Free Movies for Your IPod!

Introduction: Free Movies for Your IPod!

This instructable is a "general" outline on how to download any quick time movie (really any movie) and convert it to a format playable on the iPod!

SORRY for the short and to-the-point(ness) (If thats even a word) of the instructabe, i didn't have much time to do it, and i don't have much time in a day--VERY HECTIC SCHEDULE!

Step 1: Find a Movie...

Not that hard... Or is it?

I found a video on the internet of Audioslave's "Doesn't Remind Me" and that is what i am downloading and converting!

Step 2: Find the Hyperlink to the Movie...

I used firefox for this--all you have to do is right click on the page and click on "View Page Source". This will display the HTML content of the page. Select the link as shown in the picture.

Step 3: Create a HTML Page With a Link to It...

Fairly easy, open a HTML editor like expression web, and make a hyper-link to the movie...

Step 4: Download!

Also, fairly easy to understand,
open up the HTML page in your browser, and right click on the link and save the file by clicking "Save As"...

Save the movie in its original format--naming it whatever you want!

Step 5: Pull Into ITunes and Convert!

This is fairly straight forward... Drag the movie into iTunes, and right click on the file and click convert to iPod/ iPhone format... Now, let iTunes work its magic!

Step 6: Sync It to the IPod!

Just drag and drop the new converted movie to the iPod and you are ready to go!

    depending on how big the dvd is the dvd off the disc, then import into itunes, then transfer....(i think, as i don't use itunes often)

    Actually pretty easy. But, the pictures are a little hard to look at because they're kind of small, but nice job, I will do this if I get another iPod video. (Mine has a problem with it.)

    I understand that they are quite small (1680x1050 Monitor) but you can click the little "I" at the top of the picture and then select a larger size! :) Matt
