    Once converted to the proper format, how is the video added to iTunes?

    Open up iTunes, and click on the Movies tab. Go to File > Add File To Library and it should be on there. Or, you can do it the drag and drop way and go to iTunes and open up the Movie tab, and then drag it onto iTunes.

    Avidemux is also a pretty good converter. I don't have an Ipod Video though, I have a Creative Zen Vision M, it supports tons of formats muhahah!

    I converted all 26 episodes of a certain show to mp4 and only nine of them import to iTunes. What can I do to get the other 17?
