    Transcode DJI Phantom 4 4K MP4 to iPad for enjoying

    This article will discuss how to convert and downsize DJI Phantom 4 4K for playback on iPad Pro/Air/Mini/4/3/2 without hassle. Keep on reading.

    The Phantom 4 is the best consumer drone that DJI has released to date. It takes everything you may loved about the Phantom 3 Professional and improves upon it. Well, many DJI users will admit to have found DJI 4K video difficult to drop or transfer into iPad Pro/Air/Mini/4/3/2 for purposes of playing. Below is the easy answer to copy DJI Phantom 4 4K to iPad for playback. If you have the similar demand, read on.

    Although the drone streams 720p HD footage back to a smartphone or tablet attached to the remote control from the sky, the Retina HD display of iPad Air 2 or iPad Pro can't hold or play 4K videos easily. Why? First, you should at first realize the following cruel fact that iPad Air 2 screen resolution is only 2048 * 1536 and iPad Pro has a resolution of 2732 * 2048 (for 12.9-inch) and 2048 * 1536 (for 9.7-inch). However, the 4K videos required to be play on at least 3840×2160 (16:9) or 4096×2160 (17:9) resolution screen. Therefore, the large file size from DJI Phantom 4 (Pro) is not supported well by iPad.

    Worse still, in order to successfully add 4K MP4 movie files from Phantom 4 to iTunes and transfer MP4 to iPad Pro/Air/Mini/4/3/2, your MP4 video shall meet the following specs:

    *H.264 video up to 1080p, 60 frames per second, High Profile level 4.2 with AAC-LC audio up to 160 Kbps, 48kHz, stereo audio in .m4v, .mp4, and .mov file formats;

    *MPEG-4 video up to 2.5 Mbps, 640 by 480 pixels, 30 frames per second, Simple Profile with AAC-LC audio up to 160 Kbps per channel, 48kHz, stereo audio in .m4v, .mp4, and .mov file formats.

    If your MP4 files from Phantom 4 does not meet the requirement, your iPad will refuse to open and play.

    Contrary to you, since iTunes store is selling 4K resolution videos, and I can watch iTunes 4K resolution movies on my Apple devices. So I would like to convert iTunes 4K files to non-Apple devices.
    In order to prevent unlicensed sharing, iTunes movies and TV shows are encrypted by FairPlay DRM technology. So this could be the biggest problem when you convert iTunes movies to non-Apple devices. If you want to play iTunes movies on other devices, you should remove DRM protection and convert them to other common formats firstly. Fortunately, there is an iTunes media converter software that can solve two things mentioned above. With the help of iTunes video converter mac, you can break the iTunes DRM lock and transfer M4V files to common formats, like MP4 at the same time. If you are interested in this software, you can click here to learn more. So if you don't want to meet so many problems, you can use it to play iTunes movies and TV shows on non-Apple devices.

    To be honest, we have no rights to play iTunes m4v files on Apple unauthorized devices, since all iTunes videos are encrypted with DRM(Digital Rights Management) protection, it can be played on Apple devices only. If you really want to enjoy it, you have to get rip of DRM protection at first. With DRM removal program, now we will be able to watch all iTunes M4V files on any devices freely. The tool for me is iTunes M4V converter( It is aimed at removing DRM from iTunes videos and convert to MP4 format at the faster speed with losslessly quality.
