You need to convert to mp4, m4v, or mov.

There are a variety converters--what operating system do you use--MAC, Windows or Linux?

SUPER Media File Converter... it's not pretty, but it will convert just about everything to anything.

There is also another called AVS. It does MANY formats.. not a FREE solution but it is pretty awesome and it can rip a DVD and put it into a file for watching on your Ipad or iphone/ ipod.


I cant remember if the demo lets you have a few free converts or if it stops after a certain time length.

Pretty cheap for the functionality.

You need to convert to mp4, m4v, or mov. The Mpeg4 and Quicktime formats are what apple runs off of.

one day apple may make love with adobe.. but its not
