iPod video conversion
A flurry of applications are surfacing designed to convert video into a format compatible with the fifth-generation iPod. ISquint.com has released iSquint 1.2, an update to the free iPod video conversion utility for Mac OS X. The application is many times faster than QuickTime Pro, and works with almost all popular video formats, according to the author. Lenogo Software also released its Lenogo DVD Movie to iPod Video Converter version 05, and claims the app is the fastest DVD movie to iPod video converter software thus far in the world. Another Mac developer released Senuti 0.32 yesterday, updating the utility that copies music from an iPod to a Mac. iSquint 1.2 requires Mac OS X 10.3.9 or later, and is available for free. Lenogo DVD Movie to iPod Video Converter is available for $30 (system requirements were unavailable). Senuti 0.32 requires Mac OS X 10.3 or later, and is available for free.
