Will software upgrades(or mods even) possibly allow the ipod to play videos like .mpg or rm?

cause these apple approved formats sound like they really suck quality wise

hmmm... suck? I disagree. H.264 is one of the best codecs I've seen, small file sizes too. Just takes long to encode. Visit apple's Aperture site and watch those videos... only 80 or 90k/sec and look great. And mp4 is not too shabby either.

I don't know how upgradable the firmware is, but I heard it can be updated to support new codecs.
