    OK, So my gf got an ipad air for Christmas.

    I've been sticking little videos in a drop box folder for her, along with some TV series episodes. She's been happily downloading these and playing via VLC.

    However I put a few things up there today, and she says that when she clicks download, the little status bar isn't moving - nothing is happening.

    I firstly had her check her internal storage, which is fine as she's been deleting stuff as she goes. I thought I'd copied up every type of file for her (why I suggested VLC as the better player) but these are mp4 files. Is there an obvious reason they're not downloading?

    I really am pretty sure I've done mp4s for her before.

    I've told her to download itunes and try downloading the files through that.

    Any ideas or suggestions guys?

    VLC was updated today with direct DropBox integration. Works very well (though you cannot cancel a download once you start it as they do not show up under downloads; unless I am missing something).
