    The CCK is not designed for this. You will have to add the videos by sideloading into your video app using iTunes on your PC.

    Google Plus for iOS Gets Big Update Including Hangouts

    It's a pity this is only an iPhone app with a x2 button. There is no way I have found to actually start a hangout with this app and an iPad but you can join one already running.

    Buying Accessories on Amazon and Ebay.

    Mainly use eBay. Amazon have a wierd poilcy for a lot of their stuff in Europe, won't ship to your location is the usual issue. I have made many eBay purchases from suppliers all over the world without issue, occasionally items have not arrived as quickly as I would like but IF I want something...

    Anybody jailbroke their iPad 2 with Absinthe?

    The same easy to do worked flawlessly. But back to standard now as I found Skype wouldn't work once Jailbroken and I use it quite a lot so for me it was a deal breaker.

    IPAD over Cat5

    No reason why it shouldn't. I don't have the hdmi ipad connector but I do stream hdmi from my satellite receiver to another room over cat 5 without any issue.

    IPAD over Cat5

    You could use the Apple HDMI tv connector and then an hdmi to cat5 convertor. I am not aware of one piece of kit that does both.

    Ipad2 camara conx. kit advice please.

    I bought one of the cheap eBay clone CCK's for 4€ and it works fine with all the cameras I have tried it with so far, Canon DSLR and P&S, Nikon P&S, Lumix P&S and Fuji. My CCK actually works with a usb card reader and so it reads xD and CF cards as well as the standard SD cards.

    Magic with the iPad!

    I hope I don't get an infraction for this. A very good magician using an iPad for his tricks. It is in German and if you push the CC under the video (on Youtube rather than on here) you get English sub titles. Hope you enjoy it.

    DVD to ipad2 using pc?

    If you are using a PC try Format Factory (its free) to do the conversion. It is what I use and it plays perfectly in Ace Player.

    ipad 2 to tv ??

    You need a player that supports the video out option like Ace Player and you need to enable it (several of the video player apps don't support video out). You don't need the hdmi kit unless you want to mirror your iPad screen to the TV.

    OnLive Desktop Brings Windows 7 and Microsoft Office to the iPad

    What's really annoying is that I registered and told them I was in Spain. A few days later I get an email telling me I can download and use the app as I have been granted a free account, Great. No definitely not seems their allocation software ignores country of registration and so the app is...

    USB Flash drive for watching movies?

    Not Jailbroken then there is no way to access movies on your usb stick on your iPad. You can convert them to AVI's with something like the free Format Factory for PC and they take up a lot less room on the iPad.

    I'm doing something wrong re watching a film, but what?

    Steve Tha camera connection kit won't do what you want. It will only import photos from a dcim folder on the card not anything else. The easy way to get a film onto your iPad is with iTunes. Go to your iPad then Apps then scroll down and you will see your apps that can have files drag and...

    pdf to epub

    If you read the Calibre docs pdf to ePub conversion is poor to useless. The recommended way is to convert the pdf to web page filtered in M$ Word and then convert that html filtered file to ePub. That has always worked well for me but admittedly without mathematical formulas.

    Family History

    I have recently got an iPad and am now looking for a suitable app. I found this thread and one other where genealogy and Family History are discussed. I have seen mention of Gedview, Families and Roots Magic. I have been able to find the first two on the app store but not the last one, is it...

    I suspect that you can't and you will have to upload them to your pc / mac and then sideload them into your video player in iTunes.

    Ipad2 docking station

    I don't know about the best but I bought one of the cheap eBay ones for £5 and it works fine. Charges and sync's my iPhone too. Only problem is that it is white and I would have preferred black and the blue power LED is a bit bright but what do you expect for the money. It holds the iPad at the...

    iPad Mini rumors are haunting everybody’s dreams

    I would certainly like to see it. I find the iPad2 just a bit too big for regular reading my 7" Android tablet is better as a reader as it is that bit smaller.

    Film on to ipad 2 how

    Convert your movies on your PC using the free programme called Format Factory to avi format. And then side load to the iPad using VLC as the player. That's what i do and it is easy and works and the films don't take up too much space on the iPad.
