The easiest way to obtain movies and transfer them to your iPod is by purchasing them from the iTunes store. This way, they are already in the proper format and can be easily transferred to your video iPod when you synch up with your PC.
If you have movies on DVD and want to transfer them to your iPod, the PQ DVD to iPod Converter suite will rip them for you and allow you to transfer them over easily.
This suite also converts other video formats to iPod, so you can transfer over AVI video from your camcorder, YouTube or media purchased from RealMedia to your iPod, as well.
It runs about $30, and is downloadable from the web.
