    Hello all. I am new to apple. I've had my iPad for 2 weeks now and I'm really enjoying it. My problem is I set up home sharing with my laptop and when I sync'd my iPad with the laptop I lost 3 videos. They show in my iTunes library on my laptop but I can't seem to get those 3 back on the iPad... I've tried just about everything I can think of but being new to all this I am sure I am missing something.?? Thoughts? Thank you!

    You will probably find that the videos aren't in a format recognised by the iPad. I use Handbrake to convert vids to the correct format and to rip DVDs.

    With a VPN-style connection you can stream TO your iPad, but I don't know of any means of streaming FROM your iPad. I don't think the iPad and iOS are designed to work as servers.
