iPod users who enjoy having the videos
and movies on their iPod cannot simply
download them onto their device. They
need to convert them into a compatible
format their iPod can understand. Here
are some out our favorite iPod video
converters that are reasonably priced
and chock full of features.
Cucusoft iPod Movie/Video Converter
Cucusoft keeps all of their programs
streamlined and user-friendly. Their
iPod video converter is great for converting
your original media into Apple iPod
Movie and iPod Video formats. If the
video can play properly using your Microsoft
Windows Media Player, then this software
will have no problems whatsoever transferring
it into a readable format within moments
of uploading it into the computer. Formats
supported for conversion include but
a not limited to: DivX; XviD; MOV; RM;
RMVB; DVR-MS; MPEG; WMV; and AVI. This
software is all ‘drag and drop’, making
it very good for beginners.
ImTOO iPod Movie Converter
We liked the ImTOO DVD to iPod converter
so much that we tried out the iPod Movie
Converter as well. And are we glad we
did. This handy program transfers all
your typical video file formats into
the iPod, iTouch and iPhone formats.
All of the necessary codecs are already
built in so users do not have to go
looking for additional ones to download
and fuss with. The conversion settings
can be adjusted as needed by more advanced
users, and the quality of the original
audio and video is retained throughout
the conversion process. ImTOO’s converter
can even handle converting your audio
only files into the iPod format if needed.
Xilisoft iPod Video Converter
Xilisoft offers their customers a
wide variety of conversion software
for their videos and movies, and this
is another one that we liked. With fast
conversion and walk-through wizards,
Xilisoft’s software is great for users
of all levels. Able to convert the typical
audio and video formats, as well as
stand alone audio files, this is software
that does not allow the quality to diminish
during the conversion process. Videos
are outputted in formats that are supported
not only by the iPod Touch, but also
by the new iPod 30G/80G MPEG-4 styles.
Plato Video to iPod Converter
According to this last converter
software that has been added to our
favorite list, Plato’s software converts
twice as fast as the playback speed.
That’s pretty dang fast if you ask us!
With a user-friendly interface and settings
that are simple to use, Plato’s software
converts all of the usual suspects –
DivX, WMV, AVI, MPG, and more. The videos
come out ready to play on your Apple
iPod, iPhone, and Apple TV. You can
convert in batches and the output is
as high-quality as the original media.
If you don’t believe, try it out for
free and see how well you like it.
