I knew I shouldn't have abbreviated. Sorry.
Ah ok, didn't know the iPad recognized the media files from an iPhone like that, but it makes senses.
I'll try transcoding the 48Khz audio from my Sony camera to 44.1Khz to see if I can get the files recognized. VirtualDub should be a good tool for that.
I see a Flip MinoHD in my near future...or an iPod Touch 4th Gen, not sure how the video quality compares though...
It's been a few month since I looked into this. Has anything replaced the Flip Mino HD as being the only plug and play (and edit) video caemra compatible with the iPad 2?
I used the Flip Mino Hd for a couple of weeks but returned it. I didn't think I an expensive device should crash as much as it did. It did work perfectly with the iPad 2 though. I'm going on a 4 day trip would like to know if the pc-less situation has improved. Thanks.
iOS based iMovie is designed to work with video recorded with iPad 2, iPhone 4, and iPod touch (4th generation). After importing non-Apple video clips to iPad 2, iPhone 4, or iPod touch (4th generation), the video clips will not appear in the video browser within iMovie.
In order to import videos captured from other camcorder to iMovie for iPad 2, iPhone 4 and iPod Touch, we need to convert them to iMovie for iOS supported format
Just google search Camcorder to iMovie - Import Camcorder Video to iMovie for iPhone 4, iPad 2 and iPod Touch
you will find a step by step guide on how to do that
