A few weeks ago I started tinkering with iBooks Author. I really like it, very easy to work with. I'd also tried to add some movies and that's where it is getting frustrating... I simply cannot add movies. Whatever I try...

 

Of course I read the help page, browsed Apple support and apparently all I need to do is open a video with Quicktime X, choose export, select iPad and hit the button, but, it simply doesn't work. Whatever I try, I get the message "The media file "test.m4v" wasn't added. One or more video tracks are unsupported."

 

Here's what I tried so far:

- Youtube video (mp4) -> Quicktime X -> export to iDevice : Not working

- Youtube video (mp4) -> Quicktime 7 -> export to mov -> Quicktime X -> export to iDevice : Not working

- Youtube video (flv) -> Quicktime 7 -> export to mov -> Quicktime X -> export to iDevice : Not working

- Youtube video (flv) -> Handbrake -> export to iPad -> Quicktime X -> export to iDevice : Not working

- iPhone 4S video (mov) -> Quicktime X -> export to iPad : Not working

- iPhone 4S video (mov) -> Quicktime 7 -> export with different settings -> Quicktime X -> export to iPad : Not working

- Part from a DVD rip by handbrake -> Quicktime X -> export to iPad : Not working

- Part from a DVD rip by handbrake -> Quicktime 7 -> export with different settings -> Quicktime X -> export to iPad : Not working

- New video in iMovie -> export to mobile -> Quicktime X -> export to iDevice: Not working

- New video in iMovie -> export to iTunes -> Quicktime X -> export to iDevice: Not working

- New video from within Quicktime X  -> export to iDevice: Not working

 

What the **** am I doing wrong here? Am I missing something? Is it simple too easy for me to see?

 

In general, Quicktime X poops out the following:

These are settings from a newly created video with my iSight camera. Nothing fancy...

 

Anyone have an idea on how to proceed?

 

/edit: to add: I normally have Perian running, but for the sake of testing disabled it. The non-youtube tests are done without it...
