The initial release of Apples Ipod Video Player seems to have encouraged hundreds of software developers to create software that converts video files into the format that the ipod video player supports. I have been using Super for that purpose for a long time which is a great converter, probably the best that is currently available for free.
Super has a disadvantage though and that is that it displays that many options and switches that it may overwhelm users who are just getting started. And that is not even considering the problem of finding the proper download link on the author's website.
Still, if you get used to it, you get a program that can convert nearly any video format into formats supported by Apple's iPod Video.
If you want to use a program that you can just turn on and run, then you may be more interested in the free video conversion Ipod Video Converter. It serves only one purpose and that is to convert most video files into Apple ipod video format. It supports the most common formats such as avi, divx, mpg, flv, xvid and many more which means that you should have no troubles converting your files into the proper format.
Just add videos that you want to convert to the Ipod video converter or select YouTube videos and click on convert when all videos that you want to convert have been added. The process does not take long and the best feature of this software is that it works fine with the default settings. No need to tweak them in any way which is excellent for beginners.
Videos are saved by default to the files directory, you may choose a different standard directory if you have files from many different locations in the queue.
Update: The installer will install a toolbar and make changes to your homepage and default browser search engine if you do not select custom installation and disable the options before you click on Accept and Install to commence the installation. You are now also asked to select an interface language on first start after installation. The program supports more than a dozen different languages.
