How do I watch my videos on my iPad. Before is there used to be a videos app. I'm getting ready for a trip and I can't load some tv shows because there is no video app and the tv app only plays apple stuff. What am I missing?

Thanks,
me

I regularly play videos that I have transcoded from DVD with handbrake using the TV app. Are you referring to some other type of videos?

If these are TV shows/movies you copied over using iTunes, you have to use the TV app. Once in the TV app you have to click on Library at the bottom of the screen, and then Downloaded near the top. The TV shows/movies you copied to your iPad using iTunes should be in there.

Eh, don’t feel that way! Sometimes really simple stuff is some what confusing on the iPad. For some things, if you don’t have the right app, it’s impossible to open/use, and you don’t even know what app you exactly need to open it sometimes.
