Thread: Can't get video into iTunes
10-08-2007, 07:23 PM #1Can't get video into iTunes
I cannot import or add video to my library in iTunes. I tried from the menu and tried dragging the file in and iTunes just does nothing and nothing happens. Also, I downloaded some video from iTunes and when I try and sync the ipod touch it says it can't play the video even though I got it from iTunes.
Very frustrating. I've searched for a couple days and nothing has come up. I even reinstalled iTunes with still no luck.
oh and while I'm typing this on my wife's macbook pro that we just got the screen is flickering in and out like the macbook light when it is asleep. Looks like there is a light sensor in the keyboard or something because when I hold my hand over the right side of the keyboard the screen goes dark. Wierd....

Ok, I found the solution. I had to restore my iPod even though its 4 days old to its orginal settings and firmware. This took care of the issue and I'm now able to import video into iTunes and get it onto the iPod.

What file format was the video in?
I'm having the same problem with this when I rip dvd's using mac the ripper.
I think mine is a VOB file?

Needs to be in an ipod friendly format which i dont think VOB is - try converting to H264 instead
