Sync video media (dvd, bluray, other formats) to iTunes for hosting from media server

Summary: Do you want to sync video media (dvd, bluray, other formats) to iTunes for hosting from media server? This article mainly introduces the easy solution to all kinds of contents onto iTunes on Win/Mac.

iTunes proviedes a media library for iOS devices. Before streaming or syncing contents from iTunes, you need to add your music, video, and other items to create your iTunes library. However, iTunes only supports limited video formats. So I want to convert my video media (dvd, bluray, other formats) to be compatible with itunes for hosting from my media server and looking for a video tool to help me.

After searching, I meet this Pavtube Video Converter Ultimate which is recommended by many online web forum reviews. It can help me to rip my Blu-ray/DVD movies and convert my videos to all popular video formats for watching. Besides, the Video editing ability has pushed me, the built-in video editor allows me to trim, crop, rotate video, add watermarks, etc. to get the very part and effect I want. Once I have tried DVDFab, but I have to say i view Pavtube software as a far greater value than DVD Fab.

If you want to convert video files on Mac, try the equivalent Mac version - Pavtube iMedia Converter for Mac.

Now let's go to learn how to convert video media (dvd, bluray, other formats) to iTunes supported videos for hosting from my media server.

Step 1. Run the Pavtube Video Converter Ultimate, drag and drop source video to the program.

Step 2. Click on “Format” bar, and Choose iTunes compatible format for hosting.

Choose the iTunes supported formats in the "Format" dropdown list. You can go to "Common Video" or "HD Video" options to find what you like. I think MP4 format is better for iTunes.

Tips: For some advances users, you can go to adjust video and audio parameters like bitrate, resolution, channels, etc. Click "Settings" button you can go to check and change them as you like.

Step 3. Press on “Convert” to start encoding your media contents to iTunes compatible video.

Step 4. When conversion completes, press on “Open” to locate converted videos. Drag and drop these movies to iTunes.

Now open your iTunes and then sync the converted MP4 to iTunes library for convenient playback via media server.

Transfer videos to your iTunes library:

Drag a file or folder from the desktop to the iTunes window. If you add a folder, all the files it contains are added to your library.

In iTunes, choose File > Add to Library, locate a file or folder, and click Open.

In this way, you can enjoy your favorite video media (dvd, bluray, other formats) via media server with ease.
