I'm thinking about getting an iPod, so correct me if I'm wrong but does the iPod sort videos in a similar way to audio.
I don't own a 5G iPod. But from I have seen, I would say it does.

If this is true, would it be possible to add some function to just write something in the iTunesDB to point to the file. E.G. you place the file on the iPod yourself then use foo_dop to tell the iPod it's location.

Problem is, you really need more than just the path to put them in the database properly. I need to identify videos from songs, as well as fill the database with the standard metadata and categorise them (TV Show, Music Video, ..). So true I don't really need foobar2000 to be able to play videos, but at least recognise them (as video files).

Wow.. it's finally taking shape. biggrin.gif Thank you~ :3 Now, what about transcoding? biggrin.gif Coz I only have lossless on my foobar. T_T
I think there's a little while yet before I think about things like that wink.gif

And to make it increasingly ridiculous, while still remaining useful:
[*]Use the existing converter, with custom default presets for only supported formats.
I thought I read someone complaining about no converter API ?
QUOTE (kode54 @ Jun 8 2006, 08:19) *
[*]No tagging for the converted files, since all the information will be transferred from the original files to the iPod's database.
Still, if you want to rebuild the database, play files of the iPod on your computer, or something.
QUOTE (kode54 @ Jun 8 2006, 08:19) *
[*]Cache up to N files or N megabytes worth of transcoded files in a configurable directory. Files will be named according to a hash of the original file's name and/or tags, size, and last modification timestamp, something that can be quickly generated. Any time a transcode already exists, its modification time will be retouched to the current time, as transcodes can be deleted after a configurable number of days, and when a new file exceeds the cache size maximum, the oldest file will be deleted.
I told you it would get ridiculous.

AFAIK what foo_pod did was name the file on the iPod by some hash of the original file. I don't know though; if you re tag your files, you don't exactly want to convert them again, but Im not sure if there is actually anything practical I could do about that..

Personally I just keep transcoded copies of whatever on my hard drive, less hassle I thought but you have redundancy / consistency issues..
