Which video format ipod 8g touch supports? I tried .3gp , .avi but it doesnt support it. I want to convert the video files from .3gp or .avi to ipod supporting video format. Kindly recommend which software is easy to convert the videos.

Every kind of ipod support the mp4 format, it´s the only video codec they use. I recommend you to download a programm called media codec, it´s completely free and doesn´t take so much time to convert the videos and you can specify how you want the final video. If you don´t know about that stuff you can use ipod media converter, the bad thing about this programm is that you have to pay, but here you can chose exactly for what ipod is the video and all the process is automatic.

I'm using MP4 too ;) If it isn't working at first try changing the codec to xvid/divx and it should work :) I used Jet Audio's built in converter. It has pre-made perset for iPods ;)
