Hot to Get and Watch Video on the Apple iPad

One of the cool things that the iPad can do is let you watch video wherever you go. The iPad can play all sorts of video content from you home movies to TV shows and films purchased on iTunes. You can also rent movies to watch on the device and stream movies when you are connected to a WiFi connection.

To stream movies you need a subscription to a service like Netflix. Getting your videos onto the iPad is done just as you would get music or photos onto the device. By default, the iPad won’t synchronize video, so you have to go in and tell iTunes to synchronize video and where you want to synchronize it from. If you have lots of video on your computer and only want certain videos the easiest way to ensure you don’t get a bunch of content on your iPad that you don’t want is to create a folder specifically for iPad videos and copy all the content you want on the iPad into that folder.

Once you choose the folder you want to synchronize video from, you simply hit the apply button in the lower right corner of the iTunes window and then synchronize your iPad. Videos that you buy or rent on iTunes are placed into the video section on the device. You touch the video icon on the home screen and the video section will open. If you have multiple episodes of TV shows on the device, each program will have an icon and clicking that icon will take you to the individual episodes.

The meta data describing the episode is there for you to read and you can touch the videos you want to watch. Once the video is playing you can touch the video on the screen to bring up the menu for pausing, fast forward, or rewind. You can also choose to zoom the video to fill up the entire screen or to zoom out making black bars at the top and bottom of the video.

Zooming video on the iPad takes away the wide aspect ratio with the black bars and enlarges it to fill the whole screen. The image quality is hurt slightly and you do lose some of the video content as you do going from letterbox to full screen movies.

Video playback quality on HD programs is very good. The glossy screen of the iPad means that glare in anything but a dark room is a big issue. The iPad has plenty of volume for watching without needing headphones and the viewing angles are good enough that several people can watch video at the same time. The videos can be watched in portrait or landscape mode depending on what you want.

Once you watch a video and want to delete it from the iPad you can do so by either deleting it in iTunes and synchronizing the iPad again or you can delete the episodes from the main episodes screen by touching them for a few seconds and then touching the "X" that pops up on the video icon.
