How to hide Video files in Ipod

I have 160 GB i pod and have'nt tried on any other.May be you should check.



1)Go to settings in your ipod.
2)than click in "Main menu"
3)Uncheck "videos" & check "Movies"
Now your ipod will only show you your movies list and not TV shows or Music videos list.

If you know how to put your videos in Tv shows or music videos list ,than there is no problem for you. And if not,than try this method.

4)connect your ipod to your computer & open itunes.
5)select your ipod's movies list(under "devices").
6)Right click on the file which you want to hide and click on "Get info".
7)click on "video" tab and than select the video kind(either tv show or music video).
8)Than click OK.

Repeat step 1-3 if you want to see your personal videos.

Enjoy!!!!!!!!

This is great advice for all those who need p0rn so badly, that they're carrying it on an iPod! lol

Seriously, why would you need to hide your files if it's not that? Just wondering.

You're close. Preventing your children from watching adult movies (sex, violence, swearing etc) when they're using your iPod is one perfectly reasonable explanation.

True... the problem however, our kids are smarter than us and will find the videos anyway. If you don't want them to see 'em, don't have them on the iPod when in their posession.

Your wives or gf's OTOH, aren't likely to figure it out. haha

guys, there is a muc better way to do this...

iDiscrete in the App Store:

http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/idisc...370574724?mt=8

it "password protects" by registering a defined touch sequence on a "Loading" screen. very slick, as i've always thought asking for a password seemed very suspicious... icon and shown name (iD) is meant to cover the real purpose of the app. this is as covert as you can get, since Apple will not allow an app to change its icon/name.
there is, however, a jailbreak version of this app on Rock, i think it's called iDiscrete JB. it lets you choose your own icon/name, or hide it as an Apple app (like Stocks or Contacts for example)

iPhone/touch apps do not run on a clickwheel iPod.



64GB iPad 3, 64GB iPhone 5s, 1G 16GB touch, 4G & 6G Silver 16GB nano, 5G 60GB iPod, 1G AppleTV, 2G ATV, Late 2013 27" iMac

I would think there is a similar screen lock on the classic as well, check under Extras/


iPod nano, iPod nano (Second Generation), iPod nano (4th generation), iPod nano (5th generation), and Fifth Generation iPod (also known as iPod with video) include Screen Lock, which allows you to set a 4-digit combination to prevent someone else from using your iPod while it is not attached to a computer. When an iPod is locked, you must enter the combination to unlock the screen. This feature is different from the Hold switch in that the Hold switch only prevents iPod from turning on accidentally—not keeping snoops out.

Here's an easy way to hid picture and video on your ipod touch or ipad. This method even allows you to upload the pictures and video directly using ftp or wifi. It makes the videos and pictures password protected but leaves the rest of the ipod open for anyone (like your kids) to use.

Again, this is the iPod classic/5G video forum. iPod touch and iPad apps, tips and tricks do not work on the click wheel iPods.
