There are plenty of devices on the market for converting your old clips and music to an iPod-friendly format, but just about all of them require a PC in the mix. The One-Touch Any-Media iPod Uploader (catchy name there) claims to be the first conversion tool to rip clips and music directly – no computer required.
The device converts any type of video or audio, including cassette tapes, vinyl records and old VHS tapes, directly to an iPod at the touch of a button. The converter plugs into any audio or video device equipped with RCA connections and S-Video (standard on most A/V components) with its included audio/video cables.
Just push the record button for conversion to digital MP3 (audio) or MPEG4 (video) format. Three hours of 320 x 240 resolution video content takes up around 1GB. Data can also be uploaded to a USB flash drive or USB hard drive plugged into the converters USB port.
Available in the US only as far as I can see, you can see, retailing for around $160 (around £85).
