How to transfer videos from PC to iPad using iTunes

ITunes is an application that allows you manage your media library. If you sync movies or TV shows stored in your iTunes library, they'll appear in the native Videos app on your iPad. This is a perfectly good way of doing things, but if your video isn't in a format that iTunes can play, you can't add it to the library, nor sync it with your iPad. Also, you can only use one computer to sync your iPad. If you try to sync videos from another computer running iTunes, you'll get a warning that all your media will be deleted first. If you don't want the videos get lost:
1. Don't switch computers.
2. Don't sync your iPad with other people's computers.
3. Don't snap songs directly on the Internet via your iPad, etc.

The good news is that there are lots of apps available in the App Store on your iPad which can play videos and allow you to 'import' files from any computer running iTunes.

Step 1Connect your device to your computer.

Connect your iPad to computer with cable that belongs to your iPhone. Generally, iTunes will spontaneously open itself. If it fails to do so go to Applications >iTunes and open it.

Step 2Choose videos on iTunes to be transferred from PC to iPad.
