You need to enter at music.aol.com with the default profile no safari, then you chose your artist and when u see the list of video, change to safari profile, then click the video and should work, if u enter to aol.music.com with safari profile u get the upgrade message.......TheJosher said:For some reason user agent switcher doesn't want to work for me. I get a 'need to update your browser' message, click 'continue anyway', and I get the flash version. I tried all the mac browsers.. all the same.
The user agent is getting sent, though. I checked it out on a couple sites.
Any other sites that have something simaler that would be easier to download?
You are so right. The video is great but the sound sucks! I don't think I am going to bother doing any more of them. Guess I will save up my money and buy them from iTunes. I wish once they were purchased we could share. Even splitting the cost with one other person would have been great.Again, I can't stress enough that the sound quality of the AOL .movs are *crap*. Utter crap. And this is before any translation to iPod format. If its a song/video you really like, spend the dough to buy it from iTunes when it becomes available. [/B]
they come up to about 20 or so MB in itpod format.tuxthepenguin00 said:thats awesome thanks a lot great tutorial
edit- i just noticed that these videos are ~74 megs, thats HUGE, no way do i want to take up that much space on my ipod with music videos, my question is, after u convert them to ipod format, do they get to regular managable size?
nevermind not worth it
I too noticed the same thing, but I got Nero recode to work with 7/10 videos that I downloaded with AOL using net transport. (The remaining 3/10 videos are the ones that use rtsp://)dyzfnctional said:I tried to use nero recode but keep getting error msg:
Nero Recode 2 has encountered a problem and needs to close.
-send error report
it works fine with other files but the ones i get from aol via Net Transporter 1.92....why?

A few of them won't convert at all for some odd reason.
1.) Start Nero Recode
2.) Select "Recode DVDs and Video to Nero Digital"
3.) Click on "Import Files"
4.) Select the file(s) you wish to encode, Add Title, then Close
5.) This wil close the "Import Title" window and take you back to the main program.
6.) Click "More >>" on the bottom left
7.) Under "Nero Digital Profile", select "Standard"
8.) Uncheck "Fit to target:"
9.) Under "Video Quality", use the slider to select the bitrate. I use 1.48.
10.) Click on "Settings" in the middle of the main window.
11.) Select "Custom Profile", 128kbit/s, 44100 or 48000 Hz, then "OK"
12.) Back at the main program window, click "Next"
13.) Select your output folder
14.) Click on the Nero Digital Settings icon
15.) Click "Quality/Speed", change "Maximum MV range:" to -32 to 31.5
16.) Click "Advanced", uncheck "4 motions vectors" and "Bidirectional VOP"
17.) Click "Burn"
This should result in a perfectly smooth video that looks really good on the iPod. I currently have about 100 music videos and 2 full length movies that works beautifully.
If you try to convert a file and it fails, please try another one before posting that this method does not work.
