    Re: iPod not playing MP4 movies

    I have recently got the entire first season of "frustrated men" . I converted it to mp4 and associated it to itunes. I can play the files in itunes but when I move to transfer them to my iphone, some incompatibility issues appeared and says that the movies cannot be transferred because iphone does not support that video format.

    Is it true that we can't transfer the files to iPhone .. What's wrong going on with the mpeg-4?? Do you have some suggestion , why it is not working?

    Well, Right click on your itunes window and click "Convert selection for iPod". Well it must be a right format but it bitrate must be wrong.

    Re: iPod not playing MP4 movies

    The videos require to be made into an iPod/iPhone Version. You can go through the guidelines suggested below :

    1- Import the video which you need into iTunes through the File>Add to Library
    2- Choose the Video you just Imported in the Movies tab. (If you already running with the video in iTunes then you can skip the first step)
    3- Click on the Advanced menu and then choose "Create iPod/iPhone Version"

    You also can go through the attached image below...

    There are so many converters are available on the internet to download and convert the files in appropriate format but you need to download the converter that could be used to convert any video files in mp4 video file ..

    • Download mp4 converter
    • Click on the "select files" button..
    • Click on the "convert" button spaecified..
    • Click the button "copy to iPod"
    Select the batch conversion mode to save time and convert your all of the video libraries using single click !!!!!
