    I've downloaded a film and want to put it on my iPad 1, so I can mirror it to my tv. I converted it from Avi format to mp4, added it to my iTunes. Then synced my iPad but iTunes says it cant sync film. Any ideas what I doing wrong???? Please.

    Is it protected? DRM?

    If iTunes complains about the video, it usually means that the file is not compatible with the iPad.

    MP4 is a broad format, and as a result, there are a lot of different settings that can affect compatibility. For example, if you convert it to a PSP (Playstation Portable) formatted MP4, it is still an MP4 file, but iTunes usually doesn't like it.
    Make sure you use iPad settings in the converter you use, or use a converter that has iPad settings.

    This guide might help you with that:

    I would suggest to use the AVI file to convert, rather than the (not properly working) MP4 video file you created from it using your other converter.
