Default Music and Podcasts on Captivate

I have been using an iPod touch for my music and podcasts for a while, and am wondering about what it would take to get the music and couple of movies I have over to my phone. What is the best way to go about that. A few questions I have specifically are:
  • Most of my music is in the Apple format. Does that need to be converted or can the Android player handle that? What about the movies?
  • Is there any way to get my playlists converted over as well?
  • What about podcasts? Would there be a separate app for those?

This should answer your questions:
How to Play Purchased iTunes Music on an Android Smartphone? - Android Help Center
M4V files

Basically, you should be able to play your itunes music/videos as long it's not DRM'd. As for Podcast, I use ACast. There are quite a few podcatchers on the Market. The problem I have with most of them (including ACast) is that it's difficult to add feeds. A lot of the time I have to track down the RSS url and enter in manually.
