    I have too many films on my iPad, and it's a little overwhelming (HELP):)

    You might be trying to put too much stuff on your iPad?

    It's a device with limited capacity try dragging the movies you want from Itunes to your iPad.

    If your on wifi, you might want to try streaming your movies direct from iTunes. If your movies were added from a digital copy it'll show up in your Purchases section, and there is no need to download them to your iPad, unless your going to be away from wifi.

    I just tested this and you have to download it before you can play it. There's only a cloud icon which downloads the movie, not a play icon.

    Is your intention to watch at home or on the road? If at home, have you tried Air Video?

    My mistake in what I said. If you enable home sharing, and you're on the same network as your computer, you'll be able to stream without downloading it to your iPad.

    Once you've watched the movie are you leaving it on your iPad and why? All I do is download the film to the iPad and after watching it delete it from the iPad. If it is a movie I purchased I can re-download it later or do a transfer from iTunes via my Mac and the external drive I store iTunes material on. I see no reason to keep a movie on my iPad after watching it, unless I plan on watching it again in the very near future.

    When I go out of town, I will download a few movies to my iPad, watch them on the plane or whatever and then afterwards replace them with something different or just delete them. When I have a good wi-fi connection i just stram the film from Netflix.

    Yes, but that's only while at home. If you're on out and about, you need to store it locally or on a Wi-Fi enabled HDD.

    Then the solution is rather simple, remove some stuff from your iPad. Surely you don't need to keep all of your movies on it.
