The TV shows and video I purchased play absolutely fine in iTunes, and USED to play perfectly on my iPod, but just in the last year they've stopped working. To be accurate, they do play, but as audio only, and only feature a picture of the TV show artwork rather than the video image.


My iPod and iTunes software is up-to-date. I have reset all the factory settings and reloaded my entire iTunes library. I appreciate any help - I searched for this topic in the archive but never found any answers.
