I regularly convert movies from DVD for my ipod - so I've got MANY movies available for my ipod. We're looking for a portable DVD Player for our 2 kids - they need something bigger than the iPod Screen. However, I don't want to drag DVDs around. While there are a few DVD players that integrate the iPod, they are a little pricey for us. However, some of the cheaper ones do have A/V inputs. I'm wondering if I can play a movie on my ipod and use those A/V inputs to feed the iPod movie to the portable DVD Player screen. I've read about connecting the iPod to a TV - using a camcorder-type a/v cable with a three-plug yellow/red/white RCA connection at one end and a three-banded eighth-inch (3.5mm) A/V plug at the other. You need to change the video settings and supposedly the iPod will run to the TV. There are great instructions at: http://www.oreillynet.com/pub/a/mac/2005/11/18/video-ipod.html (Haven't tried it yet, but I'm assuming this works!). So, I'm wondering if I could use a similar camcorder-type cable to hook up the iPod to a portable DVD player with A/V inputs. Has anyone done this? What is needed? And does the portable DVD player need to accept certain types of files?
