In itunes, select menu "Edit" then "Preferenes" then "General" tab.

Be sure there is a check in the box "Movies" -- I think it defaults to unchecked.

Drag your mp4 file into the Movies section of your library (Movies will appear under Library once you check the box).

When you select your iPhone device, go to the "Video" tab, then slide down to the "Movies", check the box "Sync movies" and select whatever movie you want to put on the iPhone.

If you converted a youtube video to mp4 (I used IMTOO converter) and put it into the movies directory, if it ends up in the music area, right click the name, then "get info" then "Options" and set the "Media kind" to "Movie"

If it's not MOVIE it will not apear under the movies area.

PS: Don't need to unlock the iphone to do any of this. Just need a good converter from FLV to MP4, and a way to select the right resolution, 320x240.

Hope this helps.

How to convert AVI to MP4 for iPhone on Windows 7?


Q: I have a collection of Anime, movie, etc. and then I have an iPhone. Most of the anime and movie are in Avi format, now I’m wondering if and how I can convert these avi videos to Mp4 for playback on my iPhone? (By the way, I have a pc running on Windows 7), Thanks!

A: If you have an iPhone, you may have encountered the same problem. You have bunch of movies which you have downloaded from internet, and you want to pull out your iPhone to watch a few clips when you’re bored on the road or if you have extra time between classes. While your iPhone only accepts videos in MP4 or MOV format, but most of your downloaded movies are in AVI format. And that is the question- how to put downloaded movies in AVI format to your iPhone so you can enjoy them on the go? Basically, it is not difficult to make it. What you have to do is to convert avi file to mp4 for playback on your iPhone.

Things You'll Need
An iPhone
Downloaded movies or videos in AVI format
AVI to MP4 Converter
A PC running on Windows OS (including Windows7 OS)

A PC running on Windows OS (including the latest Windows7)
For those windows users, there are various AVI to MP4 converters, both free and paid, such as free Handbreak, but for windows 7 users, like me, the only one I had a good luck is Wondershare DVD Converter Ultimate, which is handy for converting AVI to MP4 files and transferring these AVI files for iPhone. Now, let’s check out it together.

Steps to convert AVI to MP4 on windows 7 for your iPhone:


Step 1: Free download this Wondershare DVD Converter Ultimate, install and run it.

Step 2: Add AVI files

Loading AVI movies will be your first step. Click "Add Video" or just drag & drop your AVI files to the file list directly, you can easily add AVI files.

Step 3: Select MP4 as output format

Select iPhone video MP4 as output format from the categorized output formats list in "Profile" drop-down list and specify the output directory to save your converted files in "Output" drop-down list.

Step 4: Start to convert AVI to MP4 file
After you select MP4 format, hit the Start button to convert AVI to MP4 files. And all the tasks will be done at fast speed and high quality.

Step 5: Transfer MP4 files to iPhone
The last step is to transfer converted MP4 files to iPhone. Of course, you can use iTunes which is free but it only provides one way solution to transfer files from PC to iPhone. There is another option if you still want to get your iPhone files back to PC, you can use an http://www.dvd-ripper-copy.com/ipod-video-transfer.htmlhttp://www.dvd-ripper-copy.com/ipod-video-transfer.html, (it's not free with only $19.95) which can transfer files between iPhone and PC freely.

Tip:
If you want to edit your movies, such as splitting it into sveral clips, adding subtiltes, or adding watermarks etc, you can click "Edit" to make tailor-made movies as you like.

That's it, with easy steps you can convert AVI to MP4 for your iPhone. Enjoy watching movies anytime and anywhere.

But most Limewire video files are MPEG or AVI. You can use this Limewire Video Converter to convert them to iPod compatible MP4 video. I tried many video converters, and this one works best with Limewire video. It?s compatible with Windows 7 and 64 bits system. You can learn more information about it by referring to this review . Drag the video into the limewire video converter, set the profile to "iPod Video MPEG-4(*.mp4)", click start to begin the conversion.

It will take a few minutes to finish the conversion. Then drags the converted MP4 video into your iTunes library and sync the Limewire video to your iPod or iPhone, this video converter build-in an iPod transfer. You can use it to upload Limewire songs or videos to iPod if you don?t want to use iTunes. That?s all.?Enjoy my guide on putting Limewire songs and videos on iPod, Merry Christmas.

How to convert dvd movies and music videos to itunes library and to Ipod/iphone/ipad? tq


As I know iTunes and iPhone/iPod/iPad can only support MP4 video with H.264 format. So you just need to use Leawo DVD Ripper to convert your DVD to MP4 format and then sync into iPod/iPad.
