    Just got my new iPad (fantastic!) after getting/falling in love with the iPhone 4 a couple of months ago..... One of the things I will be doing on my iPad quite a bit is streaming NetFlix movies... My new iPad has WiFi only... not 3G. My question is...... can entire movies (from any source) be "downloaded" onto the iPad so I could watch them when no WiFi connection is available...... say on an airplane (assuming I'm too cheap to PAY for the WiFi offered on the flight....) ... Thks....... ;)

    Short answer, yes. There is also iTunes and others you can use. You can also download purchased DVDs with a little help.

    Depends what you mean by Downloaded, you can obvioulsy download movies from itunes, otherwise check out Handbrake to rip films from DVD's on your computer

    Are you jailbroken?

    If so... NICE!

    Look in Cydia for the tweak Safari Download Manager.

    Use the website i4iphones, and download a movie... (Over WiFi to the iPad)

    Use iFile, and find the movie you download from the site. All there movies are converted for Apple products so it'll easily play.

    [If this is against the rules, I'm sorry and delete it.]

    If not jailbroken...

    Just download movies to your computer.

    I personally you Air Video, it can let you stream and also converts your movies.

    Once converted throw them on the iPad and enjoy!

    Yup, you can. In addition, if you have some movies on DVD discs, you even can rip them to ur iPad for watching with some iPad DVD Ripper ...

    If you want to save conversion, look at the OPlayer app. I use the lite version which is ad supported but if you are offline, it is just a greyed out box instead and if it is a widescreen movie, this grey box will appear in the black border and not block the movie itself.
    I use this app to download movies from my NAS over Wifi before heading off on a trip.
