.MOV videos not syncing to iPad

I’m trying to load up my iPad with photos and videos from my Photos library for an upcoming trip to the in-laws. The photos sync over no issue, but it refuses to sync over .mov files, saying that they aren’t compatible with my iPad (even though the apple tech specs page claims otherwise.)
Any ideas to either get the syncing to work/cool workflows to convert all those videos into a more compatable format? My mac is on 11.6 and my iDevices are on 15.0.2.
