i'm confused? the first, second and third nano played video and had a camera....the new one doesn't

macbook, Mac OS X (10.6.4)

    Only the fifth generation had a camera. Do you really want to watch video on a tiny screen? If video is important, get an iPod touch or a refurbished 5th gen from Apple online store.

    Last version had video, camera and radio, new one does seem like step back.

    New one has a radio. And a touch screen. And a clip. Step forward or step back just depends on what you want in a music player.

    Yes, video was liked, and while a touch screen is ok, for the intended use, seems not necessary. As for buying a Touch to watch movies, the size and price difference is huge...I agree with the dude who said that it feels like a step backward...its like a shuffle plus, not a Nano. It was nice to have a small, light Ipod that allowed use to watch a video.

    No sir, I don't like the change.
    The clip is nice though!

    It can load videos but it will only play the audio from them.

    Change the video tag in itunes to music video and try to sync that!

    I had a 5th generation which stopped working after a week, and now have a 6th gen one. Wonder how long this one will last.

    I'd assumed that it would play video - who takes features away from one model to the next?

    As others say I wouldn't want to watch anything long on it, but for a 3 minute video podcast I'd prefer to be able to see the video. Seems like a step back. And don't particularly like the touch screen either - was perfectly happy with the track wheel.

    doesn't work changing to a music video for the video podcast I was trying to look at - David Mitchell's soapbox downloaded from iTunes

    any other ideas? thanks

    I believe this nano was developed and designed for use when exercising and not as a camera/movie player. I think they did a good job at it as well.

    If you want a movie player, camera, music/gaming device .. you get a touch.
    If you want a music device, radio, pedometer .. you get a nano.
    If you want a music device .. you get a shuffle.

    (At least that's the way I see it)

    "Any other ideas?"
    Yes, contact Apple. According to their own website...
    http://www.apple.com/accessibility/itunes/hearing.html
    "Captioned Movies on iPod
    iPod models that support video — including iPod classic, iPod nano (3rd, 4th, 5th, and 6th generation), and iPod touch — can also display captions when present in the content. Captions display in a high-contrast white-on-black font that’s easy to read."
    The 6th generation Nano plays video. Plus the fact that the email their accessibility team has sent in response to my question...
    "On your hearing page, closed captioning for videos refers to the newest nano, is this correct?" seems to confirm very clearly...
    "Hi,

    Thank you for the email. That information is correct, if the video content you have synced from iTunes contains closed caption information you can enable closed captioning. One thing to note, the new iPod Nano (6th Generation) will only sync music video content only.

    Apple Accessibility"
    Perhaps there is some special format to Apple Music videos that I am not aware of, but it seems as though changing the tag should allow it to sync. Perhaps it's an update away?

    My 5th Gen has a pedometor and a FM Radio. The only differences that I can see are the touch screen and the clip and possibly the wristwatch feature, but I loose the camera. I already have a shuffle for the gym (Cheap is the way to go at the gym, I had a mini get crushed by free weights).

    Am I misunderstanding their website and the email sent to me? Has anyone synced a music video from the itunes store?
  • dlckson Level 1 Level 1
    i bought a 6th gen nano.. and copied a MP4 file over via iTunes.. it went through..
    but after that, i cannot seem to find the MP4 file..

    can anyone help to tell me, how can i find the MP4 file? [even if i cannot view, then can i delete it?]

    Retaged a mp4 video as a music video, it uploaded ok but all you get is a still image with the audio playing.
