Can't Sync MP4 - Itunes Says That These Files Can't Be Played

I have a strange problem. I have A Go Pro HD Hero wich makes MP4 movies. These I can sync to my Ipad2 no problem. However I also have the new Go Pro HD Hero2 which makes the same mp4's but these I can't sync. Itunes says that these files can't be played on the Ipad. The settings on botch camera's are the same 1280*720 @ 59 frames p/s.

Cannot Be Played On System - Sync A Subset Of Media
My iPod is 27.84 GB, so besides compressing my songs, I only sync a subset of my media. So I got the largest iPad I could get, and sync all of my media.I have a song and a video that tell me:"Fan video - Terminus Est by Per Maim" was not copied to the iPad "Howard Brazee's iPad" because it cannotbe played on this iPad.I don't want to click to not show me again - because I want to know when I have other problems. But I don't want synchronization to stop either. This .mp4 plays fine on my Mac's iTunes.So - my first goal is to get that video playable. If that is impossible, I want to not delay my synchronization, but have the ability to find out which songs and videos aren't getting synchronized.Home workgroup

Methods To Sync Files Without ITunes
While iTunes is nice to sync music, videos, apps, etc...I'm not keen on using it for transferring files like PDFs, Word Documents, Photos, etc... to and from my iPad.For those of you that have Jailbroken your iPads what methods do you use, other than iTunes to transfer files to and from your iPad? I wish there was an adapter for the iPad that simply allowed you to plug in a USB Flash drive and then a file explorer app that let you copy or paste any file back and forth. Anything like this coming down the pike?

Sync Ipad 2 Files With MS Pc Without ITunes?
How do I sync Ipad 2 with a MS pc (both ways) without Itunes. I can�t install Itunes, Dropbox or Goodreader because of company policy, but I need to sync files between Ipad 2 and my work pc.The best solution has been to make Ipad 2 appear as an external harddrive through USB connection.As the Ipad is company asset, a jailbreak is not an option.

ITunes Sync - Individual Single Files
While synching my iPad I noticed that I was missing an ep of a tv show; it was on the home pc, but not the iPad. Having never movied anything from pc to iPad, I watched the tutorial, which said select tab, select item, click apply, then sync. Itunes promptly erased ALL my videos, then plopped the missing file on the iPad, and inexplicably wiped all my books and music as well. Now I get the joy of adding all my files back onto the iPad.I've re-watched the tutorial and I followed the instructions exactly. There seems to be no procedure for individual single files from pc to iPad; you have to erase everything, then copy everything back over. Which is nuts. So first a declaration, then a question.

Won't Find Apps Before Itunes Sync Process To Get DVD Movies And Camera Movie Files
Ok, I have done this in the past before using a couple of applications and after going through the daunting process, although working well, it was a daunting process.

At that time, it really wasn't worth my time for my iPhone and with the bigger screen on the iPad, I figured I'd give it another try.

Anyone here want to share their "Process" and what "applications" used to get movies from DVD's, camera movie files, etc., into the iPad quickly.

I know you have to use iTunes to sync the movies into the device but I'm looking for the process before the iTunes sync process.

Doesn't Allow Certain Videos To Be Played?
I recently purchased an iPad and have been playing around with it. I've noticed that the YouTube app doesn't always return all the search results that I know are available. Namely, I can't seem to find any music videos. I've even tried doing a search on my laptop for a music video, then do the same search in the YT app, and nothing. I even went as far as sending myself the link to the video, then accessing the link through Safari, but even that won't play it. Is there some kind of censorship going on that doesn't allow certain videos to be played?

IMovie Export Cannot Be Played Or Copied To It
I have created an iMovie project. Every time I export it and try to load the movie onto my iPad, I get an iTune error saying the movie can not be played on my iPad and therefore was not copied. I tried to export using .mov and .mpeg formats and tried loading on my iPad via Movies and iPhoto. Neither won't copy. But, when exported movie is in iTunes, I can play the movie via shared library with ZERO issues.

Won't Sync To MP4 Files Instead Of M4V?
I cant seem to figure out how to get about half of my videos on my iPad. I have a number of videos all saved in iTunes at approximately the same resolution. The only difference I can see is the ones that won't sync to my iPad are MP4 files instead of M4V.

I have tried changing the extension, and that didn't fix the problem.

I have tried changing the extension, renaming it, and then putting it back into iTunes, still didn't fix the problem.

I ran it through Handbreak and it fixed the problem. Both files show up under Get Info as H264 at about the same data rate, yet only the new one will go on my iPad.

I am attaching two images from the Quicktime Inspector for each file. Can anyone explain a quicker way to make these files work than running them all through Handbreak?

Can't Sync Mp4 Files
I downloaded some videos that were already in mp4 format. However, when I try to sync it to my iPad in iTunes, it tells me that the files were not synced because they cannot be played on the iPad. What should I do?

The files play fine in WMP, iTunes and QuickTime. I tried using the "Create iPad version" under Advanced in iTunes - it seems like it's doing something, and saves a new version in the Library. I can sync it after - but it shows a blank white screen (on both the Pad and in Tunes) but I can hear the audio.

Move .mp4 Files To Without Sync
I synch my iPad with a desktop that has my iTunes library on an external drive. I'm currently on the road with my Macbook Pro and have some .mp4 work files that I'd like to view on my iPad. Is there a way to transfer them to the iPad without synching (since that wouldn't be good!)

Note that I also have the Camera Connection kit and am willing to buy 3rd party file management apps if relevant. Thx!

Why Won't MVI Movie Files Sync
I sync home photos and movies between my iMac and iPad. I first take pictures & videos with a camera, download into iPhoto on my iMac, then sync to my iPad. My problem is with movies. 

I use two different cameras for movies  -- a Sony and a Canon. All works fine with movies taken with a Sony camera, which after downloading to iPhoto, appear  as a 'MOV###" file. Those files sync and play everywhere, including on my iPad. 

However, movies I shoot with a Canon camera download into iPhoto as a "MVI###" file. Those files play fine in iPhoto on my iMac but will not sync to my iPad. 

When I attempt to sync those MVI movies to my iPad I get a warning message saying 'those files did not sync because they can not be played on iPad' 

How do I get those MVI movie files to sync to the iPad? 

iPad, iOS 5.0.1

Won't Sync ITunes / After Sync It Erase All Music And Videos
I have an iPad and Itouch.

Having never downloaded any video I thought I would do a test on my touch.
Went into iTunes store and downloaded a tv show into iTunes.

Then I went to iTunes and hit the tv button. Saw the downloaded show and checked the boxes.

When I hit sync I got a message that said iTunes would erase all of my videos and music if I proceeded. I hit sync and it downloaded the tv show and true to it's word it erased all of my music from the I touch.
What possible logic is at play here. How can you sync video from iTunes if this is the result?
