    Hi guys I just got the ipad2 64 gig

    I have a ton of movies on my computer and I want to put them on an ipad for watching on a plane.

    I hear you need to convert them to watch.

    So I have a few questions.

    1. What format should I convert the movies too?

    2. What program would you recommend?

    3. What app should I use to watch on ipad. I have a jailbroken ipad 2.

    convert it to mp4. Using Handbrake a free program ( google it), you can use the video app that comes with your ipad ;)

    OK - there are a lot of threads on the Forum about converting movies but I've moved your post to the Hacking section, because there may be some specific JB issues. I use Handbrake (it's free) on my non-JB iPad; it has a specific setting for iPads, so converting is very simple.

    If you're not into "converting" there are many movie player apps in the app store that play multiple formats.

    Personally I use AVplayerHD...support for divx, avi, mkv, wmv.....etc...etc

    Also allows to transfer movies over wifi to the app & bypassing having to use iTunes.
