In October 2005 Apple® Computers introduced the first iPod® capable of playing videos and movies. The small, lightweight MP3 player was not only capable of holding literally thousands of songs and audio files, but it was also capable of storing videos and movies to watch on its small color screen.
For the next several months leading up to the 2005 Christmas holiday season, the Video iPod® received an abundance of media attention. It quickly became one of the hottest selling holiday gifts. Consumers loved the original iPod because it gave them the ability to carry their entire music collection with them wherever they went in one small, lightweight battery-powered device. Now, it seemed they would be able do the same with their movie collections.
There was one small problem. Unlike in the music versions, Apple® did not include an option to rip movies to play on the Video iPod. Many consumers were frustrated when they got their new Video iPods®, but didn’t have any video files to play on them.
Recognizing there would be a demand for a simple solution to this problem, a small software development company called Cucusoft Technologies introduced its first iPod video converter software just weeks after the first Video iPod® hit store shelves.
The software, called the iPod Video Converter, was an instant success. It allowed consumers to quickly and easily convert any movie to play on their Video iPod®. In addition to converting movies, it also converted files in other formats such as DivX, XVid, MOV, RM, RMVB, MPEG, WMV, AVI and others to the Video iPod format.
Although other software companies also launched similar iPod® Video converter products around this time, Cucusoft’s product was one of the most popular due to its simplicity of use. The entire process only took a few minutes. Consumers simply chose the file to convert, then pressed the “convert" button and moments later a new file is ready to upload to the Video iPod®.
The Cucusoft iPod Video Converter is economically priced at under $40. Consumers can also get a free trial of the product to make sure it is capable of converting the files they need before they actually pay for it.
