How do I convert movie to iPod format?


As popularity of portable video players grows, special programs appear, allowing user to produce high quality picture and sound especially for some type of player. Converting AVI to iPod may be a bit tricky with a usual multi-purpose video converter, as you should set necessary resolution, bitrate, and other options yourself. Specialized programs already know everything about their target, you should take only a few simple steps to accomplish this non-trivial task.
