How to Sync SD/HD Videos and Movies to iPhone, iPod, iPad with iTunes?

Do you have some HD videos in MKV/AVI/WMV/MTS/MXF/MPG/Tivo/FLV format? You may downloaded then from YouTube, forum; be emailed from friends; or shot several videos by yourself. It’s really a good idea to put these videos onto your iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch so that you can watch or share them everywhere.

We all know iTunes would transfer audio files to AC3/AAC automatically when you drag and drop them directly; however, not all the videos are supported by iTunes. To sync MKV/AVI/WMV/MTS/MXF/MPG/Tivo/FLV to iTunes for iPhone/iPad/iPod, the most recommended solution is to convert them to MPEG-4/H.264 MP4, the most compatible format to playback on iPhone/iPad/iPod.
