Quite often when users came across the fact that the MP4 video isn’t added to iTunes library, they wonder the reasons behind it in the first place. For your convenience, we have mentioned here the reasons why some MP4 files cannot be added to iTunes.
#1. Video Codec Incompatibility
MP4 files are encoded in MPEG-4/H.264, AAC, H.263, and other numerous audio and video codecs. While, iTunes offers compatibility with MPEG-4/H.264 and AAC codecs. Hence, if you fail to add MP4 to iTunes then most probably the codecs of your MP4 files are not supported by iTunes.
#2. Incompatible technical specifications
Just in case, if the audio and video codec of your MP4 file is compatible with iTunes, you can add and play them over. But when it comes to syncing such files from iTunes to iDevices, it is important that the bitrate, sample rate, size and other technical specifications should meet with that of the devices. So, if they do not meet you can add file to iTunes but cannot sync them.
#3. MP4 files are added but you cannot see them
