    Does the vlc app move files in the normal itunes method to the device?

    Open itunes, connect device and select device. Go to the App tab and scroll down. At the bottom there will be a filelist for each app. You can delete it there.

    Select the file you want to delete on the file share list, and press fn+backspace if you are on a mac (I presume it would be the del key in windows). The file will be deleted when you sync again.

    thanks MrMorden, that works!, how did you find out that?

    apple products are awesome but the manual sucks!

    Just pressing the delete key should be enough. I don't have VLC but that's how it works on all my apps.

    Just use the "delete" key, while the video you want to stop sharing is highlighted

    I'm awesome :cool:

    Just kidding... I also had a hard time figuring out how to do it, so I thought about the "delete" key thing... But since mac laptops don't have a delete key, then fn+backspace (which = delete) did the trick.

    Glad I could help.

    No other way?

    Does anyone know of a simpler way of deleting a video file directly from the VLC app on the iPad itself without having to hook it up to iTunes?
