    I downloaded pictures and videos from my camera to my ipad. It won't play the videos. Do I need a special app for that. It keeps giving me a notice that says "adobe is not available". Any advice on what I can do to see the videos.

    Your so dam kind... More appropriately you should say 'hello and welcome to our forum and maybe I can help with your issue'. Or better so, don't say anything at all.

    But I guess your off the hook because your not perfect which you admit

    Hi Kirk,

    What kind of video is it? If you get some kind of "Adobe" message, maybe it is a flash video?

    Welcome!

    hello

    Sorry I guess I should have said hello. I thought it was better just to ask the question. It was downloaded along with the pictures on my canon camera. It was a 10 sec video. It says it cant play it because adobe doesnt support ipod or ipad. I didn't know if there was a program that let you play all videos. I can play itunes videos but just nothing from my camera. Thanking you in advance

    Hi Pamg, can you give us more details like the video format you still use, usually you have to convert your video with Handbrake and add it to your iTunes library … do you see your video in your itunes when you sync your iPad ? (see the picture) since you see it there you can view it using the Video software include in your iPad , not using the iPod one

    Hi pamg I was just looking at the specs for your sx200 and the ipad. They seem compatible. What resolution are you shooting at? I would try to shoot something at 640x480 and see if that helps when you download directly to yur iPad.

    ipadone had a good suggestion to try to import the MOV into itunes first then sync your iPad to to itunes. This seems like a few extra steps but it may be then only way.

    Let us know about your progress. Learning is half the fun!:D
