    I can't find the controlls for my video on ipad. Nothing happens if I tap it once and tapping it twice only vooms in or out. I can't play, pause, fastford, or even exit my movie. Whenever I try to press video, the movie comes up and it's paused because I closed it before it finished. How do I controll the movie?
    Never mind guys, thanks. I guess that it was just frozen or something it's working fine now. I bought the video, "Battle Royale" on iTunes and was just using the original video app that it came with. Now when i just touch it once, it's fine and the controls come up.

    Hi and welcome to the Forum!

    You should be able to just tap on the screen once and your controls appear. If this isn't happening for you close the app completely and then relaunch it. From the home screen do the four finger swipe up or double press the home button to reveal your multi task bar. These are all the apps that you have opened at one time. Long press the app until it jiggles and a red minus sign will appear above it. Press the minus sign, this will close the app, not delete it, now press the home button to return to your screen. It's also a good idea to close all these apps, as it helps the iPad run smoothly, let us know how you go.
