Hi I was wondering if someone could tell me if it is possible to convert mp4 files so that they are compatible with iPhone ( lower the quality of the video ) without losing any of the added information...

I have been using an application called "Visual Hub" and I converted some .mov files to .mp4 but forgot to choose the quality for iPhone.

I have been adding a lot of information to the videos:
- Artist
- Episode ID
- Episode list
- Genre
- TV show
- etc
And there are 78 videos, so you can understand if I don't want to do it all over again :P

I'm using a Macbook ( Leopard 10.5.8 ) and iTunes 9... having a iPhone 3G

So do you guys have any ideas on how to convert .mp4 files for iPhone without losing all the information

Thanks for your answer and your time

Not sure if it will work for your specific needs but I would give Handbrake (http://handbrake.fr/) a try.

Yeah, I already have that application :P
I tried and it did leave out some things but that was only the things that I could have done again within 5 min :(

In case anyone is confused: The application I am already using ( VisualHub ) can also make iPhone compatible .mp4 files so I am not in search for any iPhone video converter..... only one that can help me with my specific problem :D ( Read the first post ( the thread owner ) )

Doesn't iTunes itself do this?

I just drug an MP4 video file into iTunes, went under the Advanced menu (I could have right-clicked) and chose "Create iPod or iPhone version" (or "Create iPad or Apple TV version") as needed. It then creates another copy that is auto-sized to whichever version you want (you can then delete the "old" one in iTunes).

As far as I know you could select all 78 MP4, choose to create iPhone versions (which would probably happen overnight), then delete the "old" ones and boom there ya go.

You can give Xilisoft video converter a shot, they finally came out with a Mac version, and they have ipod/iphone format settings in there that will convert whatever you pull in there for what you select.
