Get start

The very first step is to make sure the video is compatible with iPad. We all know that iPad only reads videos in .m4v, .mp4, .mov file formats(and some rarely videos in avi format). So, check your video format before transfer videos from Mac to iPad. If your videos are not compatible with iPad, what you need is iPad Video Converter for Mac.

Then, open iTunes. Drag and drop videos to iTunes or click "add file to library/add folder to library" to add videos to iTunes.

Now, 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.

Finally, click the "sync" button, wait a while and you're set!


That's it. If you got videos that you want to transfer to iPad on your iMac, Macbook Pro/Air, then, don't hesitate to give it a try!
