The Apple iPad is an excellent tablet that is so amazing for watching movies. However, the video formats supported by the iPad are relatively limited. I easily copy movies from my computer to my iPad with ease using iTunes + a video converter, the same way you can transfer videos to iPhone from PC.
If you have an iPad, you cannot use bluetooth to transfer, photos, music and videos from your computer to the iPad. To copy videos from your computer to your iPad 1, iPad 2 , iPad 3 or the iPad Mini, you will have to go through some processes which I am sharing with you in this post.
==> Computer with iTunes installed on it
==> Freemake Video Converter
You can download Freemake converter here and download iTunes here.
Not all videos are compatible with iPad, hence you have to make sure the video you want to copy from your computer to your iPad is in a format compatible with the iPad (mp4). If you are not sure of the format of the video, then you will need to use the freemake video converter to convert it to the Apple supported format.
How To Convert Videos to iPad Compatible Format
==> Launch the Freemake Video converter
==> Click the "+Video" button and add a video from your computer
==> Click the "to Apple" icon
==> Select "iPad" from the preset list
==> Select where you want to save it to on your PC eg desktop
==> Tick "Export to iTunes"
==> Click "Convert" to get video in MP4 format that is supported by Apple iPad
==> Launch the iTunes software on your computer
==> Click on the "Films" tab to ensure the converted video is in the list of the videos in the iTunes library
==> If you can't find the converted video in the iTunes "films" library, click on "File" > "Add File to Library" to import the converted video from your computer to the iTunes library.
==> Now, plug in your iPad to the computer
==> Wait till the iTunes detects your iPad
==> Once detected, click on your iPad icon
==> Click on the "Films" tab
==> Tick "Sync films"
==> Tick "Automatically include all films"
Once completed, you can unplug your iPad, tap the video app icon on your iPad and enjoy your video.
I hope this helps.
Do you know other free video converters for Apple iPad, iPhone?
