    Does anyone convert there movies so you can upload to itunes then on to ipad/iphones etc?

    I watched a young dude on youtube and showed me programs to download and how to do it but it seems to take about 5/6/7 hours to convert.

    Does anyone use a program that will be quicker?

    Any help will be appreciated.

    I've just started using Any Video Convertor - quick and easy, now I can watch films on the way to work.

    Real player has an option but if it's a DVD film you'll need to buy something that converts it

    I was using Prism video converter mate, but as i said in the post above i think im sorted bud... And to be honest mate i have no clue about ram and processors etc, i know most of the videos were in avi and i was trying to convert to mp4 i think. Its so i can stick them on my ipad.

    Cheers for your help mate!

    Try handbrake. It is a free software and does a pretty good job. Has presets for apple format. I regularly do this for the missus.

    yes, handbrake is cool, it's free/fast, the only problem is if your source is copyright protected, it can't convert, so you may need some 3rd party tool to do that.

    Have you got Vlc on your computer? That usually plays everything. Unless your pc graphic card cant handle it.
