    I am running ios 8 on an ipad air 2.

    I added a folder containing 7 mp4 files to my itunes library.

    Then I synced those 7 files to my ipad and confirmed the videos were on my ipad.

    But then I decided I'd prefer to have them on a playlist so they are more organized, so I opened the Videos app on my ipad, tapped Edit, and manually deleted each one.

    Now, when I go to the Movies folder of my device in itunes, the 7 videos are still listed there even though they aren't on my ipad. Why would this happen?

    I've also tried syncing the playlist I created to my ipad, but nothing happens when I do. The playlist does not appear on my ipad when it's done. I don't know if it's because itunes thinks the videos are already on my ipad or what.

    Please help!

    Please correct my if I misunderstand you, but you sync via iTunes on your computer, right? Could you disable video syncing there, then apply, then re-enable video sync? Hope that gets them back on the iPad!
