Video On iPod

Recommended Posts

I made a m4v file using Handbrake. I inserted the DVD into my laptop and made the file. I was able to import it into itunes without a problem, yet the film is not getting copied to my ipod

 

it says "The film cannot be played on this ipod"

 

what could be the reason and how do I fix this?

 

thanks

Right-click on the movie in your library and select "convert selection for ipod/iphone." It may take a while, but iTunes can convert it for you. After it's done, get info on both versions and compare the resolutions. You'll probably find that the original's is much higher.

 

If you don't mind the lower resolution, Handbrake allows you to encode directly to an iPod-friendly format. Just select the iPod/iPhone option from the panel on the right-hand side of the window.
