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.

Seconding Meteoric.
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.

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!
