    Hi Guys,

    I've jailbroken my ipad 2 5.0.1 because i was finding it difficult to transfer data/Videos with the limitations of iTunes.

    Now that i have access to the raw file directory structure i can drag and drop.

    My question is what is the location path for storing videos under the 'Videos' app in ipad 2?

    Can i just drag and drop so i can have my videos displayed in the stock Videos App or must they be synced via itunes to display there?

    Many thanks.

    In order for video to show up in the stock video app, they have to be written into the video database. Just copying them into the correct directory doesn't work.

    You could always use another player like GoodPlayer. If you select a video file anywhere in iFile goodplayer will come up as an option.
