In Conclusion

If you were already looking all over the internet, you probably stumbled upon people always suggesting ‘handbrake’ or ‘macxdvd’ to convert your WMVs to MP4, of course, if you know the correct format and codec settings. After that you can sync the outcome from those apps into your iTunes and then put them onto your lovely iPad – this really does solve it: but it just sounds too much of a hassle.

Apple made it so you can’t naturally play your WMVs (or any other file types like MKV or AVI) on any iPad or iPhone device. It’s simply one more of the highly-demanded formats that Apple does not support. We put an end to this and broke through the barrier between MKV, AVI, FLAC & your iPad, iPhone and iPod. Movies in 720p & 1080p are really a crystal piece of pleasure that you can get when watching it on an iPad’s retina screen.

WALTR really makes it a piece of cake to convert WMV to MP4 for iPad or iPhone – there’s no other way you can put content in various formats to Apple devices that easy! So don’t hesitate, try it out right now! If you have any questions – let us know in the comments section!
