    Hi Orbi!

    Getting movies on your iPhone is really easy. Just takes a little time to get the file into the right format.

    Here is a link to a simple guide:

    I use xvid4psp. It has a setting especially for the iphone. it's quick and does a nice job.
    After you encode the video just drag it into the movie section of iTunes and it will show up for you to sync.

    Hi jerome

    Download 'handbrake' for mac or pc whatever your format. Use handbrake to decrypt and format your DVD for your iPhone and save it to your desktop. Open iTunes select your movies section and just drag and drop the file in. Your done.

    have you been able to get the movie into iTunes?

    if so, all you need to do is right-click on it, and do this:

    once you got it converted to mp4 what did you do to get it onto your iphone cause the movie I am trying to put on my 3g shows up in itunes but won't sync to my 3g

    are you sure it's in an ipod/iphone friendly format?

    if not, try what i recommended a few posts up.

    if that still doesn't work, my guess is maybe you have your iphone set to not sync videos or maybe only "checked" videos...

    ok i tried that and it says it cannot convert file because it is already in proper format what am I doing wrong here. The file is only like 5 minutes long so I know it isn't too big.

    are the files .mp4s or .m4vs? if so, then you won't have to convert them. just make sure you have selected to "sync movies" in your iphone's options tabs.
