    MP4 movie won't sync to Ipad? Help

    I have an HD movie in MP4 format that I want to sync to my Ipad but when I do itunes says that the Ipad doesn't support this type of file. I though the Ipad could support MP4 and H264. Is there a free converter out there I can use? I really just want some way to put this movie on without having to pay money to do so. Thanks!

    Thanks! I have read a few things about handbrake but i am confused about which preset to use? I see that many people just use Apple TV as the preset and it comes out fine. Is there any thing else I need to tweek for conversion? I don't care about space I'd like the best quality possible since I have the 64 GB ipad it doesn't bother me too much.

    Are you trying your movie from a computer sync with iTunes? Does it play on iTunes?

    Yes it plays perfect on itunes, but when i try and sync it to ipad it says it doesnt support it. Maybe tis because the file is not the rights width for the ipad screen? I was wondering if the apple tv preset on handbrake would work for syncing it to itunes.

    I don't have my iPad yet, but try selecting the movie in iTunes, then click the Advanced menu. There should be an option to create an iPad/iPhone or iPad/Apple TV version of the movie.

    try playing it in Quicktime. If it works, then save the file as AppleTV or HD480 with *.m4v ending.

    I just did the same thing today with a DivX-Video.
    Most likely written on my iPad

    YOU must have a HD movie ???
    is it!!!
    you have to bring the bit rate down....... so if you use mac download videora link is
    Videora Apple TV Converter Download , if you use window google a free one, I do not know

    the movie/ video needs to be 640 by 480 with 160 kbs Audio.
    i am on mac and use visual Hub for all my need and It works like a magic for my ipad

    Thanks! I never knew this was an option in itunes. It worked perfectly.Took a while to convert, but it was well worth it! Oh... and HD movies look and sound amazing on Ipad!
