How to convert iPad videos to Windows Movie Maker?
How to convert iPad videos to Windows Movie Maker? So I took videos on my iPad for a class project, and I need to get it onto my computer to work with Windows Movie Maker. I emailed the videos to myself and downloaded the free QuickTime, but now it won't import into Windows Movie Maker. So my question is how do I convert and get iPad videos onto WMM? Thanks!
