Yesterday I downloaded Moyea video converter to convert swf (flash) files to mp4 for my iPod. The converter works fine and the videos come out in excellent quality when I try playing them on my iTunes, but when I put them on my iPod it only played audio and showed a black screen.

Does anyone know what I might be doing wrong?

I just let itunes do the conversion from my H264 quicktime files and it's always worked fine. Can itunes do it for flash stuff, too?

Sounds like you have a codec issue.
I use handbrake for converting to mp4
and then try this Perian

Hope it helps.

Also, go to your profile and change your full name. Forum rules.
