Hi everyone,

So accidentally updated the iPad to 12.3 and as many know, you need an internet connection to show exactly what's in your TV app on your iPad or iPhone. :mad:

I do not stream. :mad:

I watch burned and converted movies on my iPad.

Am I missing something? Is there anyway around constantly needing an internet connection to access and watch my movies?

And is there is a different app I can use on the iPad and iPhone that will allow iTunes and ripped movies to play without an internet connection?

I haven't updated to 12.3 on my iPhone 8+ yet, and now I don't want to.

Thanks.

My iPad is at 12.3. When I turn off wifi and then go into the TV app, it automatically opens to the Downloaded window which shows me that I have Logan downloaded. I'm surprised that yours doesn't go to the Downloaded window. Maybe restarted the iPad would help.

Thank you for tip, it did not help.

I have to play around with VLC. Just as well.

So all of this talk of VLC through the years, and I never bothered to look into it until now. Thankfully, it works like iTunes used to. So no more annoying TVapp on my iDevices.
