  1. Another day – another iTunes

    Hey, video experts… if I were going to take some of the concert footage I have on DVD, break it into songs, and put them into iTunes, what would be the best format/size? Should I go ahead and “export to iPod” and use the .m4v files? That seems like a huge reduction in quality from the original, but the filesize is great. Opinions?

  2. I was waiting for this!

    Given the problems with iTunes 5.0, I wasn’t in a big hurry to download iTunes 6.0.

    Since I don’t have an iPod (I have no need) and I don’t buy from the iTunes store (ditto), I may not download 6.0.1 any time soon either.

    Of course, if I do it will clear the Software Update “new Software is available for your computer” list ” width=”19″ height=”19″ alt=”wink” style=”border:0;” />

  3. if you cut your concert footage in qtpro you can then export to ipod then drag and drop to itunes. you maybe able to edit the footage in imovie also. i don’t know if you can export to ipod from imovie. i did export starwars: revelations to ipod and it came out rather well.

  4. G3s are now officially out for video, I guess. I was afraid that was coming, eh?

    I hadn’t been able to watch most videos on my G3 since quite a while back. It doesn’t handle QuickTime 7 so good, I suspect.


  5. This sounds like some DRM issues are involved:

    “…you will also need to upgrade your other computers that purchase music from the iTunes Music Store to iTunes 6.0.1, Apple’s notes state.”

    Does it mean 6.0.1 music downloads won’t work on earlier versions?

  6. Get a Quad, eh? Cute. heh … send money?

    err .. does anybody know when we’ll get sub-categories back in iTunes in the Podcast searches? I miss them badly. They were appearing before and were very useful, particularly when searching the International podcasts. They used to list International podcast sub-categories by language and sometimes by country. I was keeping track of the number of podcasts from each language/country, but that’s now gone.

    grrrr …
