    I just picked up a 16gb and wanted to know the best type of movie formats that I can save on the iPad. I put some digital copy movies on the iPad so far but take up too much space. Is there any way to downsize some of these movies in different formats?

    You can use handbrake to convert movies down to the perfect size for iPad, you can use the VLC app and play almost any format.

    from http://www.apple.com/ipad/specs/

    You can use Handbrake to downsize some movies and transcode them to the right format using the iPad or Apple TV preset.

    How big are your movies (in MB) and what format (file suffix) and codec (find out via VideoSpec) are they using?

    And then there is AirVideo.
