How to Convert MPG/MPEG to The New iPad (iPad 4)
MPG/MPEG is not an iPad-compatible format. If you have a lot of MPG/MPEG files and want to watch them on your new iPad 4, you'll want to convert MPG/MPEG to iPad 4 using a third-party software tool. This article presents how to accomplish this task using such a tool. With it, I'll bet you can easily enjoy your wonderful MPG/MPEG digital content on iPad 4 with the original audio and video quality.
The MPG/MPEG to the new iPad 4 conversion process is very simple. There is an optimized preset you can directly select as the output format. When the conversion is over, you can sync the output file to iPad 4 via iTunes. Next, I'll show you the detailed steps on the basis of Window platform. For Mac users, you can also refer to this guide because the operation procedures are highly similar, or go to Mac users' Guide.
Step 1: Run the MPG/MPEG to iPad converter and load MPG/MPEG files
After you launch this app, you need to load your MPG/MPEG files. To do this, you have two different ways. One is to go to "Convert" tab > "Add Files" menu to browse and add MPG/MPEG files to the program. The other is to directly drag and drop the target files to this app.
Step 2: Set output format or customize output settings
If you want to select the optimized preset for iPad (iPad 3, iPad 4 included), you can click the format icon in the "Output Format" pane, open the drop-down format list, and then go to "Device">"Apple">"iPad".
But if you want to select the specified video format for iPad like MP4, you can also go to "Format">"Video">"MP4". Of course, you can customize the detail output settings for more compatibility. Just set Encoder, Resolution, Frame rate and Bit rate etc in the "Settings" window, according to iPad 4's tech specs (see attached list).
Step 3: Start to convert MPG/MPEG to iPad 4
Hit "Convert" to convert MPG/MPEG files to the new iPad. When the conversion is over, an "Open Folder" option will be available. You can directly hit it to find the output files. And then, you can sync the output files to iPad via iTunes.
Note: Before conversion, if you want to edit your MPG/MPEG files, there are some useful editing functions for your help. Add effect, watermark, and subtitles etc.
