I'm having a large amount of problems trying to find a program for OS X that will convert from XviD to H.264 or MPEG-4. I've tried ffmpegX and iPSP; neither work.

What else is there to convert XviD to iPod-compatible formats?

ffmpegx should work for you. One of the guys on the forum here has a great write up on
Thanks for the plug Wrxified.

A lot of people are having problems still and I finally realized that it has to do with the new FfmpegX version 0.0.9t. For some reason I receive this error message in Quicktime when trying to playback the mpeg4 videos that it creates:

Code:
QuickTime cannot open the file: "xxxxxxx.ff.mp4"
an invalid sample description was found in the movie (-2041)
I'm using the same settings on the same videos as I tested on my other computer, but it is running 0.0.9s, not t.

I can't seem to find the .9s version to download so I don't know what to tell people now. Somebody just released a video ipod preset that I will look into.

P.S. I'm a wrx driver as well.

I just found the -s version for download. The method described in my tutorial above works perfectly with it. I have no idea why the files don't work with Quicktime/iTunes in the new -t version.

You can get it at:

Don't try to encode in h.264 with FFmpegX

I've been using mpeg4 encoding and that works fine for me. Just set it to psp.
