Watching movies on iPad, you deserve more free iPad movies

Thin, light, Multi-touch screen, LED-backlit IPS display, A4 chip, expansive onscreen keyboard, crisp iBooks, powerful Safari, and more. That’s the way Apple has made iPad such an amazing portable panel. Surely you can surf on the net, send emails, share photos, listen to music and read text books on iPad, but most important of all, the beautiful 9.7-inch high-resolution display makes iPad perfect for watching any videos: from Youtube top-rated videos, video shootings, to HD movies and TV shows up to 1280*720. Although the native supported video formats by iPad are restricted to H.264 and MPEG-4 encoded MP4, M4V and MOV, there are plenty ways to turn all your video collections into iPad movies. In the following guide you’ll learn how to customize movies for iPad out of DVDs, blu-ray discs, TV shows, web videos, etc, and transfer movies to iPad for watching.

“How do I watch movies on iPad?”
There are two methods for you to watch movies on iPad. In the first place, the iTunes Store offers thousands of movies for you to rent (and buy), including HD movies. You just need to tap the iTunes icon on the home screen of iPad and rent the movies as you do on a PC or Mac. What if I want to watch movies without WiFi on iPad? Don’t worry, you can put your movies to iPad and watch them whenever you like. Comparing with renting iPad movies, most users prefer to sync their movie collections from iTunes library to iPad.

Why not sync movies to iPad for flight or train ride?
In order to copy movies from PC/ Mac to iPad, you must make sure that the video you want to stream be accepted by iPad. Here you may refer to iPad-compatible videos types by Apple’s official site:
H.264 video up to 720p, 30 frames per second, Main Profile level 3.1 with AAC-LC audio up to 160 Kbps per channel, 48kHz, stereo audio in .m4v, .mp4, and .mov file formats;

Motion JPEG (M-JPEG) up to 35 Mbps, 1280 by 720 pixels, 30 frames per second, audio in ulaw, PCM stereo audio in .avi file format.

Open iTunes, copy the movies to your iTunes Library (follow “File”>> “Add File to Library” to add movies to iTunes Library), and connect iPad with your computer.
