Well, I've been experimenting with Ubuntu for about a week now and I love it! The thing is, I only have 30gb partitioned for it. I want to make it my main OS. Anyway, the only thing that might stop me is if I can't play my iTunes videos that I have on my ipod. Is there any software that I can use that will let me view my iPod videos on Ubuntu? If there is, please include the terminal prompt (IDK what the real name is). Thanks!

there is no ubuntu program, sorry, but there are programs fr windows that can convert itunes purchased videos and songs and convert them to normal versions that can be played on anything.

From what I hear, all the ipod models work on Ubuntu except for the ipod touch.

Actually i searched this kind of program (http://www.removing-drm.com/media-converter/) for a long time, and i tried wondershare media converter (http://www.removing-drm.com/media-converter/)last week which made me excited for its high fast conversion speed and excellent output quality.recommend this :popcorn:
