transferring videos to my 5th generation iPod (with video) on Ubuntu

This is more for my own notes, so that I remember if I have to do this again.
  1. HandBrake to transcode the videos to a format appropriate for playback on the iPod
  2. install gtkpod
    • sudo apt-get install gtkpod
  3. install support for m4v files in gtkpod
    • sudo apt-get install libmp4v2-0
  4. transfer the files by drag and drop onto the iPod in gtkpod
