The iPad is a great device for both recording videos and archiving movies of all kinds. Unfortunately, managing video files on iPad is not always easy to do. It is true that with iTunes and iCloud it is possible to synchronize videos between computer and iPad but only a few video formats are supported including MP4, H.264, M4V, MOV, MPEG-4 and M-JPEG.
For example, if you want to copy and play WMV videos on iPad, you will notice that it is not possible. Below we will see how to overcome this problem and how transfer videos from iPad to PC and from PC to iPad.

- Part 2: Transfer videos between iPad and PC with iCloud Drive
- Part 3: Transfer videos between iPad and PC with iTunes
- Part 4: Add Videos to iPad with Cloud Services

Today, most of the cloud services have released mobile apps for iPad, such as Dropbox, Google Drive, OneDrive and more. These apps are useful for transferring videos to iPad without iTunes and without iCloud. We use Google Drive for example:
Step 1: Go to https://drive.google.com
Step 2: Log in with your Google details. Then go in My Drive from the left side and open a folder to store your videos.
Step 3: Drag and drop the videos you want to play on iPad into the folder to upload them to Google Drive first.
Step 4: When finished, activate the Google Drive app on your iPad and you will find the videos. Now you can play them and / or move them to another place.
Note: Cloud services are capable of transfer videos between iPad and PC, but the videos are stored on the server. Also, the videos are not saved in the memory of your iPad. It also requires a good Wi-Fi network.
Both iCloud and third-party cloud services cannot copy large video to iPad. For advanced users, TunesGO is a good way to quickly transfer your movie collection to iPad or copy video from iPad to PC. Here are the features of TunesGO:
> Add movies, TV shows and more to iPad with one click.

I downloaded and installed Tunes go but when I connect my ipad to the pc it first appears that the drive is being installed then in the end it is impossible to connect to your device. Can you help me?
Make sure you:
1. You have installed iTunes (latest version) on your computer. In this way you will automatically have all the drivers necessary to make the iPad detect the computer and therefore also the program
2. Momentarily turn off the iCloud service on the iPad
Then try again to connect the device to the computer .. a notification “Authorize this PC?” Should appear on the iPad screen. Press on Authorize and at that point TunesGO will be able to access your ipad data and start managing.
