Each time I open iTunes to do a sync, a window pops upstaing:

 

"Some of the photos in your photo library were not copied to the Apple TV “Apple TV” because they could not be found. "

 

What does this actualy mean and how do I find out which videos they are?

 

Thanks

iPhone 5, iOS 6.0.1

    If you are using iPhoto, iPhoto keeps a database for use with sharing, it is essentially a list of photos in iPhoto and when you select an item the original is called upon for syncing/streaming. Your message indicates that the original is missing or at least damaged.

     

    Are these videos or photos you are talking about, and which Apple TV do you have.

    Videos aren't synced from iPhoto, they should be introduced to iTunes as movies and synced from there. Also if the video is from your iPhone 5 it wont play on your Apple TV, but you should be able to convert them for use in iTunes (File > Create New Version....)

    OK. Unfortunately you will need to find the videos that can't play on the Apple TV manually, but there are a couple of ways you might do this more efficiently.

     

    iPhone video is designated a Quicktime file. If in iTunes you open your movies in list view and go View > Show view options and check the File > Kind box, Kind will become one of the columns in iTunes. If you click on the column header it will sort by that column for you and will group all the QuickTime files together for you. However it's possible you may have other moivies that are of kind QuickTime and if it's more than a few this method might be inappropriate.

     

    Additionally, all iPhone movies have a mono audio track. If you put your movies in list view and open the get info window for the one at the top of the list and go to the summary tab, and look at the entry next to channels. You could then use the next button to look at the next movie. The possibility you have other mono movies in there is fairly slim, but it is possible.

     

    Finally there maybe other movies in iTunes that won't play, but you won't find them if you look for Quicktime or mono descriptions. To find these you will need to look in the get info window summary tab for video dimension. The Apple TV can play video up to 960 x 540 at 30 fps.
