Copying movies to Ipad2
I couldnt find any topic on this so here`s my post
I have a jailbroken ipad 2 and want to copy some downloaded movies to the ipad. But i just cant figure out how to do it cause itunes blocks the movies.
btw the movies are in the right format for the ipad.
I hope anyone can help me
Avplayerhd works a treat it's an app in app store you still fire up iTunes but then go to apps and then add away hope this helps
Avplayerhd will play almost anything and works well. Also, if you want to use the built in player you can convert the vids pretty easily. Look for handbrake online somewhere. There is a default setting for iPad and that converts to a viewable format. It converts pretty quickly as well
I bought AZUL and can load .avi movies on without conversion and it works great.
If you have downloaded movies you want on your iPad and it won't let you, make sure they (the movies are in the mpeg4 format; this is the only format iTunes can read. If they're not mp4s, download the free app "handbrake." (I have it on both my Mac and a win-tel machine. It's pretty self-explanatory to use: set the output format to "iPad" (note: the movie may not play on your computer, but it will on your iPad. Once you have the mp4 file, create a folder for it in: iTunes - music - movies. Label the folder with the movie name. Then mozy over to google and google the name of the movie and amazon. Pull it up in amazon, copy the image of the movie box (you can use other sites for this; I just prefer amazon...) and paste the image in the artwork box of the file in iTunes ("get info" - artwork tab).
Then sync it.
I've done this with about 20 movies I've downloaded, it works every time.
(Oh, you may be disapointed with the movie quality if you didn't download a " hi-res" version; they will be about 1.3 ~ 1.7 gigs.
If yu have any problems, let me know.
Thanks i wil try them out and let you know if i have any problems!
I use Ace Player it will play any format I have tried to throw at it
Try to install iTunes on your PC or laptop, its helpful to convert your files from PC to your iPad. I also just know about this thing, so I am ready to install iTunes on my laptop.

Would you please explain in baby steps how you went about doing this?
I already have about 12 .AVI format movies on my Window 7 PC and I would like to move them over to my iPad 2, Vers 5.1.1 (3g + Wi-Fi) 64Gig.
I ask for baby steps as I have only had my iPad for 2 days so I am still groping around so to speak.
