    From the iTunes menu try "File > Add to Library" and then choose the file to add to your library. Make sure it is encoded properly.

    Once you have it in your iTunes library you can download the DVD cover art and add it to your movie by right clicking the movie and selecting "Get Info". Drag the cover art into the "artwork" tab.

    A couple of studios are now experimenting with selling movies as Apps. For example you can buy the Batman "Dark Knight" app which will play the movie on your iDevice.

    'The Dark Knight: App Edition' is available in the UK, just add a k before the n. Though why anyone would buy a movie as an app is beyond me. 5.99£ for a movie which can only be played on iPads: That is even worse than the iTunes DRM.

    For watching movies, you could also use the CineXPlayer app, it can play a whole range of formats. To add a video, simply connect the iPad to the PC, in iTunes go to the app section of the iPad. At the bottom is a field which lets you add content to specific apps.

    Please forgive the grammar, I am already asleep.

    isn't this promoting pirating? (read: against forum rules)

    I downloaded some tv episodes and movies to my ipad2 in preparation for flight today. When I tried to watch them it said the URL could not be found on my server. What did I do wrong. Isn't this one of the benefits of the iPad? I am on boings at airport and still I get that error message. Any answers from you pros? This is first time I have tried it.

    What app did you use to download them, they should be in the app.
