    I just bought an iPad and I am loving it. I also just purchased iMovie and Photosync because I was under the impression that I was going to be able to transfer my movies from my PC to my iPad so I could edit them. How do I convert my videos to an extension that the iPad wold recognize so I can do this? I have already tried to download some free app that converts it but it took forever and the video turned out all green looking. Please help!

    Thanks

    Handbrake is a great open source solution, but there are literally tons of software out there that can transcod video to iPad format

    apple and ipad best recognize MOV and MP4 movie formats, but i think imovie will only let you edit movies actually shot with the app in the first place.

    Download " Total Video Converter " , easy to use and can convert an episode of a series in 15 mins, a regular avi.file 700mb in 20-30 mins.
