I have a question about this too. I have most of my videos in as .wmv files and i know those won't work, but i had one video that is in .mov format and i tried to sync it to my iPhone and i got a message that said "this video will not play on your iPhone". Kinda blew me away that a quicktime video won't play on the iPhone.

So what formats is the iPhone taking exactly?

I imported some avi (divx) files into iMovie. It was going to take forever to actually export the new file according to the specs below. So, I just grabbed the .mov files from ~/Media directory under the project and synced it. And, it worked!

the best thing to do is download iSQUINT
its for free, just google it
thats only for MACs tho
and when you open it, it'll ask you to add a video, you add it
and then there is check mark you can put
"convert for TV"
"convert for iPOD"
you click on "convert for iPOD"
and also it asks u for quality
and there is a check mark you put for "H.264 encoding"
after that you click start, wait couple min and your video is ready,
I already have two music videos on my ipod and they're working just fine,
at first when i converted one of the videos without checking "h.264 encoding"
i didn't have picture but i had audio, then i figured out the problem
i hope it helps

later
