Free program iSquint
converts your AVI and MPEG video files to iPod-compatible MP4 files using a MAC only.
Drag in your file, click "Start", and away you go. You can even set Screen-size and quality preferences.
On a 1.5GHz G4, iSquint
can convert most video files to iPod-screen-sized videos in realtime. Depending on a few factors, a 20 minute video will take up anywhere from 50-150MB of disk space.
Though the new iPod's limited video encoder support is kind of a pain, iSquint
should go a long ways toward making things a bit easier. Credit: Yahoo News
