The annoying thing is it should import the .MOV videos?? Right?? The files open and play with Quicktime player on my Macbook and when I add the same .MOV files to itunes 10.5 on my Windows 7 machine, no problems occur but I cant sync the video to my iPhone 4 from that machine as my iPhone 4 only sync to my Macbook pro!! Any ideas out there or people with the same problem?
  • How do I import .mov files into iPhoto, iMovie, iTunes?
  • Transfer .mov files to iTunes?-Hi! I was hoping someone could help me out. I have some movies I created a while back with iDVD. The finished file is a .mov file and I would like to now put this in iTunes so I can sync it with my iPhone and iPad to watch the movies I created. I can't seem to figure out how to get those files into iTunes so I can sync them with my devices and play them on my mobile devices. Anyone have any ideas or figured this out?
  • Way to add .mov files to Videos app-I have a ton of .mov files that I recorded with my iPhone. What is the easiest way to get them into the Videos app on the iPad. From what I can tell I have to convert them to .mp4 for iTunes to accept them under the Movies section of the Library. First of all, why is this? If the iPhone is an apple product and the iPhone/iPad obviously can play .mov (I can play them under the Photos application!) then why won't iTunes allow me to add them to the Movies library? So I end up having to convert them to .mp4 using another program. The same method needs to be used to play them on my Apple TV since they need to be under Movies on my iTunes library for Apple TV to recognize them.
