app wise or whatever I need to play movies from itune store on my ipad air?
Just download them to your iPad and play them in the Videos app. Also, if you go to Settings>iTunes & App Store>Show All and slide the Videos switch to on, all your purchased iTunes movies will show on your iPad and you can stream the ones not on your iPad from the cloud. An excellent Internet connection is required for smooth streaming, though.
so I dl the movie, then open video app on ipad, and play it? cool, if this is right. I usually mess up the intent of replies. 72 is old for following instructions. lol
oh and is iTunes the only place I can get movies that will play on my ipad or could amazon ones work?
Movies purchased from Amazon wouldn't play on the iPad. You can download movies purchased eksewhere to iTunes on your computer and convert them to a format that will play on the iPad. http://support.apple.com/en-us/HT201520
These movies an be from your DVD and earlier video collections. DVDs can be ripped and loaded onto your computer using any of a number of available programs. Several of our members have experience at this and would be able to better help you in this.
ok. thx for info. I will stick to iTunes for movie then for now. may ask about the ripping stuff later. One more thing since you are batting a thousand so far. you said buy one and t hen open video player. if I want to put 3 or 4 on my ipad air at once, I am going overseas and need a couple each way, how do I do that? If this is too many questions just tell me.
As long as there is enough available storage capacity you can just download all three or four. When you open the videos app, they'll all be listed in the movies section. Here's a screenshot of part of the movies section on my iPad.
well just looked and I have 6.9 GB left after operating sys and apple stuff plus books et c. how many movies could I get in 6.9 GB? approx.?
If you look at the available movies in itunes it says how much storage each movie requires. 6.9GB won't allow for more than two or three movies, depending on size.
ok thx for all your help. I will leave you alone now and go buy some movies.
You're welcome. Don't forget to come back if you have any more questions.
