"I am trying to sync various videos I made on my MAC to my iPad Air and some say they are not supported on the iPad Air. 'Info' says the accepted ones are mpeg which is fine but the rejected ones are QT files made on iMovie. It seems that the iPad should accept and play quick time file made with Apple software. What gives? Do I have to change the format on the MAC, and if so, how?"
Several questions brought up above might have been unanswered, which can be sorted out as follows:
1. What are iPad (iPad Air/2 or iPad mini) supported video/auido formats?
2. How to transfer QuickTime files to iPad 6/5/4…?
3. How to convert any video to iPad Air/2 compatible formats?
