    I'm using winavi converter and the quality is rubbish. It didn't matter so much on the iphone but is pretty ordinary on the Ipad. It's annoying enough to make me want to do soimething about it. Someone told me about wondershare. At the risk of repeting a thread (which of course I've not been able to find, what does everyone think is the fastest good quality video converter.

    Mostly avi but the occassional mkv I currently use magic dvd ripper if I have to get it off a dvd. Then WINAVI coverter. This makes it an ipod sized image but on an ipad screen just looks rubbish

    Handbrake, certainly the Mac version, will do all you want and more.

    I would definitely agree with the handbrake suggestion. I've hardly had an issue converting any HD/SD video for the iPad using that application. If you are in wireless range while viewing your video, AirVideo will convert almost anything on the fly. VLC works with most video except HD mkv, I think the iPad's processor is a little too slow for it.

    Aura dvd rpper works fine for me, supports many input formats including avi and mkv, you can try.

    I tried the handbreak first and its good. I love VLC so tried that too. It saves the extra step and unless its HD files plays well. I'll use handbreak for the HD stuff and we should be sweet! Thanks for the help.

    I am using AirVideo to convert my movies. You can use Airvideo to convert on the fly or queue a bunch of movies for conversion and add them to itunes for synching and they will be under your video section on your ipad.

    Air video seems to convert almost any movie even .mkv
