Create Versions of Your Own Videos to Work with iPod classic
You can view other video files on iPod classic, such as videos you create in iMovie on
a Mac or videos you download from the Internet. Import the video into iTunes, convert
it for use with iPod classic, if necessary, and then add it to iPod classic.
iTunes supports many of the video formats that QuickTime supports. For more
information, see “If you can’t add a song or other item to iPod classic” on page 62.
Some videos may be ready for use with iPod classic after you import them to iTunes.
If you try to add a video to iPod classic (see “Syncing Videos Automatically” on
page 24), and a message says the video can’t play on iPod classic, then you must
convert the video for use with iPod classic. Depending on the length and content of a
video, converting it for use with iPod classic can take several minutes to several hours.
When you create a video for use with iPod classic, the original video also remains in
your iTunes library.
