I've been converting dvd's using Aimrsoft, and the program has been working properly. However, when I try to load the videos into iTunes, it won't go into the library. There is no error message or anything.. I click on 'add file to library' and nothing happens at all. It is strange because they are proper MPEG-4 files. Thanks in advance for any of your help. Any people have this kind of problem?

Check your music library instead of your videos library.

iTunes may be interpreting the videos as music videos instead of movies.

Go to file menu and select import. then select your .mp4 file. It should show up in your movie section on iTunes. Then select file menu again and select get info. another window should pop up. Select video tab and from here you can chose if you want your video to show up in Movies/Music Videos/or TV shows. You can also add cover art here. anyways hope this helps.:laugh2:

Same thing is happening to me. I had several .MP4s of Robot Chicken and only 1 of them shows up in my 'Movies' section. The other ones refuses to load or even show up. My .MP4 of the South Park movie I ripped won't show up either, ugh.

H.264 Codec?

I tried converting some DVDs into the MP4 format using the CUCUsoft software and they would not load. I had accidentally specified the H.264 codec for higher quality. There was no way to tell the MP4 used H.264. I reconverted them and bammo no problem.

BTW the H.264 codec is a realtime+ conversion even with dual core. They looked awesome on Quicktime, but the iPhone wouldn't take them...

This also works

For cases when you can view the video in iTunes, but it doesn't show up in the checkbox list to sync with the iPhone...

In iTunes, select the video.
Choose Advanced > Convert Selection for iPod

Once converted (may take awhile depending on size and compression), you should be able to select and sync.

Choose Advanced > Convert Selection for iPod

This option is quite slow. I use bigasoft total video converter to convert the mp4 to ipod version then transfer to ipod.

Works fast and perfect, saves a lot of time

Your software need to update, I now use brosvideo product conversion other formats to m4v very clear. It can break DRM

I had the same problem and i figured it out. Go to the "Home Movies" tab within the movies tab of your iTunes and it should be there.
