    For those of you thats not familiar with video conversion for the old trusty iPod or iPhone these free apps for Mac and PC will help you out in a snap to convert your fav videos to iPad.

    Yes, I know that iTunes will do it aswell but in order for this to happen it needs to be in mp4, mov format already! These apps will convert anything you throw at it (maybe not flash, but Apple Quicktime will take care of that for a price!)

    Great post. Maybe it will prevent some of the spammers from posting about there video converters.

    For me I recommend Handbrake. It does a great job. It has an AppleTV preset that should work for the iPad so you don't have to mess the individual settings unless you want to.

    There is also a hardware device -- a usb-stick called Turbo.264.HD from Elgato. It is just about the fastest conversion method there is. On my older Intel iMac Handbrake will take about three hours to convert a movie from avi to mp4. Turbo will do it in an hour or so. One caveat is that Handbrake's conversion is better, depends on your use. For a screen the size of the iPad's the Turbo.264 is great. Even for Apple TV on a normal TV. But if you are going to be hooked up to a 1080p 52" HDTV you may want to spend the extra hours with Handbrake.

    Realplayer can be downloaded for free. Anything that can be played in Realplayer can be converted by the program to itunes format.

    Any news if Handbrake will be available for the IPad? or is it a mute point.........

    I think it would be cool if they would allow at least storage of the offending non-apple supported file format until Hanbrake could convert it on the IPad directly and then delete the original.

    I just checked the Hbrake site and they have been working on an IPad preset since May '09, but nothing like what I posted.

    You are correct, I thought hb was only for Mac, now there's three apps for windows to convert. Thanks for the clarification.

    Another way, and it saves space too, is Air Video. This app allows you to play videos stored on your computer and will convert as you watch, instead of filling up your ipad with videos or spending hours converting them. Also, Real Player (even the free version) will convert to ipod format.

    I use MEGUI. No custom iPad profiles yet, but there are all the other Apple profiles, which you can work from. Its more of a advanced encoder for the experienced. You can cut, change resolution, bitrate, audio options, etc...

    I think I do...but I don't have my ipad yet to test it :( (3G)

    I use video monkey, which is who is continuing the isquint source code.

    I use the apple TV setting. it outputs the file in the correct screen resolution for the ipad. but, I use the lowest video quality setting (~600mb movie). when viewed in a window the same size as ipad, it seems great. I will let you know Friday.

    I previously ripped my DVDs with handbrake
