Step 1: Open the program. Now, load your (quicktime-playable) movie in QT.

Step 2: Go to File - Export, and choose a location for your converted movie.

Step 3: Select the iPod output format, "Movie to iPod". Hit "Save".

Step 4: Wait for it to encode, and when it's done, drag the file to iTunes, from where you can move it to your iPod.
