    I'm a bit of an iPad beginner, so if the answer to this obvious... just let me know.

    I have a TON of video content that I'd like to transfer to my iPad. The issue is that I have too much video and don't watch it all often enough to justify storing on my laptop's internal hard drive... so it's all on an external. If I were to use the iPad's built-in video app and use iTunes to sync, that content would also need to live in my iTunes library and clog up all that space.

    Are there any good iPad apps that allow you to transfer the video content directly from an external hard drive to an iPad without adding the content to the iTunes library?

    Thanks!!

    Check out the VLC app. Allows you to drag any video from anywhere on your pc into the app.

    I've heard that the VLC app is pretty buggy. Has it been fixed since its initial release?
