Thanks to this outstanding features, videos or movies will do look great on the new device, and it’s a lot easier to carry around than a laptop or other portable device. But the problem is, what formats supported by iPhone 4, and how to convert video formats had to the iPhone 4 compatible formats. As a iPhone fan, after searched and read many articles and reviews, I write out this article on how to convert popular video/audio formats to iPhone 4 supported.
