    I am traveling overseas and brought 6 movies with me. Turns out that is going to be woefully short of what I actually need. I have a large collection of movies on my home computer, and I can remotely connect to it from here to convert movies and put them either on an FTP site that I own or HTTP. My question is, is it possible to import a couple of those movies from external sites into the iPad for offline watching (when I am on a plane?) Thanks!

    Yes it's possible, using download apps.
    I use Perfect Downloader but the current version is buggy like f&@#. There are others on the AppStore.

    Cool and you're sure they do exactly what I'm looking for?

    Meteoric dealt very poorly with network interruptions. It did try to resume, but was never able to successfully resume after a second disconnection. Do the others do that better? Resuming is very important given my Internet source which is apparently not reliable.

    I haven't tried Meteoric, but I use GoodReader's web, download and unrar-ing features, to great effect.

    I believe iCab browser's download option also does the trick.

    Yep, it's very strong for handling the main functionality (download files). But the UI has some annoying bugs that makes it crash.
    I can live with that though.

    Goodplayer does that job for me. I can stream or download to the device. Has great codec support to meaning it can play avi's, etc.

    The TV out function is awesome too!
