    Just received my iPad and am disappointed to find that my cameras video is not supported on the iPad. I have a Canon SD970 IS and the video is a .mov format. Does anyone know what type of video the iPad supports? Anything I can do to get the video from my camera to play on the iPad
    Thanks

    iPad video converter

    I believe you don't have an iphone this why you are a little lost

    just download ''Handbrake'' witch is free and convert all your movie in the format MP4 and ''Voila''

    My pleasure don't forgot to put the video on the video folder of your computer .. after that you close and re-open your iTunes and it will sync the video automatically

    enjoy your toy's

    You know - perhaps someone who has the wifi model could do some experimentation. I normally convert over to the Apple TV setting (since that's what I have). Ipad ONe - what conversion setting do you thing would work best for the iPad for best quality and then for most efficient memory?

    BTW - as this forum starts moving forward perhaps it should be divided into sections like productivity, e-mail, gaming, video, etc. That way when someone comes up with a great tip for something it can be filed in the right place.

    iPad video format

    David yet i can't reply as i have to wait tuesday for receive in my small place my iPad, what i can say is handbrake will work perfectly for iPad as he work for iPhone ... over the web you can find hundred of paid converter and they didn't work better ... but it's the rule of the business , people rlee don't know will paid for a converter can be find for free ....

    Concerning your remark about the forum .. as we are yet the best forum for iPad lot of improvement need to be made ..we need to be patient to give to Dan, Max, and Doug the time for made the change

    Russ,

    You may also be able to change some settings in the camera to make the format more compatible.

    Thanks Handbrake is working great. I assume Apple TV is the best setting to use, not sure? Best of all its FREE

    Guess this is one of the draw backs of the iPad. I usually upload my camera photos and video via wifi to Picasa and my desktop automatically with the EyFi card in my camera..Videos always play when I access Picasa on my netbook or laptop...but unfortunately not with the iPad. Oh well, still love the iPad but it definately has quite a few drawbacks
    Thanks again

    ipad has better support for MP4 ,M4V and M4P video , if your video is not in these format , you need to convert your video with some video convetrer . i usually use Cucusoft ipad video converter to do the job,works great for me .
