Publisher's description of Videora iPod Converter
Videora iPod Converter is a free iPod video converter that converts video files, YouTube videos, movies and DVD's so you can play them on your iPod. The software can convert all types of video files (avi, divx, xvid, flv, x264, vob, mkv, mpeg, DVD's, YouTube, etc.) into the proper video formats (MPEG-4, H.264) that play on the iPod. Version 3.0.7 added support for more subtitle formats and improved error reporting.

This freeware video-to-iPod converter aims to be the ultimate in desktop iPod and iPhone accessories. It can take just about any video format, smoothly output it in either H.264 or MPEG-4, and download YouTube videos. It has some drawbacks, but nothing that outweighs the benefits of owning this superb converter.
The program is geared for beginners and advanced users by utilizing two different conversion interfaces. Beginners are walked through each step of the process, while those more comfortable with video conversion have all their choices laid out in one pane. The built-in Internet Explorer points only to YouTube, but it means that you can easily search the site, download videos, and convert them without having to jump between apps. Conversion rates were fairly quick, with a 1-minute FLV taking less than 2 minutes to convert.
The ad-supported app has a heavy footprint, so be prepared to close some programs if your machine doesn't have at least 2GB of RAM. This also led to irregular hangs, and we had to restart the program on numerous occasions after it had been idle for more than 5 minutes. Also, Videora opens iTunes as soon as a conversion is finished. It's a convenience for some, but can be disabled should users want.
