    Hi Guys/Gals,


    Sorry if this has been posted before but i'm looking for suggestions for free ipad video converters.


    I just downloaded the videora ipad converter, opened the dmg, and all of a sudden it turned from ipad video converter, to ipod video converter. I opened the app and there is no option for the ipad, even though the download is called, ipad video converter dmg.

    Anyway, anyone else had experience with videora, or any other free converter?

    Thanks.

    Caolan.

    I used the Apple TV setting. I know there have been threads where people tweak those settings a bit, but without doing that my movies turned out awesome.

    as others have suggested: Handbrake is what you need

    fyi, there is discussion of the best settings for iPad encoding in the Handbrake forums, with info from one of the developers

    he says: "Until I add an official iPad preset to HB, here's what to do:"

    The Only Negative on Handbrake is that it does not encode the audio very loudly and there's no Normalizing option , so even full blast on the Ipad isn't very loud.

    Air Video works great for me - lite version is free in the app catalog & can also convert and stream on the fly.

    Handbrake seems to be the standard.

    The Quicktime player has a built in ability where it can export video in iPod/Apple TV settings.

    With a Mac it's very very easy to convert.
    You just need to use the standard Quicktime X, but got to have the perian plugin for Quicktime installed.
    I have already several AVI movies converted to m4v for my iPad. Very very easy.
    Here the steps:

    - Open AVI movie with Quicktime X
    - Select 'Save As' in the menu
    - As structure select 'Apple TV'
    - Now you save and wait till converting is finished

    Thats it!
