Top iPad WMV Converter – Convert/Play WMV files on iPad 2 with high quality

iPad 2 is really an excellent device to watch videos on. Wether it is via Hulu, Netflix or from a local video file, playback is high quality and perfectly smooth. However, if you intend to transfer some .wmv files to iPad 2 for enjoyment, you will find playback is a blue moon. The fact is that the iPad 2 can only play certain video formats, such as H.264/MPEG-4 MP4, MOV, M4V. So before downloading and viewing the WMV files on iPad 2, we may have to either convert or re-encode this file to be an MPEG-4 or H.264 (.mp4 or .m4v) file format in order to sync correctly to an iPad. Here I’m sharing my experience to those who feel like putting wmv videos to iPad 2. Before the workaround, let’s take a look at some discussions about WMV to iPad 2:

Q1: How do I get “wmv” files to play on my Ipad2?

Q2: I cannot play a .wmv email attachment after it downloads?

Q3: How do I transfer a WMV video file to my ipad? – I have video clips on my home computer that I would like to transfer to my ipad. They are in WMV form. How do I put them on my ipad?

As far as I know, to solve this problem, we need a video covnerter app to convert wmv files for iPad 2. Here I take Pavtube Video Converter as an example. The program is an all-in-one video converter and editor tool. Besides WMV, you can input videos include TiVo, VP6, MXF, VRO, MTS, M2TS, AVI, MKV, FLV, VOB, MVI, EVO, MOV, MPG, and more to convert for iPad. The equivalent Mac version is Pavtube Video Converter for Mac. Just get the right one according to your situation. Below is how.

The easy way to convert/watch WMV videos on iPad 2 with high quality

One. Run this WMV to iPad 2 converter on your computer. Run it and add your WMV files.

Two. Select an iPad friendly format, e.g. H.264 .mp4 for conversion. Here I recommend you select “iPad 2 Video(*.mp4)” in “iPad” category. This profile is specially designed for iPad and iPad 2. Click on “Settings” you could easily set bitrate, frame rate, codec, channels, sample rate, etc to adjust parameters that affect video quality and file size for the video you prefer.

Below is the best format settings for iPad per my experience:Video
Codec- H.264
Resolution- 1280×720/1280×800 (HD)
Bitrate- 1500/2000kbps
Framerate- 25fps

Codec- AAC
Sampling rate- 44.1khz
Bitrate- 160kbps
Channel- stereo

The supported resolution of iPad 2 goes up to 1080p, though video playback and most apps never break out of 720p. For watching videos on the Apple Tabelet, 720p with 1500~2000kbps is just all right. I find that bitrate higher results in big file size, and lower visible quality loss.

Tips- Edit function is very useful in the best iPad 2 WMV converter.
You can edit the video before conversion. Trim, Crop and Watermark functions are useful and convenient.

Three. After the above steps, start the conversion from WMV to iPad 2 sMP4 by clicking on “convert” button.

After the conversion is finished, you should transfer the result videos to iPad 2. So there you have it. Now just enjoy and watch wmv videos on iPad 2 smoothly.
