    Hi all. I have an iphone 3g. Can somebody tell me where am i wrong in transfering a movie video to iphone. I am doing following steps.

    1. I converted movie into mp4 format.
    2. I copied those mp4 files into the folder where all other mp3 are kept on laptop.
    3. I added folder to library in itunes.
    4. Now those mp4 files are coming in movies section in itunes.
    5. Now i synced iphone with itunes but still those files are not getting trasfered to iphone. The video section under ipod in iphone does not shows them.

    Please suggest where am i wrong?

    iPhone plays specific sizes and specifications of MP4. I would recommend downloading the free app, Handbrake (HandBrake) and using that to convert your videos specifically to iPhone format.

    Videora is another option (that works) for Windows.

    I have used both Handbrake and Videora and both applications work wonderfully.

    You might need to select the video to be synced. Under videos tab at the top, there is a movies section where you can check off which videos are to be synced. It happened to me.

    When you click on your iPhone on the left bar in iTunes, you will see a tabbed interface in the center of the iTunes window. There is a tab dedicated to videos and TV programs. At the bottom of this screen you can check a box to ask for the synchronization of videos and you have to check each movie that you want to transfer to your phone. I hope this helps.,.
