    you can just get AirVideo and it will be able to convert videos, videos can even be converted in queue.

    Then later on you can just go in folders and copy it over.

    Do you guys leave your setting as universal on the right hand side or what are the best settings you have found for the Ipad in Handbrake ?

    Thanks

    Depends on your computer and the original input.

    I use the universal Normal setting in Handbrake and set the quality to 60% to reduce the file size a bit. Quality is still very good on the iPad.

    the absolute easiest converter I've used so far is the desktop server app for AirVideo. it allows you to queue up videos from the iPad and convert on your desktop. the resulting file is an m4v that is usually comparable to the original file quality and only half the size. the conversion quality and settings are all configurable from the iPad itself. it's excellent!



    EDIT: P.S. the server software is Mac/Windows compatible. cheers!

    I use air video's on the fly transcoding. It even handles MKV files just fine, streaming with no sync or quality issues and you can access it from the internet as well. Since more than half of my iPad is loaded with Apps I don't have room to also put videos on there, crap I don't even have room to put music on there really except a few choice playlists worth. Irks me badly that I did not think about the apps being larger size and decided on the 16GB version but it seems with a Camera kit this won't be an issue anymore.
