    Hello, I'm new to this site.
    Is there an app or a programme I can get that allows me to watch films that are on an external hard drive. I have a cable that connects via usb into my iPad mini.

    I have a setup with my WD Live MyCloud External Hard Drive which allows me to view content but this is a NAS (Network Attached Storage).
    If you have just a straight up external Hard Drive you may be out of luck unless you get a PC involved in the mix somehow.

    You could use a tripmate nano. Excellent wifi facility to which I can connect usb drve, mem stick, mem card from my Tomtom, mem card from my old Nikon camera, hard drive -even my old Sony ereader. (Not all at the same time, though.)

    To watch videos I have nplayer by recommendation here.
