Method 3. How to Transfer Movies to iPad with iTunes
If you have bought movies from the iTunes Store on your computer and want to download these movies to your iPad, it's quite convenient for you to transfer movies to your iPad using iTunes. With iTunes, you can put movies on your iPad without any third-party software.
iTunes could transfer movies to your iPad in two ways: use iTunes syncing or iTunes File Sharing. The difference is that iTunes syncing will put the videos to the corresponding app on your iPad, while iTunes File Sharing allows you to transfer videos to an app on your iPad that also supports file sharing, like iMovie.
Since the way to sync movies to iPad has been detailed in many guides, here I'd like to show you how to sync movies to iPad via iTunes File Sharing.
To put videos to iPad via iTunes File Sharing:
Step 1. Connect your iPad to your computer with a USB cable and wait for iTunes to launch automatically.
Step 2. Unlock your device and trust the computer. If required, enter your device passcode.
Step 3. Select the device icon and choose "File Sharing". Now you should see a list of the apps that support file sharing, including many video-related apps.
Step 4. Choose the app you want to copy the videos to, e.g. iMovie, and then add the video file to the app. You can either drag and drop the videos you want to transfer to the window on the right side or click "Add File" to add the items to the app. Afterward, the file will be copied to your device automatically.
Step 5. When it has finished, Open "iMovie" and click the download icon.
Step 6. Select "iTunes" > "Import [number] Files". By doing so, you can transfer videos to your iPad from PC successfully.
Method 4. How to Put YouTube Videos on iPad
The three ways above will help you to transfer videos from PC or laptop to your iPad. Actually, to add videos to your iPad, you can also download online videos to your device using URL.
As mentioned, the iOS data transfer tool, EaseUS MobiMover, could also serve the function of a video downloader. That means you can use it to download videos from websites like YouTube, Twitter, Vimeo, and more to your computer or iPhone/iPad.
In a word, you can use it to save the video you like to your computer or mobile device for offline watching for free, without worrying about ads or plugins. You can refer to the guide on how to download YouTube videos to iPad for more details.
