    Downloadimg a video

    Good morning everyone. I just received a new link to download a video from another gruop I'm in. And when I click the video link from that web site my ipad won't download it. Is there a way to download it without having to go to my pc first, just using my iPad.
    Thanks!
    Ralph

    You can't do this using Safari, but if you have GoodReader, then that will do it just fine...



    There is a program that most all iPad users have called GoodReader. It's the 'Swiss Army Knife' for the iPad and it can store files all together and in folders - or however you want them - and can transfer files to and from your PC using either WiFi or USB without the need for iTunes. It's built in web-browser can download files too, something that Safari doesn't offer - except for PDF format. From within GoodReader you can open those files in any app that supports that type of file. Having said that, though, when a compatible app does open that file it makes a local copy that it works on, so the original copy in GoodReader is left untouched. If you want to store the modified file in GoodReader you have to transfer it back there by some means.

    GoodReader can also attach several files to an email and then send them using the iPad's native Mail app - something you can't do from within Mail itself. It also gives you the opportunity to annotate PDF files and save the resulting file so that it can be read on a PC or Mac. That annotation can be handwritten or typed and you can search the document for your typed annotations and bookmarks. On the latest version, PDF files can be scrolled horizontally or vertically.

    It can also play several formats of video and audio files too.

    .swf files cannot be played natively on the iPad; you'll need to convert it first. There are several converters, but this to be done on a PC.....

    Convert Swf to Ipad Mac - Convert Swf to Ipad App
