There are senior members on the forums who serve as Moderators. These volunteers keep the board organized and moving.
Moderators are authorized to: (in order of increasing severity)
Move posts to the correct forums. Many times, members post in the wrong forum. These off-topic posts may impede the normal operation of the forum.
Edit posts. Moderators will edit posts that are offensive or break any of the House Rules.
Delete posts. Posts that cannot be edited to comply with the House Rules will be deleted.
Restrict members. This is one of the last punishments before a member is banned. Restrictions may include placing all new posts in a moderation queue or temporarily banning the offender.
Ban members. The most severe punishment. Three or more moderators or administrators must agree to the ban for this action to occur. Banning is reserved for very severe offenses and members who, after many warnings, fail to comply with the House Rules. Banning is permanent. Bans cannot be removed by the moderators and probably won't be removed by the administration.

The Rules

1. Warez, copyright violation, or any other illegal activity may NOT be linked or expressed in any form. Topics discussing techniques for violating these laws and messages containing locations of web sites or other servers hosting illegal content will be silently removed. Multiple offenses will result in consequences. File names are not required to discuss your issues. If filenames are copyright then do not belong on these forums & will be edited out or post removed. Picture sample attachments in posts must not include copyright infringement.

2. Spamming and excessive advertising will not be tolerated. Commercial advertising is not allowed in any form, including using in signatures.

3. There will be no excessive use of profanity in any forum.

4. There will be no racial, ethnic, or gender based insults, or any other personal attacks.

5. Pictures may be attached to posts and signatures if they are not sexually explicit or offensive. Picture sample attachments in posts must not include copyright infringement.

6. Remember to post in the correct forum. Take your time to look at other threads and see where your post will go. If your post is placed in the wrong forum it will be moved by a moderator. There are specific Gnutella Client sections for LimeWire, Phex, FrostWire, BearShare, Gnucleus, Morpheus, and many more. Please choose the correct section for your problem.

7. If you see a post in the wrong forum or in violation of the House Rules, please contact a moderator via Private Message or the "Report this post to a moderator" link at the bottom of every post. Please do not respond directly to the member - a moderator will do what is required.

8. Any impersonation of a forum member in any mode of communication is strictly prohibited and will result in banning.

9. Multiple copies of the same post will not be tolerated. Post your question, comment, or complaint only once. There is no need to express yourself more than once. Duplicate posts will be deleted with little or no warning. Keep in mind a forum censor may temporarily automatically hold up your post, if you do not see your post, do not post again, it will be dealt with by a moderator within a reasonable time. Authors of multiple copies of same post may be dealt with by moderators within their discrete judgment at the time which may result in warning or infraction points, depending on severity as adjudged by the moderators online.

10. Posts should have descriptive topics. Vague titles such as "Help!", "Why?", and the like may not get enough attention to the contents.

11. Do not divulge anyone's personal information in the forum, not even your own. This includes e-mail addresses, IP addresses, age, house address, and any other distinguishing information. Don´t use eMail addresses in your nick. Reiterating, do not post your email address in posts. This is for your own protection.

12. Signatures may be used as long as they are not offensive or sexually explicit or used for commercial advertising. Commercial weblinks cannot be used under any circumstances and will result in an immediate ban.

13. Dual accounts are not allowed. Cannot explain this more simply. Attempts to set up dual accounts will most likely result in a banning of all forum accounts.

14. Video links may only be posted after you have a tally of two forum posts. Video link posting with less than a 2 post tally are considered as spam. Video link posting with less than a 2 post tally are considered as spam.

15. Failure to show that you have read the forum rules may result in forum rules breach infraction points or warnings awarded against you which may later total up to an automatic temporary or permanent ban. Supplying system details is a prerequisite in most cases, particularly with connection or installation issues.

Violation of any of these rules will bring consequences, determined on a case-by-case basis.

Thank You! Thanks for taking the time to read these forum guidelines. We hope your visit is helpful and mutually beneficial to the entire community.

Default How do i transfer videos to itunes

I have been trying for a long time to get videos transfered to itunes so I can put them on my ipod. I first tried to have them open up in itunes and it didn't work. The I tried to import them in and it didn't work. I also tried many file converters which didn't work. Anyone have any better ideas as to what I should do?

Have you tried using 3gp_converter034 ?

That will convert your movie files into mp4s which you can open in itunes.

The old videos you see might only be reference listings. Click on them and see if they play or not. Most likely a ? will appear designating iTunes cannot find them. Unless, the video files were added to iTunes list without actually being added to its library or vice-versa. ie: the old videos might either be in iTunes Library folder on your Hard Disk Drive (HDD) or maybe in LW's download folder or other location on your computer. Another way to check if they still exist is to right-click (control-click) one of the video files listed in iTunes and choose 'Show in Finder'.

Sometimes we forget to set iTunes to copy files to iTunes Media folder when adding files to Library. I've made that error once in a while before realising. ie: iTunes preferences -> Advanced.

As for your other video files, did you drag and drop the video files into iTunes or simply place the video files within the iTunes folder on the HDD?

Are you looking in the Movies category playlists or within the main Music Library?
Unless I'm mistaken older iTunes versions would sometimes put both videos and music in the main Library section now only used for music. But that may have been due to a 3rd party codec I was using for iTunes to import ogg vorbis files. iTunes sometimes made a mistake what was an audio or video file due to this codec I was using.

Have you checked the file-formats of the videos you added? They might not be an mpeg 4 or H262 format that iTunes understands. ITunes does not have any problem with the open source X264 but I'm not sure about some other patent formats. Even if they are MPeg 4 or H264, there might be some high profile settings about them that iTunes will not recognise. Though I'd have thought they would still be imported into iTunes library regardless of H264 profile, but playability would be the question.

BTW one trick for importing other kinds of videos into iTunes is to open the video using QuickTime 7 Player and do a 'Save As', and save as self-contained movie. Then drag and drop the .mov file into iTunes. However, to do this you will need to have either or both Perian, DivX or Flip4Mac installed on your system. This will allow you to watch AVI videos in iTunes. This has also worked for me with mkv and wmv files. But this will not allow such videos to be playable on iPod. Remember if QuickTime cannot play the video, then iTunes definitely will not be able to play it. iTunes uses QT for playback and conversions.

If you have an mp4 video file with chapters, these chapters will not be seen by either QT or iTunes or iPod unless you change the file extension to .mv4.

Some of Perian's abilities: DivX, 3ivx, Flash Video, Flash Screen Video, On2 VP3, VP6, VP8, H263I, Indeo 2, 3 & 5, MPEG-1, 2 & 4 Video (in supported formats), Windows Media Audio v1 & v2, Flash ADPCM, Xiph Vorbis (in Matroska/mkv), DTS Coherent Acoustics audio, AVI file format, Subtitles, AC3 audio.

My recommended video converters: Handbrake, then MPeg Streamclip (MPSC). Handbrake utilizes the best abilities of the most recent X264 versions. X264 has been the best H264 codec around for a few years but lacks any marketing. In comparison, MPSC contains editing abilities. But Handbrake in general seems to be able to maintain video quality (or equivalent bitrate) at smaller file sizes in comparison for files below about 1 GB. MPSC seems to do a better job for the larger finished file sizes.

My recommended audio ripper and converter: XLD (is recognised as the best Mac OSX audio CD ripper by Audiophile forums and private torrent sites for 'accurate' CD rips.) XLD uses Lame for mp3 conversion, will also read or convert to Flac, Monkey/APE (can also split APE album files into individual tracks), WavPack, Wave64, Ogg Vorbis, mp4, Apple Lossless.
