Introduction


We’ve all been through converting. Tons of devices shoot videos in tons of different formats. All those codecs and formats (and much of other scary stuff) probably won't be available for playback from your other gadgets. Even if you got your video from the World Wide Web – pretty often you won't be able to play it back on your iPad natively. You need to convert a movie to MP4 first. 

Before converting used to be a legit solution. However, with everything speeding up – it got outdated. Let's face it – using of all the chunky convertors is a real headache. It's easy to get tangled in all the settings, tabs, codecs, bitrates and 100500 other terms – jeez, a regular user doesn't have to know all this! In this post we'll show how to keep things simple & get your video to IOS devices, no matter in what format it is.

You sure know this from your experience – getting MKVs or AVIs on your iPhone is a tricky business. If by any chance, your movie is encoded in the incompatible format – iTunes won’t recognize it. iTunes won’t sync it. And it won’t put the movie on your device. This is the issue that WALTR addresses: due to built-in technology this application uses – you don't have to convert your movie beforehand. Drag it. Drop it. Play it. 

There is a whole array of unsupported formats. (it’s easier to enumerate the ones iPhone supports, than the ones that it doesn’t).

FYI:
These formats are compatible: MP4, M4V, M4A, MP3, ALAC, AAC

These formats are NOT compatible:  MKV, AVI, 3GP, WMV, FLAC, APE, M4B, AIFF, WAV, WMA, CUE, OGG, OGA, WV, TTA, DFF, FLV, M2TS, TS;
