Any video currently on a computer can be transferred to and watched on an iPod nano. The only catch is converting the video to a format that the digital video player can recognize. You can convert them with iTunes or a variety of free conversion programs.
Open iTunes and drag the video file into the main window to import it.
Click the video to select it. Then click the "Create iPod or iPhone Version" in the "Advanced" menu. Repeat for each video you need to convert.
Plug the iPod nano into the computer.
Drag the video file to the iPod nano icon on the left-bar, then click "Sync."
Using a Third-party Program
Download and install a video conversion program. For example, Videora is both Mac and PC-compatible and specializes in converting video for the iPod nano.
Open up the program and follow the instructions for importing a video. In Videora, this means selecting which iPod model you wish to transfer to, then browsing for the converted video.
Convert the video to a supported format--in the nano this is either an .mp4, .mov or .m4v. Videora automatically converts to a supported format.
Open iTunes and drag the recently converted files to the iTunes window. They should be in the same folder as the original video file.
Plug in the iPod nano. In the video section of iTunes, drag the converted video file to the iPod nano icon in the right-side toolbar. Click "Sync" to finish transferring the files.
