    No, you cannot playback video content on the nano. See this.

    Yes, you can play video on a Nano.
    You just need to install iPodLinux...

    The iPod nano does not support video playback.

    That's a software hack you're referring to which even the iPod Linux team do not support for use on the nano.

    IPODLINUX VOIDS THE WRRANTY ON THE IPOD NANO!!!

    ITs hack software that in many noted cases will turn your nano into a worthless paperwight. DO NOT USE IT! Also please do not encourage usage of such software that will void the warranty on an apple product thats is clearly NOT SUPPORTED HERE NOR BY THE CREATORS! Why is it so hard to realize its simpler to sell your nano adn buy the larger 5th gen ipod.

    Look on the bottom of your iPod box and look at the information. Now do you see something that says "Plays music and photo slideshows"? If so, do you see "plays videos" anywhere on there?

    .......


    I didn't think so. Plus why would you want to watch a video on a 1.5 inch screen?

    because you can.

    not an endorsement, mind you, but if someone wants to void their warranty to get some extra functionality, it's their choice and their business.

    But it's NOT a solution to a non-existent problem to be pursued here...
