iPods skip with large files

This is a minor annoyance, but hey… iPods seem to have problems with large bookmarkable files. Specifically, they start skipping, which makes the playback annoying.

Large non-bookmarkable files: no problems. So it’s something to do with keeping the bookmark in sync with the file. *sigh*.

So, I either need to split those 1-hour podcasts into things less than about 32MB, or convert them to a lower quality level. Anyone got a decent command-line tool to do this that I can plug into iPodder

My name is Robert Watkins. I am a software developer and have been for over 18 years now. I currently work for people, but my opinions here are in no way endorsed by them (which is cool; their opinions aren’t endorsed by me either). My main professional interests are in Java development, using Agile methods, with a historical focus on building web based applications. I’m also a Mac-fan and love my iPhone, which I’m currently learning how to code for. I live and work in Brisbane, Australia, but I grew up in the Northern Territory, and still find Brisbane too cold (after 16 years here). I’m married, with two children and one cat. My politics are socialist in tendency, my religious affiliation is atheist (aka “none of the above”), my attitude is condescending and my moral standing is lying down.
