You can download many free videos in the popular P2P programme Limewire. The videos can be downloaded in Limewire in all kinds of popular formats like ASF, ASX, AVI, MOV, MPEG, RAM, RM, WMV, VOB and so on. But then, iPod can playback only in MP4 and H264 video formats.
If you download the videos in MP4 or H264 format, you can simply drag and drop the videos from the Limewire library into your iTunes library and from there you can sync it to your iPod.
