If the ability to bypass iTunes is worth $20 to you then by all means, try this product if not, there are several free alternatives out there.

You can keep your video files anywhere on your hard drive. To install it in your iPod, just drag the file on the iPod listing in the playlist pane. No need to add it to your library just to install on your iPod.

My testing shows that this app produces the same quality files and encodes a bit slower than Handbrake and iSquint.

Podner converts more filetypes and is more tolerant of MPEG -1 (VCD, .DAT) encoded files (which to me justifies the shareware fee).

I'm sure it works great, but I'll stick to iSquint. It's free,and does everything I need it to.

I just downloaded PodFlicks, and I think you missed the biggest feature of this program that does make it different from ALL the others... iTunes is not required.

One of my biggest disapointments with the video iPod when I first got it was the cumbersome way you have to get video on to it. If you purchase video from the iTunes store, it's seemless, but if you want to put your own video's on the iPod, it stinks! You need to first compress the video to an iPod friendly format (that's what all these programs do), then get it into iTunes and sync your iPod. Ever try to find where iTunes put's the file? In an Unknown Artist/Unkown Album file in your iTunes MUSIC folder. Really nice. So after you have a hundred or so videos, it's a pain to find them. And it stinks that you now have ten's of gigabytes of video data in your MUSIC folder. That really makes sense when there's a MOVIES folder right next to it!

As far as I can tell, PodFlicks allows you to go around iTunes and manage the videos on your iPod directly. I can convert and store the movies on a hard drive/folder I want, and put it on the iPod directly from within PodFlicks. This is really cool!

iTunes is great for managing your music, and does a pretty good job, but it seems that the video integration was a hack. So far, PodFlicks seems to address this nicely. My biggest complaint with this program is it seems to not allow batch processing unless I missed something. Hopefully this is coming soon.

mojoFlicks will take care of all the tedious details of getting your video content into a format that is compatible with the video iPods. No longer do you have to guess how to configure QuickTime, tweak the settings for the best quality and wait for the conversion process to be complete only to have iTunes reject the converted movie. mojoFlicks will automatically convert your content into an acceptable format and copy the movie directly to your iPod. Once the conversion is complete - eject your iPod, traverse to the Video:Movies menu, select your Movie and press play.
