Want to import WMV movies, either from Windows or other sources, on your Mac to iPad for convenient entertainment? In order to do so, you need to convert WMV to iPad friendly format first on Mac, because iPad does support MOV, MP4 and M4V formats instead of WMV, which then requires you to get a video converter as your assistant.
Since not all Mac Video Converters support iPad, and some of them work really unsatisfying: taking too much time to convert WMV to iPad format, losing much video quality etc. And then you are likely to get all the way to the end only to discover that your video file isn't playable on iPad or iPad 3G (iPad 2, new iPad included). So as to help you out, this article shows you an extremely easy way to accomplish the WMV to iPad Mac conversion with the help of a professional iSkysoft iPad Video Converter for Mac (Mac OS X Lion included):
