I know there are a ton of discussions involving this but I need specifics in regards to the specs. So what I am going to do is post EXACTLY what I converted the file to, and can someone please tell me where I went wrong?
Also, do I need some sort of media player app to play these videos? I tried searching for hours the other night for an app like this (thats free) compatible with 4.2.1 to no avail. It is extremely frustrating.
Also I am going to post this seperatly i think but I downloaded and app called idownloader lite. I wanted to be able to go on the internet and download a video to watch for later use offline. It says to go thr ough their browser find a video (not from youtube) and copy and paste the url to do this. but it NEVER works! Does anyone know of a website that will work with this?
The problem is my older operating system, I cant find any good apps for stuff (they need to be free unfortunatley) I wanted to get a youtube app that I could d/l video for use offline but i cant find one compatible.
Well here is the info from the video i converted, did i do this right?

Thank you for all your help, I know this is alot of work!
You may be able to get the las compatible version by:
Starting when iOS 7 was released, Apple now allows downloading the last compatible version of some apps (iOS 4.2.1 and later only)
App Store: Downloading Older Versions of Apps on iOS - Apple Club
App Store: Install the latest compatible version of an app
You first have to download the non-compatible version on your computer. Then when you try to purchase the version on your iPod you will be offered a compatible version if one exists.
