    Need a good video converter


    Most all free video converters out there put watermarks on the videos that they produce. Or limit you in other ways. I`m looking for a video converter that will convert my MPG file videos from my camcorder to MP4 format so I can put the videos on my IPAD.
    What is a good converter, which I`ll probably have to pay for, that will convert many diferent formats?
    Thanks

    I use HandBreak to convert videos to M4V (Apple's variant of MP4) for my iPhone. HandBreak is an open-source, cross-platform app that seems to support converting videos for display on an iPad as well.

    I`m using the trial version of that program now, but it costs $65 to register to get the full version. Does this convert almost any format? Cause it will have to in order for me to consider $65.
    I was wondering, there has to be a cheaper program that does the same?

    Like he's said twice now, Handbrake is free. Where do you see it for money?

    YES Handbrake is FREE, but will watermark every video you convert till you pay to get the full version.

    What watermarks? You seem to be talking about a different application than Dan and I are.

    I`m using Handbrake 0.9.5 (2011010300) and the watermark I speak of is in the center of all videos I encode. It has the name "Wondershare" in white letters.

    Under its Wiki it says Handbrake is... "HandBrake is an open-source, GPL-licensed, multiplatform, multithreaded video transcoder, available for MacOS X, Linux and Windows".

    Is this the same program you guys use?

    You stumbled across a company that sells you free software for more than $0. Go get it for free for real from the link I provided.

    I haven't used Handbrake before, but Format Factory and SUPER are both good free video converters also.

    Handbrake for sure. I have also heard of VLC players for iOS. Anyone have any experience with these apps?
