In the current digital times, an iPad is one of the most essential technological tools since it is more portable than a laptop; it is easy to carry and can be held in one hand. So, as you use your iPhone to text, make calls and browse through social media, you can use the iPad to watch videos due to its larger screen.

If your videos are stored in your Mac, you may want to transfer them to your iPad, especially if you will be away from the computer for a long while. If they are in MTS files, you may not be able to transfer them, since iPad is incompatible with MTS format. UniConverter is the most reliable tool to convert the MTS files to iPad compatible format so that you can eventually play MTS on iPad.

Part 1: How to Convert MTS Files to iPad Compatible Format

If you would like to play MTS on iPad, you have to convert MTS files to iPad compatible format because an iPad does not support MTS. MTS, short form for MPEG Transport Stream, refers to a video file format known as Advanced Video Coding High Definition (AVCHD). This contains a design meant for HD consumer camcorders like Panasonic, Canon and Sony. You may also refer to MTS as MPEG-4 AVC/ encoded format for videos.

iPad does support codec. However, you can’t play MTS with your iPad and so you need a reliable converter to change the format. UniConverter is the best MTS format converter since it supports this format and iPad series devices, including those supporting ultra-HD retina display like the new iPad model. It is also effortless and effective to handle. It comes with built-in editing tools as well, so that you can edit the video files during the conversion process. These tools include adding watermark and subtitles, trimming, cropping and adding effects. iSkysoft is the ultimate tool to convert your MTS files to videos playable in your iPad.
