Camcoders are becoming more prevalent. As camcorder brings great convenience and benefits to us, it causes some trouble as well, namely the issue of handling the recorded footage. From time to time, we keep on hearing users asking question like "I shoot some home vidoes by Canon FS100, but how can I play the files on iPad Mini 2, please?" In fact, it is not difficult to solve this problem. Before finding out the solution, two things we should get straight first:

1. Camcorder Format: by some web-surfing, we know that Canon FS100 captures and saves videos in the MOD - a file-based video file which is actually MPEG-2 files with AC3 audio. It can be played on VLC and MPlayer players.

2. iPad Mini(iPad Mini 2 included) Specs: the specs of iPad Mini 2 tell us that it supports MP4, MOV, M4V, MPEG-4, H.264 and M-JPEG formats natively.

Tips: iPad Mini 2 Supported Format:
