iPod + iTunes + AppleTV
edited January 2014
Apple's site says that the new video iPods support MPEG files, but none of my .mpg files work. Even if I convert them with Quicktime, they don't work.
Anyone have any success putting mpg files on their video ipods?

most '.mpg' files are either mpeg1 or mpeg 2; neither format is supported by the video ipod. Use quicktime pro or podner to convert the files. both apps are relatively cheap, and worth the money (espcially podner).
the ipod is more likely to support files ending in '.m4v', '.mp4', or even '.mov'
either way it has to be an mpeg4 or h.264 file
enjoy your ipod! i love mine.

mpeg-4 - mp4, not mpeg-1 - mpg

opens up virtually all QT Pro functionality and more for free. Also has presets when exporting in .mov or .mp4 for iPods. If you want to work with .vob files you'll need the MPEG-2 playback component though.
I just wish it had a bit rate calculator for rough video bit rate suggestions.
