I want to convert some keynote presentations into a quicktime format and want to play them on my iPad.  Is there a quicktime player for the iPad?

    Sure. Sync your movies in an iPad-friendly format with iTunes will show the Videos in the "iPod" on the iPad. That's the build-in QuickTime Player. Also when open a website with an video that could be played by the iPad, the QuickTime Player will automatically pop up and play back the movie.

    You might find the iPad User's Guide for helpful:

     

    http://manuals.info.apple.com/en_US/ipad_2_user_guide.pdf

     

    The information on synching starts on page 24. As to exporting from Keynote to a QuickTime movie, just choose the Export command from the File menu.

     

    Regards.

    Syncing is one of the critical features of an iOS device.  As Dave mentioned, the manual is a good palce to start but it is quite long.  Utilize the search function of your PDF reader. 

     

    Also, here are a few online tutorials...

    And, if you're near an Apple store, many of them provide free training on their products.

    You need to sync the movie to the iPad. Information on how to do this is in the manual and in the tutorials linked to by Paul.

     

    And any movie exported from Keynote should be suitable for the iPad. There's even an iPod preset choice in the Keynote Export that you can use which will add the movie right into iTunes, though that preset gives a somewhat lower resolution than the iPad can support.

     

    Regards.

    Hi there,

    I'm reopening this topic:

    I managed to import Quicktime films, but it was impossible to read a Quicktime VR project, that could be a must on a client's presentation with an iPad.

    Is there a way to read VR?

     

    Thanks for your answer...
