    I have some avi files that will simply not drag into the folder of iTunes for Movies. Do I have to convert them into .mov, or does iTunes do that? Is Videora the best one to use?

    Edit: I don't understand, I drag a mp4 file into the Movies folder and it finally goes, but even though I check it when I sync it, it doesn't show up in my iPhone.

    iTunes does not currently support .avi

    Have you tried using VLC?

    Hi SephirothXR, iTunes only supports video in .mp4. So you can play any mp4 video in iTunes, however, not all mp4 movie can be put on iPhone because iPhone has exact video resolution 640*480, or 480*320.

    solution: change the video resolution to fit iPhone.
