Convert Movies/Shows to iphone FREE!!! (PC)
Ok, Here are the steps to convert movies/shows or whatever you want to iphone format to add to itunes, because most video files on the net do not have ID3 tags you have to add the album name manually with tagger to get itunes to accept them.
1. Download Xilisoft iphone converter, there is a free download link on this page.
2. Install Xilisoft iphone converter to computer.
3. Run Xilisoft iPhone Video Converter and go to the "Help" tab then go down in the "Help" tab and click on "Enter Registration Code".
4. Copy the code (Deleted for piracy) no brackets. Then paste it in to "License Code", in "Name" enter what ever you want it registered to.
5. Add you movie or show files by dragging them into the list.
6. Chose a destination folder or desktop for the converted file to goto.
7. Press encode and wait for file to be encoded into iphone format.
8. Download Tagger program from the following website it is also a free download
there are two versions I used version 6 if it doesn't work try version 5.
9. Double click the tagger.jar (you will need java installed I think i already had it if you don't look it up it is free too!).
10. From file in tagger select open and choose the encoded movie file you made.
11. It will bring up the tag lists, copy the name of the movie from Name and paste into the Album box, (So you name the album the same as the name).
12. Under file select save and tagger will save the new tag to your video file.
13. Open itunes, click movies in the left pane, and drag your newlly encoded and tagged MP4 into the movies list.
14. Sync iphone with itunes and enjoy being able to watch your movies.
This method above fixes the problem that itunes would not accept some MP4 files.
Note: Sometimes Xilisoft has switched back to trial mode for me after a few days, just uninstall it then reinstall and re-enter the licence code above and it will unlock again.
Please enjoy this method and tell you friends with iphone
