    Are you able to play it in QuickTime? If not, maybe something went wrong with the encoding and the file is messed up.

    Hmm... maybe the file is bigger than the max specs that can be imported and that's why it won't add to the library. Does it exceed any of these?

    MPEG-4 video, up to 2.5 Mbps, 640 by 480 pixels, 30 frames per sec., Simple Profile with AAC-LC audio up to 160 Kbps, 48 kHz, stereo audio in .m4v, .mp4, and .mov file formats

    And maybe this guide I use when I use Handbrake will help...
