts the file just as easy and for free.
