I use CineXPLAYER, just download movies to computer like normal and the load onto ipad. App has how-to on how to load them. Just sync ipad with computer, click on apps scroll down select CineXPLAYER then click add and locate movies to add. This app plays almost every format. I had VLC player which i have on my netbook but its restricted on what formats it will play. Pay the couple bucks for CineXPLAYER, well worth it.
