Video to iPod Converter Guide

Converting video files in Videora iPod Converter is dead easy (when connected to the internet), as it has a built-in online guide to help you convert your videos. This guide will show you how to convert your video files. To view a larger version of any of the screenshots, simply click on the screenshot desired.

You can still convert videos if you do not have an internet connection present. However, you may only use the Power Mode to convert videos, as the Normal Mode requires the internet to show its online guide. The guide below is intended for Normal Mode users only. If you are Power Mode user, you should be reading our Video to iPod Guide for Power Mode.

This will take you to the Convert Section of the program. Once you are there, click the "Video File" tab and you should see the next screenshot.

Conversely, you can click on the "Video File" link [Lower Purple Box] in the Home Section browser. This will take you directly to the "Video File" tab in the Convert Section.

Mode Selection - Videora iPod Converter has two ways of converting videos, though Normal Mode, which can only be used when an internet connection is present, and through Power Mode, which can be used when both online or offline.

As explained in the screenshot, Normal Mode is for users that don't understand technical jargon and want an easy way to convert videos. On the other hand, Power Mode is for users who understand acronyms like MPEG-4, H.264, QVGA, VGA, Kbps, terms like 1 Pass, 2 Pass, AviSynth and want the ability to change every possible video conversion setting.
