[QUOTE]\nMine isnt, the podcasts are moved automatically.[/QUOTE]\n\nI don't bother syncing, or even moving Podcasts manually from iTunes to\nmy iPhone or iPad. I have some I subscribe to via the iOS Podcast App.\nThey appear as available in iCloud and I just access them when I want\nto play them. Delete from iDevice when done and it is archived in\niCloud if a repeat viewing is ever wanted.\n[QUOTE]\nI donâ€™t load the stuff I do manually into iTunes, just\nuse iTunes to move it into the phone, normally the\nstuff I download for the kids from pirate bay.[/QUOTE]\n\nI don't use any of the torrent sources such as Pirate Bay. I do the\noccasional rip of a DVD using Mac The DVDRipper Pro or Handbrake.\n<[url]http://www.macdvdripperpro.com>[/url]\n<[url]https://handbrake.fr>[/url]\n\nThen I will use iTunes, DVD Player, or VLC to view on my desktop.\nOtherwise I use iTunes or Dropbox to load the files into my iDevices. I\nfind that m4v or mp4 files work best on my iOS devices.\n[QUOTE]\nThe stuff I get from pirate bay can be in all sorts of formats and\nquite a few of them arent recognised by the iphone as something\nit can play. So I installed VLC and manually move the file to the\nphone's VLC using itunes.[/QUOTE]\n\nHandbrake can usually do a pretty good job of getting video files to a\nstate that an iOS device won't choke on them.
