Apple iPad is a full entertainment house especially due to its reliable battery backup and despite the presence of numerous apps and games, the old video visualizing seems to be the most preferred entertainment source. By default Apple iPad plays .m4v.mp4 and .mov files, but some people may find problems playing such files too. This problem mainly arises due to two factors, either there is a problem with the website you’re getting your videos from or alternatively there might be a resolution incompatibility. The later can be adequately corrected by opening the desired video in QuickTime and then re-saving it to 720p which work fine with the iPad.
Also you can convert the Videos to formats supported by iPad using different software like AVIDEMUX 2. AVIDEMUX 2 actually helps you to watch files like AVI, DivX or MKV on your iPad by changing the wrapping of these files, which means that only the cover of your video is changed and not the exact content.

Depending on the quality of video output you want to attain on your iPad you can maneuver through a variety of settings to get the desired result but the more you stress on quality, the more time it will take to convert.
The third method by which you can watch most of the video formats on your iPad is to download apps that will precisely do just that.
