    Default Cant click and drag movies over to iTunes 11

    Ever since I updated iTunes I could can not click and drag a mp4 movie file over to it. Some mp4 files work but others dont. One in particular that doesn't is a 5GB 1080p movie that I just downloaded. Is it because of the huge file size or what? I also can't manually add it by clicking add files.

    I've dragged movies in up to about 3GB with no issues. I don't think 5GB would be a problem.

    In the Movies category, look under the "Personal Videos" section. They sometimes appear in there.

    The issue can be caused by the codec of MP4 files. iTunes supports MP4 files with special codec. I know a good way to solve cannot add video to iTunes issue. You can try it if you prefer.
