I have been taking video with my iPhone 4 recently, but it's been windy so I get a lot of wind noise. What's the best way to go about reducing the wind noise, and/or how can I make a microphone cover/windscreen for the iPhone 4?

Unexpected Holiday Gift: Someone got me a Zune HD! Problem. I already own an ipod Nano and know next to nothing about Zune. What can the Zune do that my nano can't? How do you use yours? What does the Zune do well? Any tips or trips or strange things/ 3rd party applications I can use?

I have a substantial amount of anime that I'd like to watch, but a less-than-perfect system for doing it. Pretty much all of it is in .mkv files (h.264 video and AAC audio) with subtitles, and I'd like to transcode them to a format that's playable on either my iPhone or my PS3 with subtitles intact. I've tried both handbrake and VLC, and I either get 1) no subtitles in handbrake or 2) encoder errors in VLC. So, hive mind, what am I doing wrong here?

Is there a way to manually upload photos to an iPod Video? i.e. without syncing and erasing the files already on my iPod? I already manually manage music and video on it. I'd take any solutions for Windows or Mac OS.

Audio and video are out of sync on mp4s downloaded from Google Video about 80% of the time. Is there anything simple that I can do about this? OSX, by the way, and it's mostly for watching on my iPod.

TV show episodes ripped to iPod via Handbrake (aka MediaFork) are dropping audio 3/4 of the way into the file. Arrrrrgh! Has anyone found a reliable way of overcoming it? Or do you have a better program to recommend? [more inside]

I would like to make several episodes of an internet show i (legally) downloaded play continuously on my 5G Ipod. Normally, when a video, finishes, it stops and returns to the video list menu. I don't want it to do that, i want it to play the next episode automatically, without having to manually select it to play. Can anyone help?

I regularly use ffmpeg to encode videos (from mpeg2 to mpeg4) for my ipod. I've been doing this for nearly a year with no problems. Now, every time I start an encode, my system is suddenly under a lot of pressure - I can't use any other application. If I go into the windows task manager and set the priority to 'below normal', all is fine again.
Anyone have any idea why this change might have occured, or any idea how I can get around it (preferably without using task manager)? [more inside]

Are all P2P file sharting networks evil and infect your computer with wiruses and spyware?
Also, does anyone know how to copy DVDs (that I have legally purchased and copy them to my video iPod?

So, I think I'll get me one of them new iPods that plays video. Maybe.
What would definitely push me over the edge would be if there was a way to get TV shows off my Tivo and onto the iPod. What's the easiest/cheapest/simplest way to accomplish this? I have a Powerbook G4 and my wife has a Windows XP laptop, if that helps. And while we're on the subject... [more inside]
