firmware replacement for ipod 5G!

I'm fairly certain that RockBox does not support video playback for the 5G iPod. So you may want to consider that before changing the software.

I dont get it, only purchased music through iTMS is effected by the frmwr rplcmnt?
the firmware is open source. iTMS-purchased music has DRM.

you'll have to look into whether video plays back... definitely anything with DRM will not playback.

how hard is it to convert flac or ogg to formats the ipod already uses.

I don't think I'd fuck with the OS for something that's only going to save me one short step in the chain.

It's bloody hard if you don't want to pay for it. One song at a time, very slow using trial versions of software...any recommendations for a free batch .ogg to MP3 converter?

I use a batch converter for flac....I don't even download ogg files....

typically I don't really fuck with lossless cause it takes up so much room on my hard drive.

the flac converter I use is xACT but I don't know if they make a windows version.
