    Hi everyone,
    Im really having a problem gettin this movie to my ipod, its an avi file, Ive downloaded Handbrake and tried with it to convert it, but all in vain. the file is converted to MPEG-4 something but now i cnt get it to itunes. i can't figure out whats wrong, Maybe I'm not using Handbroken the right way.
    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Take that movie and convert it into MP4 with Videora (Highly recommended video converting program) then drag and drop the movie into your movies section. It should work fine after that.

    You don't have to drag and drop if you have "move to itunes library when finished" checked off.

    i feel that handbrake is definitely better if you know what you are doing, take a look into it and learn a bit

    Handbrake is super easy for basic stuff. Its not to hard to use it to rip a DVD to a high quality movie file.

    Just click "source" then "video file" and select your file. The click output and put it in a directory with a name. Then on the profiles, click ipod touch/iphone, then click convert. Then you wait for it to finish and drag it into itunes.
