Currently Being ModeratedSep 27, 2010 7:35 PM (in response to run-mofo)Thanks for trying that... now I wonder how an actual itunes music video could be any different? Could it require the universal access be activated? Why would they provide closed captioning for music videos if they are only going to show a still picture? Something is strange.mac mini 1.25, Mac OS X (10.5.8)
Currently Being ModeratedSep 27, 2010 10:57 PM (in response to Michael vandervort)I can confirm that a Itunes bought music video WILL NOT play video.
Same deal, still image with audio only playing.Toshiba i5 l500 /025, Windows 7, 16gb (Product) Red Nano 6G
Currently Being ModeratedSep 27, 2010 11:23 PM (in response to run-mofo)Seems rather odd.
A video basically becomes a song, with the first frame as the cover art.
Im not sure how Apple does things but if the Ipod decodes the video to get its cover art it doesnt seem too much of a hard thing to get actual video playing.
Unless Itunes decodes the video then adds the cover art seperately.
I do know that videos are stored as m4v files on the Ipod, but this maybe purely to still have an intact video to use at some stage.Toshiba i5 l500 /025, Windows 7, 16gb (Product) Red Nano 6G

Wow, this is a real turn-off... Just bought it, tomorrow in the backseat of a ten-hour drive to Switserland... Was really looking forward to lay back and watch some of my favorite series, just as a did on my old nano... I hope very much that the next nano version will have video again! Though many people won't use the nano for video I guess... But I was very happy with it. Really easy to watch a quick episode with in the metro for example.

i agree that it *****. i was told by an apple sales person that it DID play video and get home, open it --try it and it does NOT play video. this is so lame. let people decide if they want to watch something at this small size... don't just strip a major feature out of a product and tell them how to use it/later (or misinform them, in my case). not happy with this no-video business AT ALL. boo!

In case you didn't notice, the 6th gen iPod Nano (I got one for Christmas) actually HAS a podcast application, you just have to download your video as a podcast. But I WAS wondering what file extension name a podcast that is supported by iTunes is. . .

My video did not play on the ipod nano... then I started it from my ipod on itunes... after that it now works on the ipod without itunes... it looked like it just needed a kickstart

Acorrding to people on YouTube, the nano 6 software is based on previous software with a iOS STYLE GUI, as he managed to remove the photos icon, if this is true, then all you need to is create a link between the GUI and the iPod os, however as yet I am not sure how to access the internals of the iPod software, when I can I shall confirm and update information said here :-)
