    iTune alternatives for syncing music to iPod classic?

    Are there any alternative programs that can be used to sync music and video to an iPod classic, or am I stuck forever with iTunes?

    appears no video with das monkey:

    It is possible to sync certain iPods without iTunes installed. The iPod touch, iPhone, iPod classic, and iPod nano 3rd/4th generation all require certain iTunes components to be installed to sync to them. These files are usually located at C:\Program Files\Common Files\Apple\Mobile Device Support and you could uninstall iTunes as long as you kept the files at the location above. However, there are disadvantages to not keeping iTunes – for example, you can't update the device firmware or restore it without iTunes. You will also not be able to sync pictures or video without iTunes since MediaMonkey currently does not handle these file types.

    Thanks for the heads up. Since I joined the gym and discovered that all the equipment there has iPod docks and can play iPod videos onto the large screens each piece of equipment has, video is vital. One ep of South Park = a 20 minute run session!
