note: i just looked at all the similar threads, but nothing helped. so i've converted these videos to .mp4, to be exact it's MPEG-4 H.264 but itunes isn't syncing them to my ipod touch 1G 3.1.3 i've ever tried just adding the original video files, .avi, to the library and use itunes to convert them, but i don't get any sort of prompt or option to convert them. does anyone know how to fix this? also: i'm using winff to convert them ------------------double post merged------------------ahh, ok. i see my mistake. now this is a how-to thread before, while using winff, i converted them with the conversion set to MPEG-4 and the device preset at MPEG-4 H.264 you may be thinking, well no sh*t, on0bi. that's what it's supposed to be. well, yes and no. as a good man once posted: so if you're using winff to convert videos, set the conversion to, and i kid you not i cannot believe i missed it, ipod-itunes...and the preset to iphone widescreen, if that's indeed the device you'd like to convert to. so, lesson learned i suppose.
