so last night i synced my phone with all my pictures, and i wanted to add some various videos/movies also.

unfortunately, i have never really used iTunes that much and i wasn't able to get my videos into iTunes to sync it to the iPhone. i tried looking up directions online to add videos to my library but it just said to drag and drop and when i try that it doesn't let me. i tried going to file > add file to library but when i would open the videos, it wouldn't be in the library anywhere.

so i come to you, everythingicafe forums....please help me so i can watch my movies on my phone at work :cool:

Windows or Mac? Believe there is 'Handbreak' for Mac and then Videora for PC to convert them to valid iPhone format ... h264 of flavors

yeah if you have a mac, handbreak is a must. Rip all your DVDs to your computer then right to your phone. Only thing is it takes up a lot of room on your hardrive if you do a lot so watch out. But I love being able to watch the honeymooners and Abbott and Costello on my phone.

Handbrake is awesome. I finally downloaded it over the weekend, then spent the rest of the day putting DVD's onto my iTunes. Only bummer is it takes about 45 minutes per DVD
