Play flash(flv/f4v) videos on iPad 2

The newly released iPad 2 does look like a very well-designed and beautiful device. It may be used to search the Internet, watch movies and videos, listen to music, use art programs, read/send e-mail, read e-books, play games, keep a calendar, watch TV, use maps, or to look at and organize photos. The iPad, however, won't run flash content at all. That means you won't be able to watch videos from Hulu and the adobe flash is kept away from your touch. Still you could watch the flash videos downloaded from Youtube or Hulu on iPad------Pavtube FLV Converter could convert flash videos (*.flv, *.f4v) to H.264 or MPEG-4 encoded videos that are compatible with iPad. The following guide tells how to convert flash videos to play on iPad 2 with Pavtube FLV Converter.


Step 1. Run FLV to iPad Converter and load in flash videos.
First, you Install the FLV Converter and get your FLV files ready, run the app and click "Add" button to import FLV files to the app (or simply drag the source files to file list.) Double-click on it if you'd like to preview a file or take some snapshots.

Step 2. Set output format to be compatible with iPad
You will then tick the format bar and choose an appropriate format for iPad. MP4, MOV, M4V encoded with H.264 and MPEG-4 are available. Specify output format and next output path. Click on "Settings" button in case you wanna change its codec, bitrate, size, frame rate, audio channel, etc. For example, set audio codec as AAC.



Step 3. Convert the FLV, F4V videos
When all these are done, you can click "Convert" button to start. If you'd like to put some flashes into one file, simply check the box "Merge into one file" before clicking "Convert". After conversion finished, you may sync the converted video clips to iPad for playback.

Is there a way to edit the screen ratio on my iPad 3 HD?


There is no way to edit the screen ratio on the new iPad or any iPad for that matter. They went with 4:3 because the majority of users use the device to browse the internet and read e-magazines or e-books on it. As you know the screen gets cut off when you go to fullscreen or it has those annoying black bars above and below.
If you're looking to watch video do it on a computer or your TV. The new iPad isn't made for heavy video watching IMO.
