    I have many folders of videos.

    The sequence of the videos within each folder is important: they are training videos. Each folder is a different course.

    1. What's the best method to get them from my pc/mac to my ipad so the order is preserved?
    2. What's the bet play-back method? I tried one of the picture/video xfer apps and it did create an album within pictures. However, the ipad doesn't show file names of the video clips in the album so I can't tell which is which.

    I did try using OneDrive offline files but it tosses all the files into one "offline folder" - not ideal.

    Many thanks for any suggestions,

    First off, if the order is essential, number the videos in the file name if possible.
    (Ex: "1 - Introduction")

    Second, try using Documents 5. I've used it, it works very well and it will show file names and folders. You can use the built in Wi-Fi server to transfer files, use FTP or WebDav or whatever. Pretty good app.

    Simply a brilliant suggestion, THANK YOU!

    That's exactly what I want!

    I'll move the videos to my empty drop box and add that as a source in "Documents 6".

    I'd be concerned giving it access to my OneDrive since that's where I have all kinds of sensitive financial data.

    Thanks again,

    OMG: Documents 6 is simply AWESOME!!

    Aside from working with dropbox, I was able to do a direct WiFi xfer from my macbook.

    Sadly, I did it from work using a super old lame router and it took like 1 hour to do 3 gigs of videos.

    When I got home, I used my fancy AirPort WiFi AC router and it only took 2 minutes for a 3 gig video.

    Now, I can watch all my training videos completely offline.

    THANKS AGAIN for a GREAT suggestion!!!
