Share videos with iTunes 6.0.2
Authored by: BeezelNut RaRa on Jan 29, '06 07:02:42AM

Anyone know where there is a list of format requirements? Troubleshooting which videos work seems a bit senseless. Of 8 videos tested, only the video created for iPod works (also full screen, very poor quality).

Success - video specifically formatted for iPod
.M4v - AAC, H.264, 320 x 180, Millions

Failures
.mov - AAC, H.264, 704 x 396, Millions
.mov - AAC, H.264, 720 x 400, Millions (x6 files)

So the differences are file type and dimensions.

Failure - Dimensions changed to iPod equivalent
.mov - AAC, H.264, 320 x 180, Millions

Success - Large dimensions re-exported as Mp4 (also full screen, acceptable quality)
.mp4 - AAC, H.264, 720 x 400, Millions

Hypothesis: Dimensions can vary (at least up to 720x404) but apparently the files must be Mp4 or M4v; H.264 works, ie. codecs untested.

Doh! Mp4 - M4v- Mov and hinting

I should have tried drebes hinting tip first. (Sorry.) I guess Mp4 and M4v files do the hinting automatically. Anyway, drebes is right. The original, large .mov files I tried merely needed hinting with QuickTime Pro (Export > Movie to Hinted Movie).
