    Ok, how do I put my wmv files on DVD so I can watch them?
    Would I have to convert it to an mpeg file ? If I do, what are good freeware software to use? Thanks

    You could try the free ffmpegX (http://ffmpegx.com/index.html), which is a highly flexible video converter/encoder (and I believe does WMV as well)... it does require the installation of some UNIX components, however I think this is done through the self-installer.

    You can even use the Pages app that is installed on your computer. Finally you can buy a license of Office for Mac and have Word, Excel, PowerPoint and if you want Outlook too.

    How can I watch a DVD playing on my iMac on my TV using Apple TV?

    You can't. The only way is to transfer the movie to your computer and import to iTunes (making sure it is compatible) and either use home-sharing or airplay the movie off an ios device.

    You can use a program like Carbon Copy Cloner.  It will clone your HD to the external.  The format is the same as your internal drive and you can boot from it using Option key at boot time.

    How do I get a .mov file from my iMac to my iPad?

    Hi Mike in CoS,
    Welcome to the Support Communities!
    What app did you use to create the .mov file?  Apps like iMove or Final Cut Pro X have options to Share to iTunes to create a compatible version for the iPad.   If you don't have the option to export the file again, then try the steps outlined in this article:
    iTunes: Videos may be unable to sync to iPhone, iPad, or iPod
    http://support.apple.com/kb/ts1497
    Here is some more general information about syncing videos:
    iTunes: Frequently asked questions about viewing and syncing videos

    I hope this information helps ....
    Have a great day!

  • How is it best to keep files synced between iMac and Macbook?  I work from home on my iMac and then out in meetings on my Macbook and need to have access to the same files on both.

    How is it best to keep files synced between iMac and Macbook?  I work from home on my iMac and then out in meetings on my Macbook and need to have access to the same files on both.  The folders are using Microsoft programmes as this is compatiable with 90% of my colleagues, therefore I can't use the Icloud service.

    No, the camera connection kit only supports the copying of photos and videos to the Photos app, it doesn't support copying content off the iPad. For your second camera instead of the SD reader part of the kit, does the iPad to camera cable not work with it for direct transfer to the iPad ?
    For Lightroom and Nikon software again no - you can only install apps that are available in the iTunes app store on your computer and the App Store app on the iPad, 'normal' PC and Mac (OS X) software are not compatible with the iPad (iOS). There are some apps that perform fairly basic editing functions that are available in the store, but nothing as sophisticated as, for example, Lightroom.

  • How do I watch videos (.mov files) from my iphone 5 on my windows vista pc?

    Hi I've downloaded my videos from my iphone 5 to my PC which runs Windows Vista, but I cannot work out how to play the videos (.mov files)
    I've tried the latest Quicktime player (7.7.6) and also Quicktime 7.6 and the audio plays fine but the video is slow and jumpy. The video plays fine on my iphone.
    I've tried iTunes on my pc but I have the same problem.
    The problem is even worse with VLC media player in that the image is distorted and pixelated, but again the audio is fine.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance.

    You need to import the videos to iTunes and synch via iTunes

    Known from your profile, that your OS is windows 7, and maybe famous Total Video Converter from Effectmatrix can help  you.   I moved from Windows to Mac 2010, and had been using Total Video Converter on Windows from 2005 until I switched to Mac.  And now its Mac version is my good friend for video conversion.

  • How do I access and transfer files on my iMac to my MacBook using bluetooth?

    Hi there, I would like to know how to access files on my iMac and transfer them to my Mac Book Pro using Bluetooth, if this is possible?

    I agree with Ogelthorpe. Bluetooth is not an appropriate way to transfer files between two computers.
    Additionally to the Firewire method, you can set up File Sharing (System Preferences - Sharing) on the computer you're transferring TO, then you'll see it in the MBP's Finder sidebar if you're on the same wireless or wired network. If you're transferring a lot of files, connect with network cables to your router unless your wireless network is very fast.
