    If you already have video in a format you can watch on your computer, you can probably drag them to iTunes, and then depending on which format it is, you might be able to "convert selection to iPod" from the iTunes menu.

    I had some video that iTunes wouldn't convert, so I had to pay for Quicktime Pro, which then converted the videos. This is what you may need for DV from the camcorder.

    I don't know if you're on a Mac or Windows, but for DVD on a Mac, use Handbrake. It will rip a DVD straight to a file that can be put in iTunes and onto your iPod.
