Sorry but as I have explained I am totally new with IPAD.
Where can I find "total converter software" ?
Do I have to download it on my PC or my Ipad ?
To import the files afetr conversion do I have to use Itunes ?
Thnak you

Jose,

You should just be able to open the mpg from iTunes.  That will add it to the iTunes library and from there it will synch to the iPad.

Sorry Jason but Ipad doesn't read MPG. On the other hand I do not see specifically how to input an MPG movie in the itunes library. I have tried everything. Can you help telling me step by step what I have to do to insert a movie in mpg to the library.
Thanks
José

Hainaux,

1. MPG files have to be converted to MP4 before they can play on iPad. I used Handbrake a free software to convert the MPG file to MP4. It is available from http://handbrake.fr/
2. You can then connect your iPad, and follow the tutorial available on the following link

3. Hope this helps

I have converted  a small mpg with handbrake, transferred to Ipad2 with Itunes and it works. Playing the small video on the Ipad works but the beginning of the video is blurred during 2 seconds and afterwards becomes accurate. Do you know the reason ?
It is a hard job to do that for a long movie ! but it is worth it in some cases.
I have given to you the 500 points you certainly deserve for me.
Thank you for your help

Thanks a lot Hainaux. I feel the quality issue may be due to the video itself. I did a conversion of a video required at my Office and it seemed to be fine. My suggestions:

1. Try converting other available video files and test. If it a file issue, this test will help you isolate that
2. Else try playing with some presents on Handbrake. Experimenting with it may help you identify the preset that works best for you
