    Help, please:

    I'm on the road with my MacBook Pro and iPhone 4, about to fly home in 4 hours. I want to watch some DVD's I own on the plane on my iPhone, not the MBP.

    I used Toast 10 to make .m4v's -- but I cannot figure out how to transfer them to the iPhone 4.

    I sync my iPhone to my home/desktop computer. So, from what I understand, I cannot use iTunes to move the movies to the phone -- because you can only sync an iPhone to one computer and I don't have access to that computer.

    Am I right about this?

    Is there anything I can do to move them over without using iTunes?

    Thanks for the help.

    You can use a service like dropbox to transfer then download it to your device. But, there is a file size limit on most of those. Maybe you could try AirSharing? It will take a really long time to transfer the files, but you won't have to use iTunes.
