How Can I Transfer Videos from My Computer to iPad

Question: I have downloaded many videos from website like YouTube, Facebook and I would like to put them on my iPad so I can watch them on iPad while travelling. Please advise, thanks.

Answer: Just as how you transfe videos to iPod&iPhone, you can use iTunes to download videos to iPad. Open iTunes and drag videos from your hard drive and drop them into iTunes. Then, connect your iPad, select iPad under the Devices section in iTunes, hit Movies and set it up to sync videos you want on your iPad. Click the "sync" button, wait a while and you're set!


However, iTunes will not accept everything. Usually, AVI, WMV, MKV, FLV(Flash video) are those that are unfriendly with iTunes. To transfer these videos to iTunes and iPad, I am afraid you have to convert them to iPad compatible file like MP4 with iPad Video Converter.


Steps to convert videos to iPad compatible file:

a. Install and run iPad Video Converter.

b. Click "Add File" to import videos to the program.

c. Set the output format at "Profile". ie. iPad > iPad H.264 Video(*.mp4)

d. Start to convert at "START".


You can download iPad Video Converter and give it a try. Hope that helps.
