Can you play avi files on iPod?

Is there a way to play avi files on an iPod?

Or perhaps a conversion tool?

You cannot play AVI files on an iPod, or anything other than H264.
iSquint is free, and should do the trick:

When I read questions like this, I sometimes ask myself "Do people ever try to find the answers for themselves, or do they simply like to take shortcuts?"

Many just take shortcuts but that is what forums like this are for. He didn't ask you to go and find it for him, merely if you already had found it. He hopes to benefit from the experience of others, is that a problem.

easiest way to find out is obviously the specs page on apple's website:
http://www.apple.com/ca/ipod/specs.html

h.264/MPEG-4 (.mp4) is the only codec supported..

Man lately I've been getting really bummed about all the bashing on here, I mostly just lurk around, but half the time I post I get some sarcasm. HowEver and guytoronto are always good for a negative comment or two.

is there one that youguys would recommend more than another? I have Roxio 8, quicktime pro, hand brake and have even used isquint before. It just seems to take an awfully long time to convert and AVI inan ipod format.
