Thanks. Had to rebuild mencoder with faac and x264, though I had playback
support in mplayer already.
Transcoded with those parameters, my clip plays in mplayer but doesn't
work on the iPod. At least, I can't seem to add it to the library in
iTunes on XP - it has no thumbnail, and when I select it and click "open"
it doesn't appear in the library. I may just have done something stupid -
I copied various files earlier which play in iTunes but not on the iPod
itself. Including one movie trailer from a website that said it had files
The player is I believe a 5th generation 8Gb iPod Nano (with camera).
I tried gtkpod to try and load directly from Linux, but AFAIK that only
supports as far as the 4th generation. I think Apple may have changed the
database from iTunesDB to iTunesCDB, and gtkpod/gnupod fail to load it.
(I also tried the thinliquidfilm converterin Python, which uses FFMpeg
but totally fails to understand any of my movies. I guess I am missing stuff)
