Getting Video onto Your iPod

This post was published more than a few years ago (on 2006-03-01) and may contain inaccurate technical information, outmoded thoughts, or cringe takes. Proceed at your own risk.

Here, I was, all ready to do a clever video tutorial on how to use Handbrake to rip video from your DVDs to your 5G iPod (aka, iPod with video), and I see there’s a clever app called iSquint that is optimized for doing just that. Except— wait. No it isn’t. You’d have to decrypt and rip the video to your hard drive first. And then, of course, there’s getting all that metadata into the file… Hmmm…. seems like there’s call for an all-encompassing tutorial after all.
