Do you mean Quick Time player?  That's some apple program isn't
it...part of iTunes?

The good news is I just converted a file to m4v using HandBrake and it
played perfectly on the iPod.

I get stuck on codecs- it's got to be mp4 or nothing at all.  So, when
someone suggests m4v I scratch my head and say, "what's that? Never
heard of it.

Comedy aside....is m4v a common codec/container?

Thanks for the suggestions.
