    Hello,

    I'm desperate for your help. You see, I've been trying for a long time to watch movies or series online on my iPad 2, but I've never managed to. If someone have succesfully done it, please leave a "recipe" and the websites you used to watch it on.
    Thank you :)

    If you're trying to watch Flash encoded files, it won't happen, unless you use a browser or app, say, like the Skyfire offerings' which decode it at a server and send it to you streaming. If you're trying to get past popups, say at watcheu, then it ain't gonna happen.

    Have you tried the Netflix app? It's a subscription service that allows you to watch streaming video movies,etc..

    HBO Go (if you have HBO) is great as well.

    On Internet Archive: Digital Library of Free Books, Movies, Music & Wayback Machine you can find a large collection of free movies that are encoded in an iPad compatible MP4 format, and will actually stream.

    From a sister-forum of these forums, this post might give you some ideas:

    Free Movies, Videos, TV Shows, NFL Highlights - Legal Websites

    It contains a collection of different websites with videos on them, and while these are tested for Android devices, many of them work for iPad as well (forget the app-links though)

    Check the app store to see if your local tv stations have apps available. Some of them can even use AirPlay to stream the show through your AppleTV so you can watch it on a bigger screen.

    I love HBO to GO. Works great for me. Some shows are perfect for small screen.
    I'll catch up on shows usually laying in bed.

    +1. I'm on travel now and using my netflix to stream Star Trek the Next Generation. Fills in gaps nicely. Netflix has a huge library of titles. I only really watch it when on travel.

    Most of the ones I suggested in my reply are free.

    HBO isn't, unless you have HBO on your TV subscription, but Archive.org is completely free, and the links in the post on the sister forum are free as well.

    You should find a website or a app that can support your iPad to watch videos,I use iPad watch movies have to use iTunes, I put files to iTunes, and then make iPad and iTunes synchronous,and then I can watch my videos!

    Does the app OPlayer solve the problem of streaming and watching TV episodes on the internet? I know it says you can watch flash.

    Netflix is fine if you are in America. Does not work in Australia or in other countries, thus my question, does the app OPlayer do the job?

    I'm home now but have been in Europe around Thanksgiving and in Rio de Janeiro most of December.
    I have been streaming mostly Neflix(pay) and Slingplayer while away with no problems.
    Also have Huluplus(pay),Vudu(pay),AmazonPrime,CrunchyRoll,PBS,CBS,TBS,TNT,etc.
    And I have downloaded a few HD movies and and video podcast to watch while in flight.

    I must have watched about 7 episodes of Dr.Who on Netflix at the airport in Rio last week.
    Anywhere in the world there's wifi I can stream.
