Hey Jody,
 
To solve your problem, open up the terminal and add the following lines –
 
pcastaction encode –input=INFILE –output=OUTFILE –encoder=iphone
Or, you can run the following sample script-
 
#! /bin/sh for FILE in /PATH/TO/FOLDER/OF/MOVIES/*; do /usr/bin/pcastaction encode –basedir="/PATH/TO/FOLDER/OF/MOVIES" –input="$FILE" –output="$FILE".m4v –encoder=iphone done
 
Hope this will help.

Hi Jody Akerly,

It is more suitable to use QuickTime Player 7.6.3 instead of older versions. You can do it easily by inserting the “Snow Leopard” cd on your optical device. But if you prefer using your current version, then you can use the following process. Check if your syntax is correct. As they are case sensitive, double check the input. Also try the following command “qtdefaults write MediaKeys category key”. Here, category & key are both case sensitive. So, check & double check before inputting. This should solve your problem.

Please try the following code

qtdefaults write Mediakeys category key

Above code please replace the word category and the working key. Category and the key are case sensitive. Therefore be careful when replacing the category and the key.After doing this , type following code in the command line to check the Media Keys actually are there.

qtdefaults read category

For example : if your category SoftVideo and your key is 123456, you would enter as shown below.

qtdefaults write Mediakeys SoftVideo 123456

Try this and let me know.
