Convert MKV to M4V on Mac

Not all videos can be played on Apple iPad/iPod/iPhone, Apple TV. Or we can say that these Apple products can only support some fixed video formats, such as M4V. But what can you do if you would like to enjoy a video with MKV format on some Apple product? Subler is a nice free converter to convert MVK to M4V. It’s very easy to operate. I will explain the entire process of conversion in details.

Step1. Download and install Perian. Because the Subler cannot work without Perian;

Step2. Download and install Subler;

Step3. Import your MKV video resource to Subler;

Step4. Customize Parameters of output files;

Step5. Click ”Save” button to save the M4V file and select a folder in the “where” box.

Then you will see the “saving” progress. There is no need to wait for a long time in spite of the original size of MKV video resource thanks to the converting speed of Subler. Then the output M4V video can be synced through iTunes to the Apple products which can support M4V format.

The only function of Subler is to convert MKV to M4V. If you have videos with other formats, you have to download some other converters to meet your special needs. It’s too troublesome. So you may consider installing a converter which can convert any video resource available to almost all popular formats, such as Apple iPod/iPad/ iPhone, Apple TV, Blackberry, Nokia, FLV, Mobile Phone, AVI Video,MP4 Video and 3GP video, etc. You can download the DVD to iPad Converter for Mac V3.3.1.

Convert Videos Captured with Camcorders to iPad on Mac

Socusoft DVD to iPad converter has been upgraded with the development of digital products. The latest version is DVD to iPad Converter for Mac V3.3.1.The latest version not only can convert ready-made videos, also can convert AVI files captured by ordinary camcorder and AVCHD MTS/M2TS files captured with camcorders like Sony, Canon, Panasonic and so on with high quality. What’s more, the latest version adds output profiles for iPhone 4/4S, iPad2 and the new iPad. These are the outstanding improvements. I would like to focus on the conversion of the captured video on this page. The whole process of this conversion is similar to the conversion of ready-made videos.

I want to emphasize that not all video converters can meet such need to convert AVI files captured by ordinary camcorder. It can be said as a breakthrough for Socusoft. I will show you how to convert videos captured with camcorders to iPad on Mac in details.

Step1. Transfer the videos resource in your camcorder to your Mac;

Step2. Install the DVD to iPad Converter for Mac V3.3.1 or upgrade to the latest version;

Step3. Run the converter, and then Click the “+” button to import the video files into the program;

Step4. Click the “Profile” box, and choose “iPad” in the drop-down list ;

Step5. Choose “iPad H.264 HD Video” as the output format;

Step6. Click the “Start” button to begin the conversion;

Once the conversion is completed, you will be able to find output files from the output folder of the converter. Then import the output files into iTunes library. Finally, transfer the output files to your iPad connected to the computer previously with the sync of iTunes.

Follow the steps above, you can enjoy your videos on your iPad on the go.

First Apple Store in Hong Kong

The first Apple Store in Hong Kong opened today on 24th September 2011. It is the 6th Apple Store in China, other five Apple Stores are in Beijing and Shanghai while the previous Apple Store was opened in Shanghai yesterday.

Rumor says that these two Apple retail stores chose to open in later September is for the coming Chinese golden week, the 7 days national holiday. Unlike the mainland China, technically HongKong does not celebrate the Chinese national day. However there are a lot of mainland people cross over to Hong Kong to shop for luxury brands, so Apple chose to open its first store in Hong Kong just before the Chinese national holiday is a good timing.

The first Apple Store in Hong Kong is located at International Financial Center Mall of Hong Kong. This is the most busy and upscale CBD area of Hong Kong, a must visit area for mainland tourists.

The store is said to be Apple’s most expensive retail location yet, with estimated construction costs of $20 million.

Huge crowds of Apple fans wait in a queue before the opening of the first Apple retail store in Hong Kong. It is said more than one thousand people queued up in the long line over night along an overpass near Hong Kong Victoria Harbour. According to security guards, the first person in line arrived sometime on Thursday evening, two days before its opening on Saturday.

The first 5,000 Apple fans in line were rewarded with the free T-shirts. It looks like bellow:

The demand over supply created the prosperous “grey market” in Hong Kong, they bought in iPad and iPhones from the grey market then resell for hefty premiums in Hong Kong or smuggle into Shenzhen to sell the iPad in Shenzhen and other cities in China mainland. See Shenzhen iPad Smuggling.

Ironically iPad, iPhone and other Apple products were first assembled by massive Foxconn factory in Shenzhen, then shipped to America. After that Hong Kong businessmen imported the iPad from America through gray market and smuggling into Shenzhen and China mainland again.

Hopefully the rampant smuggling and fake Apple stores will soon stop with more and more official Apple retail store opens in China.
