Handbrake problem - can't convert FLV files?

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.

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

Hi Hal, The file is probably not compatible as you haven't made an iPad version. In iTunes, right click the file you want on your iPad, and then click 'make iPad version' (or something along those lines!) Hope this solves it!
