Hey guys,
I was wondering if there was any way to put my movies on my Ipod video, without buying them from itunes. I found software that converts videos, but I can't find anything that will let me put my movies on it. thx

ya, I know that. I was wondering if there is a free program that you can download that gets the movie off the DVD in mp4/m4v format.

There are a ton of bittorrent web sites that you can download all that from, but for the most part they are illegal

get psp video9, it converts movie files for psp in the same format so it should work.

Yeah, dont mention anything illegal in this thread or it gets closed. We don't play about that. Same rule as downloading music.

You can copy them onto the computer... then upload through iTunes... You dont need any special programs to do it. You can convert the format with iTunes.

go to www.download.com and look for a program that converts to whatever file you need. or just google it, but thats harder. i had to find a .amv video converter for my mp3/mp4 player... that took forever with google.

Well, for some reason when I convert it in itunes it doesn't have sound. :confused: Am I doing somthing wrong?

buy a video converter software, of get the trial version(only lets you convert 5 minutes at a time), find the video, from hardrive/internet, download it, convert it, load it to itunes, load it to your ipod, its pretty easy, i got like 50 videos i found on the internet

its not illegal to backup a DVD if you already own it. if you buy a movie, you sure can put it on your ipod. thats like saying if you buy a CD you arent allowed to put the songs on your ipod.

You need a program that rips the DVD to your computer and then a program that converts ripped DVDs to a format compatible with video iPods

Programs that rip: http://www.versiontracker.com/php/search.php?mode=basic&action=search&str=dvd+rip&plt%5B%5D=windows&x=0&y=0

Programs that convert: http://www.versiontracker.com/php/search.php?mode=basic&action=search&str=ipod+video&plt%5B%5D=windows&x=0&y=0

Browse through the lists and download a few of each. I would recommend trying the freeware ones first.
