iTunes [Apr. 20th, 2007|09:26 pm]

[Current Mood |geekygeeky]

Yeah, so I think I finally got the iTunes/iPod thing worked out. After removing and re-adding all of my files, twice, that is. D'oh.

Anyway, I found this option to "convert for iPod". I didn't realise that Quicktime files don't all necessarily play on an iPod. You figure Apple product + Apple software = compatibility. Well, guess I lost on that one. I don't fully understand it, but it has something to do with codecs. (All you non-geeks will be bored by now. lol.) Anyway, I'm hoping this will work. If not, I may go back to using Total Video Converter, although I may have to pay for it.

Speaking of paying, my cc bill came in the mail today.

hmm I haven't messed with vid files for my iPod. Seems odd though that Quicktime files won't work, especially since Quicktime is a Mac platform. :/ I'll have to ask my sis or one of my friends with a vid iPod and see what format they use.

It's still *.mov, it's just that iTunes had to do some converty thing to the file in order for it to play on the iPod.

mmm I see. iTunes does weird stuff like that with sound files sometimes.

yeah. Sometimes I'll get an mp3 file that iTunes says it can't play.

Same here, that's why I stopped buying music from them, they were being a pain in the ass about stuff. :/

Enh. The only thing I get from iTunes is a handful of free podcasts and the free song of the week when I remember to d/l it.

Whoa! I have a little 2G nano, it's about all I need for now, at some point I may get a larger one.
