    I've tried converting several flv files lately with handbrake, and the M4V files seem to be accepted by iTunes, but when I try synching I get "file won't play on ipad/iphone"

    Does anyone have an idea what is going on?

    Thanks,

    Hal

    Well . Here is the problem FLV is Flash. Apple don't like flash.
    The Name FLV comes from FLash Video
    iPad only Supports MP4, H.264 Video.
    You need to get a converter like "Daniusoft iPad Video Converter" that can do that.
    There is also for the MAC "Daniusoft Video Converter for Mac"

    Soooo, back to my original question, does HANDBRAKE have a problem converting Flash (flv) files?

    I am aware Apple doesn't do flash, and I was under the impression that Handbrake was a conversion program...

    Are you using the newest release of HB?
    They just dropped a new one a few days ago.

    No, I didn't know this. I'll upgrade when I get home, try it out, and report back.

    Thanks!

    not sure if it will fix your issue or not, but it is a good place to start.

    I will search the HB forums and see what i come up with.

    So far everything I read says it should work with no issues.
    Update to the new version, and use one of the Apple presets for the conversion.

    I dont have any flv on my mac or i would test run for ya
