    Ok so I thought this was going to be easy. I got an iPhone 4s th other day. I started taking videos and wanted to edit some on my iPad. So I transferred the videos to my Mac mini. Then started to move them over to iTunes to sync with the iPad. Or so I thought. I assumed they both used the same format for videos. When it comes to the native video player you sync to on the iPad it's mp4 only. Oh and the iPhone videos are .mov. So I had an app I haven't used in awhile called road movie....I think. Yeah the videos are upside down and look like garbage. So I guess my question is how to I convert them over to mp4 with out losing the great quality videos my new phone took?

    Photo Transfer App in the iTunes app store will transfer videos you take directly from the iPhone to the iPad over wifi--no iTunes necessary, and no conversion needed. I'm not sure if there are file size limits, so you might need to research that, but I've used it to transfer both photos and video for quite some time now between my devices (and to my MBP). It's worth looking into.

    It'll store the videos to your camera roll; from there, you *should* be able to open them with most editing apps, I think.

    Bought the app today. Works as advertised! First transfer from my iPhone to pad resulted in an error saying the video wasn't compatible. Tried again and it worked flawlessly. I want to take some photos from my pc to my iPad so I'll be seeing the use of that when I get back home in a few days.
