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
