iPad can't recognize flash video which means you can neither transfer FLV video to iPad to play, nor open FLV mail attachments on your iPad. So if you want to play FLV video on iPad (new iPad included), here's how.
iPad can only play video in MOV, MP4 or M4V which is encoded with MPEG-4 or H.264. So if you have some flash videos on your Mac and want to play on iPad on the move, you can use iSkysoft Video Converter for Mac to convert FLV to iPad compatible format first. The converter is top-ranking in converting video in all popular format with ultra-fast conversion speed. With high compatibility with Apple products, the software additionally provides some useful presets for iPad, iPhone, iMovie and more to simplify your conversions.
Add FLV video to the Mac app
Install and launch the Mac converter, drag & drop the video files in FLV or other formats directly to the Mac Converter. The number of imported files is not limited, i.e, batch conversions are supported which will definitely save your time a lot.
Set the output format
To select the output format, in the main interface, click the format icon on the item to open the output video setting window, where you can click the format box to drop down the format list, go to Apple section and choose iPad preset.
Start the FLV conversion
At the bottom right corner of the main interface, click the Convert button and let the Mac Video Converter finish the rest. After the conversion, the output folder will open automatically.
Transfer the file to iPad via iTunes
Connect your iPad to the Mac and launch your iTunes. Go to File > Add to library and load the converted video files to the library. After that, sync the videos to your iPad.
That's all. Have fun!
