    trfr mp4 from mob to iPad
    never know where to post these odd questions....

    I found some instruction on web on how to do this and not necessarily using iTunes.
    I followed the instructions and thought I had it made but when I dragged my mp4 file to iPad screen..message popped up
    saying I needed to download a video app in order for file to play and that it could be found in App Store.
    I did not know which they wanted an am stuck.
    does anyone know about this?

    I moved your post to this section where it may be seen by more members with an intyerest in video.

    It sounds like there might be something wrong with the settings when the file was saved as an mp4. Try member ferrar's suggestion of using VLC. The desktop version can play almost anything and I bet the IOS version can do likewise.

    If that doesn't solve the problem post a link to the directions you're using to convert/transfer the file. perhaos we can identify the problem.

    Suggest setting up Photostream which will automatically sync video from phone to iPad, or use AirDrop.
