Does anyone use iTunes? I have a query

Postby stratobuddy » Tue Mar 29, 2011 3:34 pm

I've just tried to put a video onto my iPod via iTunes for the first time. I've looked at all the
on-line help and done what it said, but nothing happened.

Then I noticed that on the left-hand pane of iTunes, only "music" is shown as a heading, there is no "video" heading as shown in the help (or anything else either, such as "photos").

I imported a video (WMV format) and nothing seemed to happen, there were no error messages, and it wasn't anywhere to be seen, even after several attempts.

How do I get the "video" heading to show? Any other ideas of how to import videos?

Well my tip Alan would be to Google it :!:

You can find video's on You Tube that will explain these things to you step by step.

If I ever have a problem with anything like my MP3 player or iPhone - I will always put my questions in the google search bar and it always comes up trumps for me.

Hope this helps :wink:

I know this is an old thread but - iPhone=Apple wmv=Windows. You need to convert the video to mpeg (possibly mpeg4) or (even better) a QuickTime format (as that is Apple too)

In iTunes in your library you should have Music, Films, TV Programmes, Podcasts and Radio headings? mp4 files will appear under "films" once imported.
