I am having trouble getting video clips that I download from Discovery Education to play on my class' iPads.  When I download them to my MacBook they are .mov files but to my knowledge the iPads only play .mp4.  I have seen some converters on line, but I am sure my school system is not going to pay for a video converter, and I have no interest in paying for software that will be on my school systems computer.  Any suggestions?

My go to tool for most things Video is the VLC player.  It has got me out of more binds than I care to remember!


It will convert videos to  H.264+ACC MP4's which I'm unsure will play on an IPAD, though.


Good luck with it!



I like Any Video Converter and it's free!  My school district downloads it onto our computers :)
Thanks for the suggestions!  I'll give them a shot and see which one I like the best.
I use handbrake (opensource!) to convert various files into mp4/mkv to play on my iPad. It's a solid program.
