Hey all,

I’m going on “vacation” for a month in a couple weeks and I want to fill up my new iPad with videos to watch on the flight / beach etc.

I only have 32gb of storage, and I have bazillions of videos, movies, tuts etc I would like to take with me.

What is the best method for taking my content?

Is there an app that can resize my video so it’s smaller and optimised for the ipad?

Or should I upload the videos to something like box.net so I can stream them?

Thanks in advanced! :)

If you’ve got a lot of free space then just store them normally on there. Otherwise, I’d use an online streaming service (even something like YouTube in private mode) and just watch those.

You could get an external storage device to stream from. http://www.unlocktips.com/2012/11/best-ipad-mini-external-hard-drive-memory-storage-options/ https://discussions.apple.com/thread/4973435

Damn! I just got a Seagate External HD… should’ve got the wireless version >.<
