    Free Converter

    I am not sure about full length movies [pretty sure not DRMs] but Aleesoft Free iPad Converter works for me on some HDs I have made. Price is right too. :)

    I don't do the convertings,I just installed VLC from appstore and then dump my videos into VLC from itunes. VLC shows all the videos as books in ibooks and it can play almost all the formats though it lags a bit sometimes. There is another easy to use freeware converter with the name something "Hamster" which I used to use before when I first got my ipad,and was showing off how sweet videos looked in my ipad. Google it and you'll find it.

    Thanks :)

    I think the consensus is for Windows, use FormatFactory (see my writeup here). For Mac use Handbrake.
