You can convert your whole set of DVDs that have collected over the years into iPod compatible formats without losing any quality at all and without the need for iTunes at all! This simple software is a one-stop solution to all your audio/video conversion needs. Since all these formats work with iPhone and iPad, you’re good to go!

Xilisoft’s DVD to iPod Converter will convert DVD format to the following formats:

  1. MP4
  2. MP3
  3. AAC
  4. M4A


The converter supports a very extensive list of media profiles and you can choose any one of them or multiple output formats. You can also create your own custom output profiles which means you can rip scenes from the whole DVD and convert only that portion. Not to mention, the conversion is blazingly fast since they make use of NVIDIA GPUs (if you have a CUDA capable NVIDIA Graphics Card installed in your PC).

Once you have the converted DVD, you can transfer it to your iPod from within this softwipod_dvd_video_converterare without the need of iTunes. This will save you the effort of first syncing the converted video files to your iTunes and then transferring them to your iPod.

Did I mention that other then just converting the whole DVD video, you can also rip only the music of the DVD and convert it as a music file and transfer it to your iPod. You can also capture still photos from the video and save them in a picture format (BMP, GIF, JPEG AND PNG output formats are supported).

Besides iPod touch, the following devices are supported by Xilisoft DVD to iPod converter:

  • iPod
  • iPod nano
  • iPod classic
  • iPod shuffle
  • iPod touch
  • iPhone
  • iPhone 3G
  • iPhone 3GS
  • Apple TV

This literally means that you will not need any other video or audio converter ever again.
