Getting video to an ipod

For some reason I can’t get iTunes to work. At all. I’m gonna format and reinstall windows in a couple of days anyway so I’ll have a clean slate to work out the problems with, but in the meantime I wonder if there’s any program/utility that will put video files on an ipod and make them playable besides iTunes. Media Monkey has me covered for music files but sadly video is not what the otherwise excellent Media Monkey is about.

My searches have all turned up nothing except for ipod video converters, which isn’t exactly what I’m looking for. I have properly formatted files already, I just need something to transfer them with.
