    I was talking to the lady that I babysit for, and she was wondering if there was an app that allows you to put a passcode on certain videos because her kids like to play on her iPad a lot, and she has a bunch of True Blood on there that she doesn't want them to accidentally start watching. Anybody know of one?

    Can't really be done. No app can alter the settings of other apps. She needs to just keep an eye on them... that thing we used to call "parenting" that no one seems to want to do much of anymore.

    The one I use is called Stash Pro, cost like $3 or $4

    You can lock up videos, pictures, anything you want/need to keep private.

    If you are jailbroken I believe something like Locktopus will do it but it is an all or nothing approach - they either have open access to photos/videos or no access at all without a PIN or passcode.

    You could sync the videos with Goodreader (via file sharing) and put them in a password protected directory. Of course you have to play them within GR instead of the regular video app then.

    This may help:
    Settings->General->Restrictions->Movies
    and then you can set content restrictions.

    I use Video Safe which is an iphone app - however you need to put videos in the app itself - it doesn't control the regular videos folder. The importing and exporting is done through a web or FTP interface from the PC

    If you go to settings in your ipad, under general you can set restrictions. Within restrictions there's what's called rated content, you can set the ratings for movies. You can set it to only allow movies to play with a desired rating.

    AVplayerHD can do this. Sync the videos into AVplayer then create a folder. Move the movies into the folder then you can set a 4 digit pass-code to access that folder of movies. Enjoy your pr0n. ;)
