They have been added to iTunes. I'm confident of that because there'd be no other way to get them onto the iPad (that I know of, anyway).

I'd expect the existing format to be compatible enough, since it shows up on the iPad and plays.

My video podcasts show up under Videos on the iPad.
GENERAL GRIPE: This is one of the things that bothers me about iTunes. Another is that I don't see any way to *remove* a folder from the library. I've moved files and they show up multiple times in iTunes. Then, when they're transferred to the iPad, I receive messages that about one hundred of them can't be found. I've resolved the situation enough to be confident, now, that those files are all duplicates, but it caused me some real headaches, for a while and probably will, again, in the future.
As before I appreciate any and all advice.
