Video on nephew's Ipod (from a Ipod newb)

I am a total Ipod newb, but got my nephew one cause he wanted one, and I thought maybe he knew how they worked, since he was adamant about me getting him that over a laptop, ( altho my answer is quickly becoming exchange it for a laptop)

I've tried converting a dvd, I've tried multiple Mpeg4's/movs/etc, I cannot get the damn thing to recognize a video, I put the music on it fine, but can't get a video of any kind on it, just mostly wanted to toss a movie on it for his flight home. Is there a way to turn it into a drag and drop or something. every google search seems to lead me to Jailbreaking guides, and well if he's gonna be this newb, I wanna make sure he can bring it somewhere when he screws it up, so would prefer not to jailbreak it.

Any tips/tricks for video? do only Downloaded from Itunes count? is there a way I can put a Dvd on it? ( considering I bought him some dvd movies he hadn't seen when it was still a laptop plan rofl)

    I have tried Mpeg4, mov, and m4v with no luck, Initially are just yanked off a TDK dvd and tossed thru a converter a few times. It doesn't even seem like it's the video that's the error, cause I go to add file to library like I did with the music, and nothing happens, just keeps the tutorial style screen on the left instead of turning to a list like the music did once that started.

    What converter are you using? I would recommend trying Handbrake. It makes it extremely simple to convert whatever you give it into a variety of Apple device supported formats.

    was using the Jodix, I'll try the Handbrake one, see if that changes anything
