    Do I have to email them like I do with pictures?

    You can connect your iPad to your PC via the sync cable and use itunes...that is probably the fastest way if the files are any size (you can do this wirelessly too)...You can only email them if they are small enough to go through your email.

    Similar to AQ_OC, what I do is plug my iPad into my PC. Assuming for a second you use Windows (though I don't see why something similar shouldn't happen on the Mac), your iPad will show up as a portable device (like an external hard drive) so you can navigate to the iPad using Windows Explorer, again, like any other drive on your PC. Your videos should show up in one of the folders in the DCIM folder. you can then use Windows Explorer to copy it over to a local drive on your PC.

    You can also use the SD Card adapter in the MC531ZM/A Camera Connection Kit. Been working good for me. To transfer photos and videos..$29.95

    Keep in mind that HD movies are large (see quote below from an Apple support article) - Dropbox if an option provides only 2 GB of 'free' space; of course more storage can be purchased. :)
