Let's look at a few ways to transfer videos to iPad. We will explain how to copy video files from your PC or Windows laptop to iPad so that you will not have to convert to the format that only iPad can read.
We also show how you can download videos without using a computer so you can watch them whenever you want, wherever you are – even if you have no internet connection.
Use third-party videos or apps to transfer videos to iPad
If you sync movies or TV shows stored in your iTunes library, they will appear in the native Video app on your iPad. This is the best way to transfer videos to iPad, but if your video is not in a format that iTunes can reproduce, you will not be able to add it to the library n synchronize it with your iPad.
Furthermore, you can only use one computer to synchronize your iPad. If you try to sync videos from another computer running iTunes, a warning will appear warning you that all your multimedia files will be deleted before syncing them. Good news that there are lots of applications available in the App Store that you can install on your iPad, which can play videos and allow you to "import" video files from any computer running iTunes.
Many of these apps do not require you to convert the video to a native format (ie MP4) before it is played, but you can watch videos in almost any format, including AVI, DIVX, MKV and more. There are also several free applications, including VLC Player, read the guide to watch videos in AVI format on iPad with VLC Player.
Unfortunately, many of these applications have had to remove codecs as a result of legal requests and no longer support surround sound (AC-3 and others). This means that a video file that has this audio format will be able to listen to the audio: you should convert your video with a suitable application to convert surround sound into a stereo format.
