    I'm having a really hard time getting this video onto itunes.

    Heres the video..

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QmXExQzyBP8

    I can download the video in mpg4 format but it wont transfer to itunes. I have tried dragging it into 'movies' in itunes, file-import, file-add file to library, nothing works. any help. Here is the converter I am using...

    No, not at all, nothing happens. I try to drag it and the screen just stays solid black. When I try to 'import' or 'add file', nothing happens either.

    i suggest you use a dedicated converter... i mean those that you install on your pc/mac

    they work way better that these online ones... the catch is you have to download the flv then convert... this is what i do

    syncing

    i dont normally sync the videos as such i just import file into itunes then highlight the video and drag to the ipod touch i know it says syncing but it does not sync a whole folder therefore loosing what you had previously.
    i also set manually manage music in my itunes this way i dont loose music when i add or remove stuff.

    thats my own personal preference but others may have diffrent views.
