    I did the "Create iPad or Apple TV Version" for several of the movies I have that WILL play in iTunes on my MacBook Pro but will NOT play (or even sync to) my iPad. This resulted in an additional movie file that went from about 1.5GB to a file size of about 100MB. That really caused me some concern over what my picture quality was going to be. But there is no picture at all. I have sound but no picture. What the heck have I done wrong?

    I had the same problem. The Matrix, while playing fine in iTunes, won't sync onto my iPad. When I did the "Create iPad or Apple TV version" thing, I got a much small file with no video - just a white screen. What the **** happened?

    I never did an answer or solution to this problem. But I did find a free handy file conversion program called Videora that does the job. It is SLOW however as it seems to convert in real time. Another odd thing about it to me is that the file that's created for the iPad movie is larger than the original. But the converted movies sync and play just fine on the iPad.

    Thank you! This worked great for a movie my company sent me in .mov. I converted it and it plays beautifully on the ipad.

    I got the "this video won't play" message on a TV episode I downloaded from iTunes and tried to play on my iPad (iTunes 10 and iPad1). The video played in my iTunes on the computer, but not on the iPad. I finally resorted to the old trick of when all else fails: reboot. I restarted my iPad and everything works fine. The picture is not as good on my 62" screen as the HD network feed, but good enough to catch up on an occassional missed episode. The picture is probably equal to the standard digital signal from network, but in widescreen format. I think I will stick to Netflix Blu-Ray for movies - for now.

    Just reboot your machine (hold down HOME and HOLD button-top right button)

     

    I had the same problem. Just got new ipad 2, downloaded digital content of "Hot Tub Time Machine" transferred via itunes from PC to ipad 2 and got the "Movie cannot be played" messgage. Rebooted and now it works fine!

    I downloaded 'Finding Nemo' and it played in iTunes but not on my iPad. I have my iPad backup encrypted and I thought it might be the culprit. Sure enough, after unencrypting, the movie played fine.

    I hope this helps.

    If you turn your iPad off, wait about 10 seconds and turn it back on, your downloaded movie off iTunes should work.

    I have two iTunes purchased movies Constantine and Little Big Soldier that won't sync to my iPad iTunes even gave me another download of Little Big Soldier and it still won't sync. I don't think it's my iPad as I have other purchased movies and digital copies that do sync
