How to convert MKV WMV AVI MOD MTS VIDEO_TS and other encode videos to ipod on mac!





iPod is a brand of portable media players designed and marketed by Apple Inc. and launched on October 23, 2001.
The product line-up includes the hard drive-based iPod Classic, the touchscreen iPod Touch, the video-capable iPod Nano, the screenless iPod Shuffle and the iPhone. Former products include the compact iPod Mini and the spin-off iPod Photo (since reintegrated into the main iPod Classic line). iPod Classic models store media on an internal hard drive, while all other models use flash memory to enable their smaller size (the discontinued Mini used a Microdrive miniature hard drive). As with many other digital music players, iPods, excluding the iPod Touch, can also serve as external data storage devices. Storage capacity varies by model.

The iPod line can play several audio file formats including MP3, AAC/M4A, Protected AAC, AIFF, WAV, Audible audiobook, and Apple Lossless. The iPod Photo introduced the ability to display JPEG, BMP, GIF, TIFF, and PNG image file formats.

The iPod line can play three encoding types videos, and they are all in .mp4 postfix:
H.264 video: up to 1.5 Mbps, 640 by 480 pixels, 30 frames per second, Low-Complexity version of the H.264 Baseline Profile with AAC-LC audio up to 160 Kbps, 48kHz, stereo audio in .m4v, .mp4, and .mov file formats;
H.264 video: up to 2.5 Mbps, 640 by 480 pixels, 30 frames per second, Baseline Profile up to Level 3.0 with AAC-LC audio up to 160 Kbps, 48kHz, stereo audio in .m4v, .mp4, and .mov file
formats;
MPEG-4 video: up to 2.5 Mbps, 640 by 480 pixels, 30 frames per second, Simple Profile with AAC-LC audio up to 160 Kbps, 48kHz, stereo audio in .m4v, .mp4, and .mov file formats.

As large number of videos are not .mp4 videos and also the .mp4 videos are in different encoding, so if you want to put the popular videos like avi mkv, wmv, mp4, mod, mov, quicktime etc. to ipod on mac, or if you want to put the videos from camcorder/camera to ipod on mac (always in .m2ts, .mts, .tp, .trp), you need a prefessional mac dvd to ipod movie converter and ipod video converter to convert the videos to the right .mp4 videos.

Video_TS is a folder in DVD , you can also rip a dvd to mp4 video, here is a guide about how to convert video ts to ipod on mac!
