How to Play and Edit Phantom 4 on iPad Pro/Air/mini/4/3/2

Hey guys, I'm trying to use my iPad to edit my video from the Phantom 4, but I'm having trouble with video format. I have tried several combinations, and am using the iPad SD card adapter to import directly to the iPad. The videos import to the iPad perfectly, but just will not play. I get an error saying the format is not supported.

I'm very familiar with editing in iMovie on my iPad. Ive always used my GoPro H3B to get my footage, and it has always uploaded all clips to the ipad with no issues. The issue I'm having here, is most of the recording settings I'm using do not play on the iPad, so they can also not be edited. I should be able to plug the SD card into the iPad, upload the clips, and immediately watch them, but I can't.. The only clip Ive been able to upload and watch/edit was a 1080p /120 FPS /.MOV file.

I believe a lot of Phantom 4 users have met the same problem above. Before giving the solution, let’s find out the reason to the problem. Although iPad supports a wide range of file formats, 4K resolution footage from DJI Phantom 4 can’t be supported well. 

The reason why the Phantom 4 4K footage files are looking like being corrupted in preview window is that common ipad doesn’t have the ability to process the Phantom 4 4K video editing work, even you can’t import Phantom 4 4K footage into iPad under iPad Pro generation. The quality of Phantom 4 4K videos is ultra high definition, so it requires very powerful hardware.

The method to edit DJI Phantom 4 4K videos in iPad smoothly is installing an video converter to compress 4K files to 2K files. Pavtube HD Video Converter for Mac(read the review) is high recommended for you which is able to convert both the *.mov and *.mp4 files form DJI Phantom 4 4K videos into compatible 2K *.mov for iPad series including iPad Pro/Air/mini/4/3/2. The conversion is darn easy to be finished with only three clicks without loss of video quality.

Also with it you can adjust video and audio parameters, including the Bitrate of Video and Audio, the Codec of Video and Audio, Video Size, Sample Rate, Frame Rate, Audio Channels... make it more suitable for editing on iPad.

Besides iPad, this program can help you convert then import DJI Phantom 4 4K videos to NLEs on your Mac or PC, such as FCP, iMovie, Avid MC, Adobe Premiere, Windows Movie Maker and more NLEs.
