Direct to iPod Video Tool

The retailer Hammacher Schlemmer today started shipping the iRecord media converter for iPods. Claiming to eliminate the need for a computer, the device will convert audio and video from any RCA or S-video source, uploading it directly to the iPod in MP3 or MP4 format and making it immediately accessible. Hammacher also notes that any USB storage can be attached and that the device can recognize the difference between generic devices and Apple's player. Three hours of video at the recorder's native 320x240 resolution should consume 1GB of disk space, the company says. The iRecord is available for $160 from Hammacher's online store and works with all dockable iPods, though video capture requires fifth-generation models.
