I have a video that I shot on my iPhone. It's a 5 minute continuo

Customer Question

I have a video that I shot on my iPhone. It's a 5 minute continuous shot of passing scenery shot through the side window of a van. I want to mount three iPads next to each other on a wall and have the video move from the first to the second to the third as if you are watching the passing scene through three adjacent windows. I see two major issues I have to solve: how do I divide the existing video frames into thirds, one for each iPad, and how do I sync the three iPads? Or am I going about this all wrong. My only video editing experience is with iMovie.

You might be able to use VLC media player to split the video, but let me see if the iOS version can handle this.

Sorry actually only the desktop version can do it...
Expert:  dresteve2000 replied 1 year ago.
I don't think you would be able to achieve this using iPads. The simplest way to do it would be to use a computer and hook 3 displays to it.

How would I configure the hardware and how prepare the video to make that work?
Expert:  dresteve2000 replied 1 year ago.
So you would need a computer with 3 video outputs. Then you would play the video in VLC and use this method to split the frames: http://grok.lsu.edu/article.aspx?articleid=14623

Thanks. I'll spend some time with both of these options when I'm done with a couple of other projects. I appreciate your help.
