    Well, it does, but only if I sync all of the unwatched episodes of something, which I can't do (Most of Lost season 1 won't fit). So how do I sync a video playlist to the iPhone? Thanks.

    Try the "Video" tab....

    You cant sync a Video Playlist, just shows, movies, etc... or individual.

    Again, you dont create a playlist.

    I've tried the video tab... I don't see an "individual" option.
    I'm just trying to get half of a season of Lost onto the iPhone. I have enough space, but I can't sync all unwastched or anything like that. Is their a way to add each episode individually?

    You could try this, although it would affect the synching of your music library as well:

    1. Go to the "Summary" tab and check "Only sync checked items" under options
    2. Go to your music and video library and uncheck everything
    3. Go to your music and video library and only check those items which you want to add to your iphone

    Sync videos.

    In iTunes, make new playlists ("iPhone Music Videos" or "iPhone TV Shows" for example). Drag the videos/episodes you want into the new playlists. Plug in your iPhone and choose sync selected playlists in the music and video tabs choosing the playlists you want.

    Something else is going on. I have shows and videos (from iTunes) that are no longer syncing (they had previously) and I have tried a lot of syncs, with checks, without checks, watched, unwatced, all...I've quit both iTunes and the iPhone, etc.....no luck. Any ideas what I'm doing wrong?
