    i thought MP4 was the correct type but its not syncing on my phone. it shows up in itunes and my sync music is checked off. the vids are ripped dvds converted.

    Did you rip it at a too high resolution for the iPhone? Are you using Handbrake, did you select iPhone/iPod Touch format?

    They make HandBrake for windows too by the way.

    Best app out there. ITS FREE

    Most of my MP4's do work, but some say they aren't supported to be played on my iPhone. I'm looking for an answer as well.

    You may have to make sure it's a .m4v file, and not .mp4.

    I think it was handbrake that I used at the time...
    But for the iPhone, h.264 encoding worked the best.

    Some of the time I had to check off the "add ipod atom" box, which made it viewable on the ipod and I think iPhone. Anyone confirm this?

    ^^^good advice on HandBrake; I've ripped over 75 DVD movies and stored them on my external HD, and switch them out after I've watched them on a weekly basis. Also, check out the TV shows via iTunes, they're pretty cheap at $1.99...:cool:

    Have you tried changing the file type drop down in the Open dialogue box to "Show all *.*"? (Windows Joy)

    I think you might have to use Handbreak with the actual disc (ie. not VIDEO_TS).
