The way that you approached this bears most of the marks of a troll but I'm trying to give you the benefit of the doubt.

The op is yet another example of someone going out and buying something they know nothing about. Then they get upset when it does not meet there expected needs. 20 minutes of research on google and he would have found all of this out.
These are all dead horses and have been beaten to dead long ago.
You have two options, return it or suck it up and deal with it. Now pick one.

The problem with America is stupidity. I'm not saying there should be a capital punishment for stupidity, but why don't we just take the safety labels off of everything and let the problem solve itself?
Ok I'll bite. You don't have to convert your video files to play them. There are several apps that can play all file types. OPlayer HD is a nice litte app for this. If you don't want to conect to itunes all the time you can use Dropbox to transfer files. I'm new to Ipad too. I think it's a great little machine and am having a lot of fun with it. It could never replace my laptop, but that was never it's purpose. There are lots of tips and tricks on this forumn and people willing to give advice. You just need to go about it a little differently.

Thanks Dlh1970. I'll check out OPlayer and Dropbox. And if you ever want an alternative to iBooks try Bookman, its free. It doesn't support as many formats, but it has a nice bookshelf preview of .pdf files that works better than iBooks.

We've trusted iTunes to continue to offer the same functionality. But now the iTunes (or iPod app) on the iPad has removed the ability to access a remote library.
Anyway I will pursue this iTunes issue in a different sub-forum.

Back to #3 on the OP, I use StreamToMe to stream all my music and videos from my media server to my iPad and it works great. It does require a background application to be running on the server so if your NAS doesn't support that then check out FileBrowser. It also supports streaming and has built in AirPlay support.

I'm coping. Appreciate the specific suggestions.
What about Orb? A program you put your desktop and a website you bookmark on your device and it allows the device to stream media (not just music) to your device from your desktop. I've not tried it on my Ipad but I used to use it on my Dare phone and Omnia phone.
