    .mp4 movie won't sync to my iPod Touch
    That's basically it. "Sync movies" is checked, the other movies sync but not this one. It's a file I converted, but it's in .mp4 format, so why won't it work? I've tried dragging it manually into the iPod without success. I've restored the iPod too.

    Help?

    Thanks.

    Specs:
    Mid-2012 MBP (16GB, 1TB HD), Monoprice 24-inch second monitor, iPhone 5s 32GB, iPad Air 2 64GB
    1. MP4 and MPEG-4 are, in fact, the same thing.

    2. Like other codecs, MPEG has variables including video bitrate, video size, audio bitrate and so on. Thus, even when a file has the extension that should allow it to work, iTunes may not recognize it if it doesn't meet expected specs in some way.

    3. Consequently, a converter program with iPod presents is your best bet for success. iTunes itself can usually do this.
