I just d/l a video in mp4 format. Using Get Info I see:
Dimensions: 640x352 Codecs: H.264, AAC Duration: 56.27 Audio channels: 1 Total bit rate: 1796
I added it to my iTunes library, it plays fine with iTunes and Quicktime but iTunes tells me the video is not in the correct format. When I select Create iPad Version it creates a much smaller file that plays the audio but just a white screen for the video.
Update - tried using QT and Save As to change to .mov and got the same white screen.

I would try converting the video via the freeware program Handbrake. I convert videos that way and just select the default mp4 settings.
I use RealPlayer SP (available for Mac & PC) to download videos, especially for YouTube. RealPlay can convert to iPad format (m4v) and transfer a copy of the file to iTunes for loading onto my iPad the next time I sync. To download RealPlayer SP go to: http://www.real.com/realplayer/mac
Also, Safari 5.0.1 can now download many YouTube videos in m4v format.
