Videos can only be added to your iPad via iTunes. You can tell GOM Video Converter to send MP4 files to your iTunes library automatically after converting. Connect your iPad to your computer before you start converting.

*This is an example of syncing video files manually to the iPad.

1. Launch GOM Video Converter and add the desired videos to the conversion list on the main window.
* You can add several video files and convert them all at once.

3. Click on [+] button next to “Apple” and choose iPad/iPad 2 (Normal Quality)  from the list, then click the [Apply] button.

5. On the video conversion window that pops up, choose the “Add the output file to the iTunes library(.MP4 only)” option to automatically add the videos to iTunes after conversion is complete.

6. Click [OK] when the “Conversion Complete” message pops up.
