I'm receiving a lot of emails from people asking what preset to use to convert movies optimized for the latest iPad Air and iPad Mini Retina.
For these you need to go to the "Preference" tab and select "iPad Retina" in the "Optimize for:" drop down select box.
I will make this more explicit in the next version of Movies2iPhone.
For now I wish you all an Happy New Year and the very best for 2014! :-)
downloads and counting
The iPhones, iPods and iPads are wonderful devices. However when it comes to play videos they turn out to be very picky.
Indeed, these Apple products only accept to play movies encoded in a very specific format: the so called mp4 format.
Movies2iPhone converts any video (Divx, Xvid, avi, mpeg, wmv, asf, mov, vob, flv (flash), 3gp, mkv, etc...) to a format optimized for your iPhone, iPod or iPad.
It is extremely easy to use, free for non-commercial use and does NOT require your iPhone/iPod/iPad to be "JailBroken".
Movies2iPhone currently runs under Windows Xp, Vista, Seven (32 & 64 bits) and Mac OSX Leopard (10.5), Snow Leopard (10.6), Lion (10.7) and Mountain Lion (10.8).
Movies2iPhone currently support the following iDevices:
Movies2iPhone uses FFmpeg.
FFmpeg is a fantastic command line program that can record, convert and stream digital audio and video in a wide range of formats.
In particular, it can convert most video format in the mp4 format. A video format compatible with the iPhone, iPod and iPad.
But since it is command line driven and uses an enormous amount of configuration parameters, it is prety hard to use.
Movies2iPhone acts as a front end for FFmpeg, it creates an easy to use graphical interface for FFmpeg, dedictated to one single task: Converting videos to the iPhone/iPod/iPad format.
FFmpeg is a trademark of Fabrice Bellard, originator of the FFmpeg project.
