(Alright with my Creative Zen PMC's battery bloated, and I am looking to get a portable media player for my long flight... so far 32GB Ipod Touch looks quite appealing)

Which brought me to this question, I have a few DIVX videos that I wish to import into itunes (and ultimately to Ipod Touch), but I couldn't figure out why itunes doesn't play or do anything with it?

So, anyone have any idea how to get DIVX added into itunes? (I have them in Windows Media Player 11 on Vista) I would like them to be itunes and Ipod Touch compatible...

don't own an ipod or a touch myself, personally loath the itunes software, when i did use an ipod i used a plugin for winamp to drag and drop files onto my ipod, way better and less bugs than itunes. anyway did a quick check on google for ya and it appears people have been having a lot of problems with this. it appears only quicktime playable divx files can be imported into itunes which means the embedded audio needs to be wav not mp3 i think, you may in fact have to purchase quicktime pro in order to make this work. found a few links u should check out...

My partner just brought a 16gb iPod Touch and I have to say I'm very impressed with it.

Anyway, I'm currently using Jodix to convert VOB files (recognises a wide range including DivX) into MP4 format, which iTunes recognises, but to then sync the file onto the Touch, a further conversion (carried out by iTunes) to M4V is required.  It's a little bit fiddly but the results are well worth it.

I haven't got any DivX files myself so can't give any indication of times, but if you stitch a group of VOB files together (using the DOS copy /b command [am I showing my age?]) you can form one continuous movie which will take a few hours (via Jodix then iTunes) to convert.  Once it's all converted the upload is quite fast and the movie very watchable.

If anyone has any suggestions about a faster way of doing things I'm all ears...

Videora seems like a likely candidate...

There are plenty more converters which do the same thing, so you'll need to search around for the best one which suits your requirements.

Well I decided to get Apple Ipod Touch 32GB and have been converting the DIVX/XVID movies to MP4 format using Videora Ipod Touch converter.

It's working alright, takes about 34-40mins for each movie using Pentium D 3.0GHz with 4GB on Vista 32-bit ultimate. The quality is at 480x320@384kbps. Tested on the Ipod Touch and it's looking fine to me.

Cheers to all who suggested any converter, I will try them all out when I have more time. I chose or used Videora because I have very little time left before me flying off tomorrow (today). It's not the nicest looking program though, and looks like it is depending on web content quite a bit... I can see ads etc... any chance to not having them - any Videora user?

I just block it in my firewall and it doesn't affect functionality at all.
