I recently got an iPod 8Gb Nano, and I wanted to convert some free streamed video files that I had so that I could watch them on the iPod.

I already owned Applian’s Replay A/V software which comes with replay converter. This immediately should provide me with the capability to convert the streamed video to the iPod format. The problem was, it wouldn’t. I looked through the log files and saw the error message:

ERROR: Could not open required DirectShow codec wmv9dmod.dll

Which I thought was weird since I should have the codecs installed. At any rate, I went to the MPlayer download site and got the Windows essential codecs. After moving them to the main Replay A/V folder, everything worked fine.
