I want to make my home videos easily viewable on my iDevices.
I have the following - maybe 100 hours in total
DVDs made from VHS and BETA - 10 hours
DVDs made from miniDV - 50 hours
Clips from digital camera - some in MPEG video low resolution from 2001, some in .MOV h.264 in different resolutions - these are currently in a folder on my iMac - there are hundreds of clips from 10 seconds to 30 minutes
Clips made from iPhones - currently in iPhoto
- hundreds of these of different lengths
I have Handbrake and iVI which is a conversion program I got in the App store.
I would like to eventually edit these I doubt I would do it anytime soon but I do want the option
I want to view these on my iPad, iPhone and Apple TV with an option to upload to youTube or similar
I will do the work now to make it easy to view. But I want to have this set up so its easy to sync new videos to my devices. I want focus on viewing not editing at this point. They are filed by date, monthly.
So do I put them all in iPhoto or iTunes, convert them to all one format?
