Most people that own iPod’s know that they can down load movies to their iPod but not everyone knows the best way to do it. Follow the measures outlined below and you will have all your movies on your iPod in no time backup dvd.
Tips on how to download motion pictures to iPod – Watch videos you already own
The first step in watching movies you already own is to get them on to your computer. Just pop the DVD into the DVD drive. The next thing you will need to do is get a DVD ripper. A DVD ripper will allow you to take the films from the DVD and put it onto your computer hard drive. This will take a while depending on the quality of your DVD ripper, also must good quality DVD rippers cost anywhere from $29.99 – $69.99. (If you already have the videos that you want to watch on your iPod on your computer’s hard drive go to Step 2)
The next step in being able to watch movies on your iPod is converting the videos you have on your computer to iPod format so you can transfer them onto your iPod. For this you will need a iPod video converter or any other program that converts video files to .mp4 (H.264 encoding) because this is the only format of video that the iPod plays. A good free iPod video converter I can recommend is “videora iPod converter”, just search it on google, its free and pretty good. This step will also take sometime depending on the size and length of your movie and the quality of the video converter (free ones take longer).
Before you go to the third step make sure all of the movies you want to obtain onto your iPod are in proper iPod format.
The third step is the easiest, after ripping and converting all the films all we have left to do is actually transfer it onto your iPod. To transfer the films onto your iPod you will need iTunes if you own an iPod you will probably already have this program because you need it for everything. Simply open up iTunes, scan the movies you want into the iTunes library, connect the iPod and hit “sync”. Finally you can enjoy your videos on your iPod.
