    This is driving me crazy.

    I have my videos just included in iPhoto and I went to sync some of my albums, some of which have videos, to my new iPad 2 and it keeps saying it can't sync because they cannot be played on the iPad.

    They won't sync even after I manually added a couple of the listed videos to iTunes.

    They WILL sync to my iPhone 4 and play fine, and WILL play on iTunes, iPhoto, and QuickTime.

    I sent it through Handbrake and it worked, but I much rather have an easier fix than sending 600+ videos through Handbrake.

    These videos have not been edited at all and come straight from the iPhone 4.

    Why would videos taken with my iPhone 4 not sync to my iPad 2? iPad 2 does accept 720p videos right?

    Well I couldn't find zilch on this so I have a massive handbrake queue up.

    Time to get a drink.

    Old thread, but I'm having the exact same problem with videos shot on my iPhone 4S and transferring them to my iPad 1 via iPhoto. Works fine with my iPad 2, but when I try to sync with my iPad 1 I get a prompt that states that the format isn't supported on my iPad ... odd problem.

    The stupid thing about this whole issue is that I used the app PhotoSync to send the same videos from my 4S to my iPad 1. That worked fine. Clearly a bug with iTunes ...
