Yes, very strange... I've checked and the specs you gave me above seem to be correct. Actually some of them are a bit under, so there should be no problem...
These two videos I'm trying to add to my library play on my iPad and I know it because I threw them on my Dropbox and played them. So I don't understand why iTunes won't let me add them to the library. The problem is that Dropbox only allows me to play them if I'm connected to the Internet. If I'm not, it won't play them, and I need them to be played offline.
Thank you very much for your help. I don't know what happened, I was so furious that I had tried everything and nothing worked that I decided to restart my computer and it worked!
I'll never know what made it work, if it was the conversions, the reinstallation... Anyways thank you very much and sorry for having bothered you. Have a nice day!
So has no one actually found out why it happens? Cause am having the same problem. I converted from avi to mp4 with hand break and I can't drag it across nor the "add file" way to get it in iTunes but if I right click it and select open with and choose iTunes it plays? So I can't understand why it won't add it? Anyone got any more ideas please? Thanks
When I had old iTunes everything was fine.
Now when I installed new iTunes:
- I cannot play new mpeg4 files, only mpeg4 files that I transferred before installing new iTunes.
- I cannot play mp3 files that I downloaded after installing new iTunes.
All of this is on my MacBook Air.
Can You help my with this?
I thought I'd add my voice to the fray... I am having the same issue as everyone else who has posted here. I created a simple video which I edited in Adobe Premiere Pro. I used the H.264 setting. I can play the video using "peek" (hightlight the file, hit spacebar) and also quicktime.

I truly think there is a issue developing with users who just upgraded to itunes 11. I had no problems adding videos
to my itunes library, using the exact same version of premiere, same video settings, and this particular file that I am
referring to I added to different mac with the previous version of itunes and the same version of OSX lion.
I'd love to hear from others on this issue....
I am running windows 7 and had the same issue. The movies appear to import but did not show up under the movies tab. Went to list view and they were there! Went back to movie view and they were still missing. Clicked on the "Home Video" tab and there they were. Had to right click on the movie and change the video type from "Home Video" to "Movie" and it then jumped into the Movie category. This just started happening in iTunes 11.01. iTunes imports them into the wrong category. Maybe this is your scenerio.
