    Hi all just got the iPad and love it! Never used apple products before and I want to transfer some videos to the iPad from a Windows laptop for watching when convenient. Please can you tell me what settings are best for the iPad in terms of resolution and frame rate etc?

    Also there seems to be a multitude of software out thee to do this - anybody aware of a product that stands out over the rest?

    Thanks in anticipation :)

    I would go to the app store and buy AV Player HD and all your problems will be solved

    I use DVFab8 in my windows machine to put my kids movies in there iPods, how ever the other night after we purchase a movie for the kids I tried in the iPad and works great in there as well.

    However is you not doing movies the proper setup is a iRuthlessPad say.

    Playing videos on the iPad are a pain in the ass. Apple sucks lol

    On a lighter note I like the AirPlay app. You can stream videos direct from your pc and while your watching them your pc does all the work of converting the files.

    Create your own thread and post your question mate

    that way you get a wider audience that may solve it:)
