Videos recorded with iOS (your iPod 5) have the extension "MOV", but they are normal "MP4" (containing H.264 and AAC). Which means that you can change the extension to "MP4" and they will be playable on Windows. In this case (recorded on iOS and with the extension "MOV") it is not necessary to convert these files. Same for "M4V" and "M4H" (other extensions ...


I have the same Issue and was a long time in contact with Apple Developers over the Apple Bugreporter. At the moment there is no "fine" way to delete the "Others" Memory on your Device. My Bug is marked as Dublicate - so we only can hope for an Apple Solution. I'll stay tuned and but here some news (if there are some)
